Rounding the tip of Africa toward the heady aromas of wealth from the East, became the burning ambition of the early Portuguese explorers. First to achieve this impossible dream was Bartolomeu Dias. Blown around the tip of Africa in 1488, he eventually set foot on South African soil at the present day Mossel Bay. Many visits were concluded with successful trade between Europeans and the indigenous Khoi-Khoi group on the shores of Mossel Bay.The BARTOLOMEU DIAS MUSEUM COMPLEX, consisting of four different Museums, seven National Monuments and extensive indigenous gardens.
