In 1488, the first Europeans set foot on South African soil. The Portuguese Bartolomeo Diaz searched for fresh drinking water in Mossel Bay and was immediately chased away by Bushmen. A copy of the nutshell in which he rounded the Cape of Good Hope can be seen in a museum on the harbor. Worth seeing is also the Milkwood tree, which has served the sailors for centuries as a post office. Letters to the loved ones at home were hanged in boots on the tree – in the hope that another sailor would take him home.
