World War 2 military outpost

World War 2 military outpost

A hidden gem

The Western Cape South Africa has so much to offer in terms of history, including ruins and remnants of battles and  World wars.
Forgotten buildings such as these can be visited by booking a day tour with us. The guest will enjoy scenic drives along the coast and over mountain passes, a short hike, wine tasting at an estate or two, a leisurely boat trip, local cuisine and more.

This building was constructed for use during World War 2 to guard against German U Boats and other naval vessels which were considered to be hostile to the “Allied forces”.


This fort was armed with two “16 pounder” guns which were mounted on carousels in a way that they could be rotated to face their intended targets. 

Some of the operating instructions that were painted on the walls can still be seen today.


The bunkers, change rooms, arsenal and workshop is situated at a lower level beneath the main structure.

The plinths where the two diesel generators that provided the electrical power once stood, can be viewed as well.
About 50 meters above this section is the “lookout” from where the operations were controlled. From here there was  a good view of the guns and across False Bay.


The canter levered roof of this lookout was designed without supports in the front, and is still good today.

You are welcome to contact us for tours or excursions such as these. Let us arrange a memorable day’s fun for your group. All you have to do is sit back and relax in one of our air-conditioned mini busses.
