The marvellous town of Mossel Bay, nestled between the warm Indian Ocean waters and the majestic Outeniqua Mountains in the stunning Western Cape Garden Route, is home to one of South Africa's oldest archaeological excavations – the remarkable Cape St Blaize Cave.
The southern shores of Cape St Blaize are lined with tremendous cliffs emerging from the thundering waters below. Over the years the unyielding force of the crashing waters formed massive caverns in the landscape. The Cape St Blaize Cave is just one of these marvellous caves.
Situated in the craggy cliffs directly below the striking Cape St Blaize Lighthouse, the Cape St. Blaize Cave was first excavated in 1888 and it was found that ancient Khoi tribesmen took shelter in the Cape St. Blaize Cave and subsisted mainly on the ample shellfish found in the area.
Ancient artefacts and archaeological finds have been dated as far back as the Stone Age, right up to the pre-colonial period.
