History

British-born Cecil John Rhodes arrived in the Cape in the 1800s as one of the most powerful mining magnates of all time. He became prime minister of the Cape and owned the majority of the lower slopes of Table Mountain. His will stipulated that, upon his death, his land be given to the nation. Today, his land is home to the Kirstenbosch National Botanic Gardens and the University of Cape Town.
