Supplies for passing ships

The settlement at the Cape needed produce to supply passing ships. This was grown on farms planted on the mountain slopes around the peninsula. Lookout posts were built which were manned by “spotters” These spotters would use drums to send messages from one lookout to the next telling of approaching ships so that farmers would harvest and prepare their produce for the market. One of the first of these posts was about where Tamboerskloof is today Tamboer(Drum) and Kloof(valley) ie: Valley of the drums.
