Our name says it all
Our company is named after the flagship of the Dutch East India Company fleet that arrived in Table Bay on 6 April 1652. Commander Jan van Riebeeck together with his crew of 82 men and 8 women had a mandate to set up of a refreshment station to supply Dutch ships on their way to the East. Van Riebeeck named the settlement Kaapstad (Cape Town).
The Drommedaris paved the way for countless voyagers who have since visited the Cape. She symbolises a remarkable journey to a strikingly beautiful part of the world. Although the Drommedaris has long since vanished from the high seas, her legacy still lives on.
