During the early 1650s the Goringhaiqua grazed their stock all over the Cape Peninsula. They shared the land and its resources with the Gorachoqua and the stockless Goringhaicona. At the mouth of the Camissa River of //Hui !Gaeb, the Khoekhoen witnessed the arrival of Van Riebeeck’s fleet. This in itself would not be strange to the indigenous people as other European ships had visited Table Bay between 1600 and 1652. However, none sought to settle permanently and appropriate the land. This would have dramatic implications for the indigenous Khoekhoen. The first Dutch fort was built on the Parade. Previously it was a Goringhaiqua kraal site.
