It was in this frontier area that migrant black farmers met up with migrant white farmers. The Khoi-san and Xhosa cultures clashed with the Boer and English cultures, and resulted in a region where there are more forts than the entire rest of the country combined. The historical cultural frontier has given way to a frontier of hope and progress, and the challenges attached thereto.
The residents of the Makana area, much like the original Makana of the 1800's, are taking up this challenge, and are making their way toward the future.
No visitor to South Africa has seen South Africa until they have visited in Makana region.
