And for this reason Wilsons Detectives has maintained an office in Cape Town since 1974.

South Africa’s importance to the Western world is the supplying of ships with fresh provisions, fruit, and wine provided a very large market for the surplus produce of the colony.
By the late 18th century, the Cape Colony was one of the best developed European settlements outside of Europe or the Americas. During the 18th century, pastoral production was the dominant economic activity in the more arid north-western Cape (regions north of Paarl, south of Namaqualand and to the west of the Roggeveld) whilst mixed agriculture was dominant in the south-western Cape. During this period, the VOC exercised enormous control over the economy of the colony and imposed high and increasingly unpopular taxes in an effort to offset the high costs of running the colony.
