Kaap de Groene Hoop literally translates into Cape of Green Hope and has been derived from the (in)famous South African Cape of Good Hope. After rounding the cape for the first time the Portuguese named South African’s southern tip The Stormy Cape. Only when medieval sailors realized the value of the unknown world beyond the clashing waves, they changed the name to Cabo da Boa Esperanca: Cape of Good Hope.
