This is the story of the South African ghost. It is a tale not only of the supernatural, but also of cultural clashes and commingling. It is as much an exploration of mystery and darkness as it is an attempt to unravel the evolution of the South African psyche. The ghost stories of each culture have had a profound impact on the supernatural beliefs of every other cultural group in the country. So, while there are tokoloshes, witches and zombies, there are also the ghosts in Cape Town's Castle, and the many haunts of Daisy de Melker.
