Scottish Freemasonry in Cape Town

Journey of Self Discovery

Freemasonry is your first step in claiming your right to self improvement and personal growth. Experience practical learning and self-discovery through the three Degrees, which use King Solomon’s Temple as a model to teach how the tools and science of construction apply to building oneself.

Becoming a member

When you join the oldest and most honourable fraternity in the World, you become a part of a Brotherhood that will invite you into their midst with open arms everywhere in the World. Membership is open to all men over the age of twenty one years old, who admit to the belief in a Supreme Being and are of good standing.

Personal Growth

Through study and the guidance of the brotherhood, freemasons aim to improve themselves in order to better serve the Great Architect of the Universe.

Personal Growth


Freemasons worldwide aim to uplift the societies around them and build a better world for everyone through volunteer work, donations, and charity events.


Individual liberty has been the core of freemasonry since its inception. ‘Free’ masons were master masons that were not bound to any ideology, court or location.



The brotherhood of Freemasons welcomes men from every walk of life. Freemasonry is about bringing people from diverse backgrounds to create unity among men.


Freemasonry has its roots in the universal human search for answers to questions such as “Who am I?” and “Where do I come from?” The history of Freemasonry can be traced back to the Middle Ages, where workmen of cathedrals and churches united in guilds. The Grand Lodge of Scotland website offers more information on the history and philosophy of Freemasonry.


Don't walk alone

Freemasons are committed to bettering themselves and their communities. Freemasons are on a journey of self-discovery believing in something greater than themselves, a journey in which they will be supported by the masonic community they are a part of.
