    What to Expect
    Pick up and drop off in small vehicles with air conditioning included from hotels central areas. Please confirm at time of booking if your hotel is included in our central area.

    This tour of the Cape Town Townships offers insight and interaction with different cultures and communities. Witness everyday life in a harsh environment where you will hear some of the 11 official languages being spoken. See why 27 April 1994 was such an important day in South Africa (first democratic elections). This is a true story with a positive and happy ending! 

    We start with a tour of District Six. We see 3 mosques and 5 churches and find out about this area which was once home to thousands of people of various cultures who lived at the foot of Table Mountain. Why did they move and where did they go? It’s a sad, but fascinating story! 

    Our tour continues to the Cape Flats to visit Langa, the oldest formal township in Cape Town, where we’ll see the local market, an art & crafts centre, and we’ll try to find the elusive traditional healer, but no guarantees! Find out how these people live together, and operate their day to day life and businesses in informal settlements.  We visit a crèche (if open) offering fun, and a haven for the local children.

     We also view Bonteheuwel, Nyanga, Crossroads, Khayelitsha, home to over a million people, and Gugulethu where we see the Gugulethu Seven Memorial and the Amy Biehl Memorial.

    At the end of the tour you will have a greater understanding of how the Rainbow nation developed and people of all colours live in this democratic country in relative harmony. The rainbow is associated with the hope of a bright future, and symbolises the diversity of South Africa’s unspecified cultural, ethnic or racial groups. 

     Included – District Six Museum and entrance fee to the traditional healer (if we find him!)
    • Some of the venues may be closed on public holidays, school holidays and Weekends.
