So, here you are in Cape Town, doing your thing - tasting your way through wine, amazing coffee, restaurant meals and enjoying walks by the seaside. In a couple of hours you have come to the realization that you are in love with Cape Town and in everything it has to offer. Then you embark on a journey of a... More

I did not know what to expect when I came to Khayelitsha an early morning in June. I knew it was a Township and I knew that it would be very different to what I've experienced so far in Cape Town. What I did not know before I came, was that it was going to be one of the most... More

We just moved to Cape Town and were interested in seeing all parts of the city. Loyiso, our guide, did a fantastic job at integrating all 7 of us during the tour. We learned Xhosa, watched a private Africa Jam show put on by talented kids, then we headed out on bikes. We visited a social gathering at a friends... More

Part of the activities included a bike tour in the township provided by Ubuntu - Khayelitsha on Bikes. Loyiso who guided us on the bike tour was extremely professional and courteous! It was an amazing tour that... More

I wanted to see all faces of Cape Town during my stay here. A friend found the Khayelitsha tour on bikes. I have to say this was on of the best trips I had so far here in Cape Town. Nice and friendly people, I learned a lot about the history and the community and it's culture. I met super... More

Recently took a group from Minnesota to visit Khayelitsha to get a glimpse of township life and be inspired by the potential of the youth. Loyiso is a great guide who clearly is committed to his community and loves sharing his community with others. The Africa Jam youth we met at the center were talented, welcoming and gave us all...

Loyoso was an informed, professional and thoughtful host. The tour of Khayelitsha was full of wonder for me & my family (two children). We visited an NGO, schools, oriented ourselves with a panoramic view and enjoyed the food and music which left us with strong memories. For anyoneone considering a visit to Cape Town, this tour is a must. Well... More

A good friend recommended the township tour in Khayelitsha with Loyiso, so when we arrived in Capetown we called Loyiso on our first day and arranged to meet two days later. We were a bit excited - two girls going to a huge township with their rental car... But Loyiso picked us up in Capetown waterfront, so it was no... More

We went to Khayelitsha by our own car and Loyiso picked us up at the exit. But there is also a possibility of a pick-up service by Loyiso from city center of Capetown. We made a 1 ½ hour bike-tour through Khayelitsha and met a lot of nice people living in the township. The bikes are fully functional and there... More
