South African Township Experience

1 Hour

Join us on a captivating walking tour through Cape Town’s oldest Township, where you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the vibrant lives and rich culture of the Xhosa people. Led by a knowledgeable local resident, this guided tour is designed to be uplifting, inspirational, and culturally friendly, ensuring you leave with cherished memories of the South African people.

This experience is a celebration of cultural sensitivity and enrichment. It differs from the typical “Big Five – Game Drive”, offering a more personal and interactive encounter. Throughout the tour, you can engage in meaningful conversations, share stories, and forge connections with the locals.

Embark on a journey to explore various facets of the township, including older migrant labour hostels, shacks, shanties, and the middle-class area. By embracing these unique opportunities and becoming a guest in our townships, you actively contribute to the growth and development of our community, fostering responsible tourism.

As you wander through the vibrant streets, you’ll have the chance to appreciate the talents of local artists through their arts and crafts on display. The rhythmic beats of African drums will fill the air, providing a captivating soundtrack to your experience. For a small fee, you can join in and play the drums, adding to the lively atmosphere.

Join us for a truly memorable and culturally immersive walking tour, where you can embrace the warmth and hospitality of the Xhosa people, gain insights into their lives, and create lasting connections.
