Tour Details:
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. Some of the venues may be closed on public holidays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
