Why a Township tour?

A Cape Town township tour is a different experience to visiting the spectacular beauty of Cape Town. Here the beauty is not in the mountains, scenery or plants, the beauty is in the people. Here on our township tour you will meet up with people, who have struggled and overcome. For decades, South Africa has been extremely segregated owing to its apartheid policies. We have some of the greatest separations between the rich and the poor anywhere in the world. By understanding the struggles of the past, seeing how people make the most of difficult situations, and talking with the people face to face you will come home with a whole new feel of South Africa.

How we run a Township tour in Cape Town?

The aim of a township tour is to enable you to experience South Africa like the majority of South Africans experience South Africa. For this reason we include in our normal tour, a taxi drive (in a so called black taxi) from Cape Town to the township of Langa (approximately 10 minutes). Before you climb into a taxi, we will brief you in what to expect from the taxi drive. On arrival in Langa, we set out on foot to explore a wonderful community. Many have expressed to us that being on foot is a more real and immersive experience then driving from one location to another. Here you will interact with the people as they go about their daily lives, you will visit homes and experience a variety of lifestyles and will come back with an experience that you will never forget.
