Township Tour

Visit District 6 in the Cape Malay quarter of the City and then proceed to Langa, South Africa's oldest township established in the 1920’s when the Urban Areas Act was passed, forcing blacks to live in locations. The name Langa means “Sun” in Xhosa, the language which is mostly spoken amongst black South Africans in The Western Cape.

The true highlight to this tour will be the hour long walk in the township where you will be able to interact with the incredibly strong people, who decided to take their future into their own hands. You will see how many people try to make a difference within their communities and that they contribute to a better future for the townships. You will also see how some people have lifted themselves from poverty and you will see how others are still trapped in poverty.

You will also experience the sangomas, traditional healers; smileys, shop at local market; drink sorgham beer, visit a local kindergarten, while supporting one of the poorest areas of the Mother City.

NB: ALL OUR TOURS OPERATE ON A MINIMUM OF 2 PEOPLE EXCEPT FOR PRIVATE TOURS. IF IT HAPPENS THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON BOOKED FOR A TOUR, THE TOUR MIGHT BE CONDUCTED BY ONE OF OUR PARTNER TOUR OPERATORS ON OUR BEHALF.
