Township tours

We are sure that our township tours will be one of the most impressive experiences during your time in South Africa, guided by a professional English speaking guide who will be your driver as well. All our tours are designed as private tours for a maximum of 4 persons. A private tour means no additional person will join other than your own party. This way your tour is flexible and tailor-made to your personal interests and background, so that you will gain much more out of it. On special request tours for more than 4 persons can be arranged as well.

Our tours shall establish better understanding for the people and deliver an insight into their lives and daily routines, the personal contact is our concern. To achieve this goal, we include a walking tour for a duration of about 1½ hours guided by a local guideand giving you possibilities for personal contacts.

All tours can be rearranged according to your specifications, please send us an email to let us know your individual interests.

You can choose out of the following tours:

Half day tour including walking tour with a local guide

First we will take you to the oldest township in Cape Town, Langa. There we will meet our local guide who will do the walking tour with you for about 1½ hours. You learn about the history of Langa and meet some families in the hostels, flats and shacks to learn about the different ways of living in a township.

From here we drive through one of the townships where mainly colored people are living to see the difference between black and colored areas.

We continue passing other townships to get to the second biggest township of South Africa, Khayelitsha. Here we visit another social project before we end the tour where we started.

Rate for half day tour (about 4½ hours) including local guide for the walking tour and donations for the families visited:
total of R2,700 for a party of 1-4 guests. 

You might want to add on the lunch in Khayelitsha, cooked for us by a typical “mama” in her house who will join us at the table and share her story with us. For most of our guests this is one of the highlights of the tour! The rate includes lunch and juice. Additional costs per person of R220 (please also add your guide).
