Half-day (4.5 hours) Cape Town Township Tour

This half-day Cape Town township tour is definitely something that you’ll want to write home about. Led by your own personal English and German tour guide, you’ll visit Langa, Cape Town’s oldest township, as well as Khayelitsha, South Africa‘s second largest township after Soweto in Johannesburg. During the insightful 4.5 hour tour you’ll walk through the townships and learn about their history and interact with families living in the community to find out more about their daily life.

During the township tour you’ll have the opportunity to visit a number of inspirational social projects, such as the Khayelitsha Craftmarket, which is famous for its unique African themed crafts, and the talented entrepreneur Sandi Mdekazi, who creates beautiful mosaics out of ceramic tiles, glass and mirrors.

As an added treat you can round off the half-day Cape Town township tour with a delicious home-cooked lunch prepared by a typical “mama” in her home. She will join you and your tour guide at the table and share her story while you enjoy your meal together.
