This Cape Town township tour will lead you by foot and vehicle through one of the most colourful and oldest suburbs of Cape Town – Langa. You’ll have the opportunity to engage and understand the socio-economic impact of the Apartheid Regime on such communities.
In South Africa, the term township generally refers to the often underdeveloped segregated urban areas. From the late 19th century until 1994 (when Apartheid was abolished), forced removals of non-whites from city areas to periphery areas occurred. Townships were usually built on the periphery of many towns and cities all around South Africa and were developed informally by the residents forcibly relocated.
People are often conflicted about visiting townships as they are commonly misunderstood. Our local guide, Thelani (AKA the Mayor of Langa) will change this for you. He knows his neighbourhood better than most.
This township tour delves into the African culture through street art, food, music and crafts. Feel good that your money is well spent on products and services in this ever-developing community!
