- About us
A full sensory experience
The first view most travelers encounter when entering or leaving one of our big cities are the huge informal settlements, also known as townships.
Find out what gave rise to these townships, how township living inspires local artists and why people feel at home here.
Experience this unique culture through a walking tour of a typical township with a local guide. Sample a taste of traditional beer and witness first hand how the many arts and crafts are produced. Meet a “sangoma” and learn about the important role these traditional healers play within their local communities. These unique township traditions and practices certainly make for a fascinating experience.
“Through discovering another culture one discovers oneself” and as we peel away the stereotypes, one gains a unique perspective of how township residents live their lives and how their culture translates into traditional African music and literature.”
This tour should be booked ahead of time as we would highly recommend experiencing lunch in a township tavern near Cape Town to conclude the full township sensory experience.
Tour times either AM or PM.
