Information - Township Tours Cape Town in South Africa

Western Cape Safaris and Day-Tours

People

Experience the local people on a Township Tour within the Cape Peninsula of South Africa. During a tour, you will quickly realize that townships are not just low cost housing, but also community or single-family homes of varying class within one neighbourhood. Many of the people have economically empowered themselves to a better standard of living through education and entrepreneurship, and choose to remain in the community.

traditional beer

On a Mother City Township Tour you will love the traditional beer as you will love South African culture. In the following article we’d like to explain which ingredients go into the making of this sacred beer. The recipe may differ from region to region, depending on the master brewer and alcohol content. Enjoy the option to taste what was once only brewed for special occasions on our journey through the townships.

Traditional Beer

traditional healers

The Traditional healers can be found on a Cape Town Township Tour in Langa, situated in the Western Cape of SA. The locals seek advice from the Sangoma for reason such as that they cannot afford access to doctors, as the general term depicts, or trust in conventional medicine. Transport to the cities might also be too expensive, painful or scary for the ill, leading to many still preferring to call on the Sangoma for their trusted aid.

Traditional Healers

sangoma

With a bit of luck you could experience a Capetonian Sangoma on our township tours. The traditional healers use healing medicine from the garden of nature. They have an ancient knowledge of homeopathic recipes that have been passed down through generations.

Langa and Gugulethu

Join us on a Cape Town visit to Langa and Gugulethu which translated means "sun"! In South Africa we have a Township Tour which takes you to these areas which developed in the 1950's. At the present time over 200,000 inhabitants live in these slums.

Khayelitsha

The village was founded in the time of apartheid. The old government wanted to have only white inhabitants living in the city centre. In no time, areas like the District Six were torn to the ground.

District Six Museum

Housed in an old missionary church, today’s District Six Museum seeks to retain the spirit of that time with historic images and many old street signs. A variety of books are offered for sale in a small shop so that you can find out more about the great injustices that were done.

Weather Cape Town

The weather plays a big part in our Township Tours. Who likes going on a tour in South Africa on a rainy day?  Luckily, the great Mediterranean climate makes CapeTown trips possible all year round.  Only the month of June is a very rainy month which could affect your outing.
