Visit Cape Town like a local with a 3.5-hour Township Tour. Designed to give you an insight into authentic Cape Town cultures, you’ll experience the diversity and the history of this vibrant city through a registered tour guide. Beginning with the District 6 Museum, the tour will delve into why the area was demolished during the apartheid era and the history of the community that was forcibly removed. This bittersweet narrative will see how former residents and their descendants have rebuilt their memories and cultural heritage since.

Your tour through Langa will also take you into the township where you will interact with locals and uncover cuisine, tradition and even the shebeen, also known as a tavern, that reinstalled culture back into the area. Discover an unfiltered view of life in Langa and the incredibly strong people who are committed to a better future for the townships.
