  • Half Day Tour – 4 hours
  • Rate – R 560 per person

The Cultural Township Experience will introduce you to Township life in South Africa as you are guided on an educational, informative and diverse tour. Not only will you hear the history of the Townships surrounding Cape Town, but you will have the opportunity to visit with people who live in the Townships, experience some of the businesses there, and learn about day to day life in a township.

As well as learning about Township life, you will also have the opportunity to purchase handcrafted gifts made by locals living in the Townships. Other highlights include visiting school projects, B&Bs in the Townships, and enjoying a traditional beer at a shebeen.

The tour will open your eyes to the history of South Africa. Following the tour of the Townships, we will visit the District Six Museum in Cape Town. Guests will then be returned to their Cape Town accommodation. Your safety is our priority at all times.
