We start off with a drive through the former suburb of District Six, this lively quarter of Cape Town is South Africa’s flagship example of how communities, religious congregations and whole families were torn apart by the cruel system of Apartheid and the passing into law of the Group Areas act in Parlaiment, a short distance away. A visit to the nearby District Six Museum will provide further insights into this diverse community and show how the spirit lives on in the memories of those families that called it home.
We then visit Langa, the oldest formal black township in Cape Town for a 2 hour walking tour of the community with your specialist guide. Visit the local market, an art & crafts centre, a crèche offering fun, and a safe haven for the local children and if time allows a traditional healer. Experience the locals warm hospitality as you are invited into their homes and hostels for a unique, personal insight into their daily lives.
Join us on our Half-Day Private Langa Township Tour.
Some of the venues may be closed on public holidays, Saturdays and Sundays.
As District Six Museum is closed on Sundays, we will replace with a visit to a local Langa church during morning service worship time.
This tour does NOT operate on the 25th & 26th December as we all as the 1st January.
