Know More about this tour

South Africa’s townships were created as segregated places for blacks only, until the end of the Apartheid era. Usually located on city outskirts, the townships still exist today and while still facing undeniable problems, they hold the highest level of savings in the country, and are acknowledged by government as the economic future of the country.

After meeting your guide in Cape Town, you’ll head out by minivan to discover some of Cape Town’s most interesting townships, like Langa and Khayelitsha. Meet the local leaders who are making things happen for this vibrant community, and hear their views on some of the biggest questions surrounding their future: ‘What if the greatest value of savings were in the townships, and not in the wealthy areas? How will the townships become suburbs? What’s their future?’

  • The tour I went on didnt do any of the things in the tour description. The description has a disclaimer that activities may differ, but by 100? I was particularly looking forward to sampling the Xhosa cuisine but that didnt happen that was the most disappointing aspect for me.

    This tour is also way overpriced. The cost of this half day tour is about the same as a full day tour of the Cape Peninsular and double the price of a similar half day tour in Soweto. For the premium price I expected a premium experience.

  • This is the Township tour you're looking for. Great, in-depth view of life in the Townships, the work and progress being made there. Incredibly informative and a great way to learn more about the history of South Africa free from pressure or propaganda.

  • The tour was very informative it was a different look at South Africa

  • This tour was amazing!

  • more contact with people expected

  • The Township Tour was really eye-opening. It is one thing to hear about apartheid on tv, radio and the news and a whole different thing to speak with guides who can educate you on it. Going to Langa was an adventure in itself. The people were humble, inviting and hardworking. My tour guide Michael was very informative and made the tour very interactive. Thanks!

  • Our guides were really informative and interesting, really positive and they have many exciting plans for the townships, lots of smiles from the children! A must dont let people put you off

  • Awesome Experience
