We start with a tour of District Six. See the oldest mosque in S.A. District Six was once home to thousands of people of various cultures who lived at the foot of Table Mountain.
Our tour continues to the Cape Flats to visit Langa, the oldest formal black township in Cape Town, and see the local market, an art & crafts centre, and we’ll try to find the elusive traditional healer, but no guarantees! We visit a crèche (if open) offering fun, and a safe haven for the local children. On Sundays we visit a local community church (optional).
We also view Bonteheuwel, Nyanga, Crossroads, and Khayelitscha, home to over a million people, and Gugulethu where we see the Gugulethu Seven Memorial and the Amy Biehl Memorial.
Cape Town has millions of people living in townships, and this tour takes you to visit them and offers an opportunity to find out about their harsh past, to witness the challenges they face every day, and about the positive hope for the future.
At the end of the tour you’ll leave with a greater understanding of how the Rainbow Nation developed and people of all colours live in this democratic country in relative harmony. The rainbow is associated with the hope of a bright future, and symbolises the diversity of South Africa’s unspecified cultural, ethnic and racial groups.
