You will be collected for your day of fun, amazement and excitement from the V & A Waterfront or your hotel nearby to start your exciting tour of the beautiful Cape Winelands
2nd Stop - Guided Walk
Experience this unique culture through a walking tour of a typical township with a local guide. Sample a taste of traditional beer and witness first-hand how the many arts and crafts are produced. Meet a "sangoma" and learn about the important role these traditional healers play within their local communities. These unique township traditions and practices certainly make for a fascinating experience.
3rd Stop - Township Music
"Through discovering another culture one discovers oneself" and as we peel away the stereotypes, one gains a unique perspective of how township residents live their lives and how their culture translates into traditional African music and literature.
4th Stop - Suburb of Langa
Langa is a township and suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. It was established in 1927 in terms of the 1923 Urban Areas Act. Similar to Nyanga, Langa is one of the many areas in South Africa that were designated for Black Africans before the apartheid era. It is the oldest of such suburbs in Cape Town and was the location of much resistance to apartheid.
5th Stop - Suburb of Khayelitsha
Today Khayelitsha has a population of 391,749 (as of 2011) and runs for a number of kilometres along the N2. The ethnic makeup of Khayelitsha is approximately 90.5% Black African, 8.5% Coloured and 0.5% White, with Xhosa being the predominant language of the residents. Khayelitsha has a very young population with fewer than 7% of its residents being over 50 years old and over 40% of its residents being under 19 years of age.
6th Stop - Suburb of Gugulethu
The name is a contraction of igugu lethu, which is Xhosa for our pride. Gugulethu, along with Nyanga, was established in the 1960s due to the overcrowding of Langa, which was the only black residential area for Cape Town at the time.
