Township Tours – Cape Town Tour in South Africa

Our township tours starts off at the district six museum in Cape Town where you will learn about the rich history of South Africa. During the apartheid years non white people were evicted from their homes and displaced to suburban areas without basic amenities or infrastructure.

The Cape Town tours are a must for anyone wanting to discover the other side of life. These tours take you from the legendary District Six Museum, to some of Cape Town's thriving township such as ''Langa'', where you will learn about the British and Dutch rule of the Cape, slavery, Apartheid, and freedom.
