Langa Township 2 Hour Group Walking Tours
We specialize in eye-opening guided tours of Langa, Cape Town’s oldest township.
The tour takes you into the life of the township, our lives, and teach you about our culture and how things are done in our community. We visit informal businesses like Sheeben, Sheep's head restaurant, and spaza shops. We are welcomed into a home and you will see all the different housing that exist in our township. You learn more about the history, education, sports, politics, hopes, dreams, challenges and opportunities of the township.
All our guides are Langa locals and know the community inside and out. The tour and Itinerary will look slightly different depending on your guide, as our guides include personal stories and experiences as well.
Our groups are small to make sure your visit will be personal.
Our tours are all about interaction, getting to know our community and to better understand the dynamics and the people.
The tours are very family friendly!
On Sunday mornings we include a church visit with Gospel singing.
It's a 2 - 2,5-hour walking tour and if you have included transport-the time for transport time will be added to this.
Payment will be in cash on the day of the tour to your guide or paid before the tour via EFT transfer or deposit.
