Guests will be collected at their hotel/guest house in Cape Town and surrounding areas. We will then drive for approximately 20 min to one of the oldest townships in Cape Town, known to the locals as Langa (meaning ‘Sun’ in Xhosa), named after a very respected chief Langalibalele, who was a renowned rainmaker that spent time in jail on Robben Island in 1873 for rebelling against the Natal government.
Upon arrival in this township, which was originally developed for black people who were evicted from their homes in District Six under the group areas act, your guide/driver will introduce you to the native local tour guide. The local guide will accompany you on a short walking tour of less than a kilometre in total. The tour will start at Gugasthebe, a Tourist Information Centre, where various non-profit organizations teach art skills to the local youth.
We will visit what used to be a detention Centre during apartheid. The walk will proceed to the local shebeen or tavern, where guest(s) will have an opportunity to see how the local beer known as Umqombothi is brewed. They will have an option of beer-tasting with the locals and an opportunity to take photos will be also granted here. This will be followed by a visit to the municipal beer hall built-in 1945, as a way to disallow the brewing of local beer made out of sorghum (utywala) by the local community.
We will then visit local entrepreneur businesswomen who prepare barbecue (braai) meat on the streets of Langa and showcase their skills in what they enjoy doing. The tour will continue to the old and new hostels to see the transformations done by the government in order to better the people’s living conditions.
Next, we will visit a crèche in the area and head south to the new development housing known to the locals as RDP (Reconstruction-Development-Program) houses, a national initiative to better people's living conditions.
We will proceed to Langa market to spend a few minutes with a traditional doctor known to the locals as Sangoma (optional). Our walking township tour will end at the local public library, where children and adults in the community come to borrow books

Thereafter, we will board our vehicle and explore other places of interest and historical areas. We set off to the next township called Gugulethu (known to the locals as Gugs). Gugulethu comes from Xhosa name ‘igugu lethu’ meaning 'Our Pride'. It was established in 1960 because Langa was overcrowded. Here, we will visit some places of interest with an option of lunch at Mzoli meat place.
After lunch, guests will be dropped off at their hotel at the end of the tour.
