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 kilometer in total, on the ultimate township tour experience. The tour will start at Gugasthebe, a tourist Information Centre, where various non-profit organizations teachart 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. An opportunity to take photos will be granted. This will be followed by a visit to the municipal beer hall built in 1945, as a way to not allow the brewing of local beer made out of sorghum (utywala) by the local community.
We will then visit the local entrepreneur’s business women 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.
