Description

The tour starts with a visit to the now desolate area, Zonnebloem, which was District Six, as well as a visit the living museum which attempts to represent and recapture District Six in various ways. This follows by a walk through a vibrant black community with all its different social strata. Langa is Cape Town’s oldest formal black township. You will have the opportunity to talk to people and try the traditional African sorghum beer and ginger beer at a small township shop (“spaza”) or a tavern (“shebeen”). Despite the tragic and often troubled history of Cape Town’s townships and informal settlements, the areas still retain a strong sense of culture, with a vibrant community atmosphere and plenty of food, entertainment and enterprise. Many community arts projects can be found along the townships, with crafts such as beading, weaving, wire goods and fabric making.
