ITINERARY

Discover the multicultural side of Cape Town and interact with the locals. From District Six where forced removals changed the lives of many people to informal settlements where traditional healers and shebeens add to the rich culture of township life. Today we visit Cape Town’s townships.

We call this tour the Rainbow Curtain Tour because our tour is a cross cultural voyage of discovery into the many facets of South African society. This tour is completely interactive and encompasses the history of the lives and development of the disadvantaged communities in Cape Town, starting in 1652.






District Six-Was once the home of thousands of Capetonians of all hues and cultures. In the 1960’s all these people were forcibly removed from their homes due to the separate development policy of the apartheid government. These people were then scattered all over the Cape Peninsula (as far as the city center as possible) to areas known as the Cape Flats. On our tour we visit the original site of District Six (now a barren wasteland) as well as the District Museum.

Langa -The oldest formal township in Cape Town. In Langa you learn about the hostel system that was initiated by the former government to house migrant workers (men) who came to the city to work but were not allowed to live in the city. You also get a sense of what township life is like. Visit the Chris Hani Community School in Langa and interact with the students and teachers.
On our tour you learn the history of Langa and see the living conditions of thousands of Capetonians who were previously disenfranchised. You also get the sense of the spirit of the ‘New South Africa” that exists here.





Khayelitsha-It is here that we spend the bulk of our time. This is the largest informal settlement in Cape Town. We take you see the informal housing (shacks) as well as to see the underground economy that operates here. We visit residents in their homes as well as a township tavern/shebeen.
