Attraction details
Owner description: When we started the Business six years ago our focus and specialist expertise was in the townships where two of Camissa owners once resided. Having gained extensive freelance guiding experience for various tour operator service providers in Cape town we so a gap in the market for a tour operator that will offer a service that is different and unique putting more emphasis on traditions customs values and impact of urbanization on all the above rather than focusing on the political history which lead to the development of township communities our business is simple and focused. We conduct Day Tours in Cape Town and its surroundings and facilitate township marketing experiences.The Camissa Team looks forward to hosting you on one of our tours we invite you to do the right thing and get the full picture.

This tour provided a good overview of township life. Our driver Samantha gave thorough explanations and history, and a walking tour in Langa was also included. Very high quality.

Together with my son (age 21) we took this excellent tour to district 6 and the township of Langa. Samantha drove us around, ZinZi walked us around. A real must for getting a better understanding of the other side of Cape Town. Very professional, very respectful and very personal. Your visit will also support the township community. You won't regret!

Visiting the townships seems an important part of getting a balanced view of South Africa today. While it sounds like Camissa is helping to support positive development in the community, we seem to have caught them on an "off day." Our tour had already begun when the driver got a call to go back for three people who'd been forgotten... More

We shopped around for township tours and ended up going with Camissa. Definitely a good move! The tour was extremely informative, not simply on the township but also on the social issues in contemporary South Africa. I would have liked some more time walking around the township, but other than that - the tour was much better than I ever... More

Took an afternoon tour of Langa Township. The tour itself was informative. When I booked I was told that the tour was private and as my family and I were the only ones booked that it could be tailor made. To my surprise we found out once we were picked up that 7 others would be joining us! Would have... More

Our township tour was led by a contractor for Camissa. He was good but we were disappointed that we didn't have the owner. Without much prior knowledge of a 'township' this was a learning experience for us. We walked the streets of the township seeing the many facets of it. We attended the gospel service. Although the tour is pricey,... More

A township trip with Camissa is a very nice way to discover 'the other side' of CapeTown. The guide and owner Khonaye is a friendly guy who knows a lot about the township you will visit called 'Langa'. It's really a special experience. Khoanye has a great knowledge about townships because he used to live in a similar township as... More

My wife, children and I enjoyed the Gospel tour, guided by Khonaye. We walked around Langa with a young and very helpful man who showed us some of the housing, start-up businesses there and explained us about the realities faced in the township. We attended part of a baptist service with excellent gospel music, and were able to tour other... More

I did the half day Township Tour with Camissa. It was very interesting and informative. They used a local guide to show us around Langa and he really knew his stuff and was able to answer my many questions. We learned about history, life and progress in the townships of Langa and Guglethu and got to see many of the... More
