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.

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

My wife and I joined the afternoon tour guided by Samantha, a friendly and energetic lady. Conversation with her in a car was impressive we learned a lot, which would not have been in the ordinary travel guide books. At Langa Area, Zingi walked with us and he also showed us banch of places in town. While having been mind-boggled... More

we have visited the townships with Richard and Zingisa, who gave us a walking tour.Richard was perfectly on time at our hotel. We were deeply impressed by the hope and optimism for the future they have under difficult circumstances. It was an eye-opener for us all. Richard and Zingisa have a profound knowledge of the south-african history. After the the... More

Although not the best day trip we did in Cape Town, it was an educational experience of one of the townships. We would have liked to have walked through the second township. The guides were both understanding of our questions and also enlightening about their experiences living in the township. Unfortunately our Robben Island boat was cancelled whilst we were... More

We had an amazing guide (Richard) he really knew what he's talking about. It was a very informative tour but also a very emotional experience - especially the Gospelsingers in the church! Thank you!

We enjoyed our trip to the township. Our guide 'Lo' told us many interesting things. Our visit at the Church was unforgettable. Regrettably two persons of our group had booked the tour to Robben-island at 13.00 pm. The guide wanted to give them some time to lunch and therefor our trip was abreviated (3 hours instead of 4).
