This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: District Six Museum, 25A Buitenkant Street, Cape Town Central 8001 South Africa

The museum came into being as a vehicle for advocating social justice, as a space for reflection and contemplation, and as an institution for challenging the distortions and half-truths which propped up the history of Cape Town and South Africa.

"The Museum is committed to tel

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Joe Slovo Wall Mural, Langa, Cape Town, 7455, South Africa

Langa is a Township made up of infamous singles quarters, hostels of migrant workers of the apartheid era, a squatter camp, a vast taxi rank, a community centre, and settlers - the Beverly Hills of Langa - Langa is high on the list of ‘to do’s’ when visiting Cape Town and over twenty five percent of tourists take a township tour in an endeavour to ascertain the extent to which the squalor and deprivation of the previously disadvantaged have improved.

Duration: 3 hours

Pass By: Gugulethu 7 Memorial, Ny 121, Guguletu, Cape Town, 7750, South Africa

The energetic community of Gugs, better known as Gugulethu, lies virtually on top of Cape Town’s International airport, about 20 kilometres outside of Cape Town - one of the oldest black townships in South Africa and arguably one of the fastest developing.Gugulethu has been described as a combination of vibrant life, poverty, disease and violence and has its roots in the migrant labour system of the apartheid era, when the number of migrant workers from the Transkei became too great for the township of Langa to contain.

Pass By: Khayelitsha Site-C, A, Khayelitsha, Cape Town, 7784, South Africa

Created during apartheid as a dormitory area for migratory workers, today it is the biggest and youngest black township on the Cape Flats.But Khayelitsha is not the bleak line of shacks it presents along the N2 Highway. Many of the township’s residents live in formal houses - a combination of the 1980s ‘matchbox houses’ and the more recent low-cost RDP homes, and the business district is fast being developed with an open-air high street mall opening for business recently. The film uCarmen eKhayelitsha placed the township on the world map and scooped the Golden Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2005. The film combined the opera Carmen with the country’s African choral tradition, setting it locally in the township, giving it a totally new slant that stunned audiences throughout the world.
