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.

My husband and I went on our township tour and African cooking experience (Xhosa really) with Camissa Tours. This black-owned, entrepreneurial tour company was great – Khonaye is the co-owner who I had been emailing with since planning this entire trip 5 months ago, and he was very kind and professional in all of our interactions. The township tour was... More

We took a walking tour of Langa township led by a local who lives in the neighbourhood. So helpful to see how people live, get a glimpse of the inside of homes and understand more about this community, and the ways many South Africans live. Both the tour guide in Langa and the Camissa guide were well informed, politically aware,... More

What I love about this tour is that the guides know their neighbors and interact with them often. I loved that we walked everywhere and did not drive through as if we were in a fishbowl. Because the guides call this home, I felt safe and able to ask indepth questions, interact with the kids, and to engage with the... More

I visited Cape Town in March 2015 with a friend. We booked 2 separate tours with Camissa Day Tours. We had a wonderful Gospel Tour and Private Winelands Tour with Khonaye as our guide. The tours were well organized and very informative. Khonaye was an excellent host. Before the start of our Winelands Tour he was nice enough to take... More

This was my first visit to South Africa since I migrated 35 years ago. I was accompanied by my two adult children and I chose this tour especially so that they could get a glimpse of life within the townships (where some of my relatives still live.)

Zingy talked very passionate and elaborate about the history of South Africa, how apartheid arose, politics, and showed us the daily life in the townships of Langa, and Gugelthu.We got the chance to walk through the township and visit one of...

I was really happy with the tour. Amazing guide and we get to see how people live in township by walking through the neighborhood. Amazing to visit a school and all the children. And then also the guides home.
