Vamos Township Tour

Cultural Tours, Camps Bay

This township experience is about meeting with the locals and sharing experiences on an engaging, rewarding and uplifting tour where you will be left feeling inspired by the pride of the communities living in the township of Langa.

For an authentic township cultural experience you need to walk, to hear, smell, touch and taste. You will be escorted by a local guide on a journey of discovery, exploring the daily lives and culture of the Xhosa people. In Langa, the streets are the lifeblood of the community. It is in the streets where the kids play soccer, where locals trade, walk, socialise and gather. 

We recommend doing an afternoon township tour, where you will have the opportunity to meet with the children from Happy Feet Youth Project. A charity initiative started in 2007, it is aimed at providing townships kids with positive role models and a sense of “belonging” through dance, in an environment where crime is often a strong attraction.  

Your morning tour includes lunch at the famous Mzoli’s, Guguletu (weekdays), Cape Town’s most popular authentic township eating experience. Here, South Africans of all creeds and colours meet to enjoy a traditional braai (barbecue) with plenty of cheers and chats. Weekends in particular are very popular with locals who dress to impress, let down their hair and enjoy delicious fare! A home-hosted lunch is included over weekends and public holidays over the busiest periods and to avoid the long queues. 

The private tour includes return transfers from city based hotels.

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
