Itinerary

Full Day – PrivateCape Town (CBD), Langa, Robben Island

Commence the tour by passing through the “Bo Kaap” or upper town region at the base of signal hill. Discover the unique culture,lifestyle and personality of the Cape Muslim community and their contribution to South Africa’s development. Enjoy a walk through the area, and take an opportunity to capture the kaleidoscope of colour that forms a back drop to the City.

Continue to District Six, and visit the living museum. Established in December 1994, it incorporates memories of this once mixed community and the forced removals it incurred. With the struggle for the land now taking a different form, the museum supports the process of ‘reinventing’ District Six for the present. Depart the city area and head to the Cape Flats, where a stop will be made in Langa Township’s Gugu S’Thebe Arts & Cultural Centre. Housed in a brightly coloured building, the centre is dedicated to the empowerment of the people of Langa and improving their socio-economic situation. Their focus is on alleviating unemployment by providing support services to entrepreneurs as well as the improvement of life in the township through Arts & Culture. Explore the local arts and crafts on display in the various studios, metal and pottery workshops, as well as the retail facility.

Embark on a walking tour with a local registered guide providing the opportunity to be exposed to the community and lifestyle of Langa. Depart to Victoria & Alfred Waterfront for your trip to Robben Island. The excursion includes a return ferry trip across the bay, a guided coach tour of the island and a tour of the maximum-security prison where late former president Nelson Mandela was incarcerated. The tour will end with drop-off at your hotel in the early evening
