Why a Township Private tour? Tnk Private Tours township private tour is a different experience visiting the spectacular beauty of Cape Town. Here the beauty is not in the mountains, scenery or a plant; the beauty is in the people and culture. Here on our township private tour you will meet up with people, who have struggled and overcome some obstacles.
On this township private tour you will experience the diversity of Cape Town cultures. We visit the District six museums, where they will explain about District 6 a place demolished during the apartheid era. The District Six Museum recalls the history of a community that was forcibly removed in the apartheid era. In 1966 the National Party government declared District Six a “white group area” and moved thousands of residents (mostly colored and black people) to the Cape Flats, where they had few facilities or means of making a living. Nowadays, former residents and their descendants are rebuilding their memories and cultural heritage.
Our township private tour will continue with a walking to Langa Township: Langa is South Africa’s oldest township established in the 1920’s; the Urban Areas Act was passed forcing blacks to live in locations. The name Langa literally means “Sun” in Xhosa, the language which is mostly spoken amongst black South Africans in The Western Cape Province. The true highlight of this tour will be the hour long walk in the township where you will be able to interact with the incredibly strong people, who decided to take their future into their own hands. You will see how many people try to make a difference within their communities and that they contribute to a better future for the townships. You will also see how some people have lifted themselves from poverty and you will see how others are still trapped in poverty.
