The Cape Flats, the low-lying, sandy region connecting the Cape Peninsula with the African continent, is where the majority of Cape Town’s nearly 4 million population live. Many of them in poor, underdeveloped or informal settlements, known as townships. Though living conditions in the townships are often difficult, they are home to vibrant communities with rich cultures and thriving businesses.
Wanderer’s Cape Town Township Tours take visitors on a guided visit to these lesser known but no-less exciting parts of Cape Town.
This eye-opening experience will introduce you to the unique rhythm of township life, which is likely to be very different from anything you have ever experienced before. Visitors get to speak with locals, enjoy their food, music, arts and crafts, and a glimpse of what daily life is really like for most South Africans.
We only use local guides from these areas for these tours and this ensures a real authentic and educational experience in the townships of Cape Town.
