Cape Town Cultural Tour and Robben Island

Gain insight into South Africa’s past and present by visiting District Six, Langa and other Cape Town townships, including a ferry ride to Robben Island.

This full-day tour combines the richness of township life, with an insight into the daily lives of many South Africans as you interact with people from different cultures and communities. Witness everyday life in a harsh environment which tells of the people’s struggles, hopes and achievements. See why 27 April 1994, the first democratic elections, was such an important day in South Africa.

Round off your cultural experience by visiting Robben Island in the afternoon. This is where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. You’ll get there by ferry and an ex-political prisoner will take you on a guided tour, which includes a visit to Mandela’s cell.

You’ll visit Langa, the oldest formal black township in Cape Town, see the local market and art and crafts centre, and visit a traditional healer. You’ll experience the warm hospitality of a local B&B and a crèche offering fun and a safe haven for the local children. You’ll also visit Bonteheuwel, Nyanga, Crossroads, Khayelitsha and Gugulethu, where you’ll see the Gugulethu Seven Memorial and the Amy Biehl Memorial.

Cape Town has millions of people living in townships and you’ll have the chance to interact with some of them, leaving with a greater understanding of how each of these townships contributes in its own way to the Rainbow Nation.
