African Adventures

Cape Townships

To fully experience the diversity of Cape Culture, one must explore the seemingly detached Cape Townships, the ulterior side to what makes Cape Town what it is today. Bear witness to a seemingly detached environment, where one will gain an insight into indigenous African cultures, traditions and their struggle coming out of rural homelands and trying to make their way into global society.

Stemming from a vicious past and now with an optimistic vision for the future, this is where rural Africa meets the modern world and where its communities, traditions, arts and culture enter the global stage.

Visit a traditional healer, sip on traditional African beer while you try local cuisine, learn the latest township dance moves and lend a helping hand by donating supplies or your time at a local creche.
