Description

Experience the lifestyle and culture in a township by staying a weekend in Khayelitsha.

This township weekend tour gives you in-depth history about Khayelitsha, its culture and how gangs impact the community. You'll experience the township and its people by foot, on bicycle and through a visit to a local church.

Itinerary

The weekend starts with engaging with the local community. Learn how to greet in Xhosa (“Molweni”), chat to the locals and experience the vibrant life in the second largest township in South Africa. Throughout the walk, we'll take you for a quick coffee at Sikis coffee shop, visit the local “green” bakery and stroll through the Khayelitsha Mall and Wall of Remembrance.

On a Saturday we will bike through Khayelitsha before ending the day with a proper party at the favourite local hangout, Rands. You'll experience a South African braai meal and dance into the night.

On Sunday we will round things off with a visit to a local church.

It sure is a weekend to remember!

This is a great place for Khayelitsha and I think everyone in and around the area should really support it 100% or more.

Amazing experience and great tour guide who was actually a gang member himself and gave us in depth stories about what being in a gang really entails. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Khayleithsha
