Option 1: The Real City Tour - Tour Code ZAF004
The Real City Tour gives a great perspective on the development of cities in South Africa.
It covers the city centre with its English heritage and then proceeds to the townships where 75% of residents live.
You’ll be surprised by the diversity of the townships with contrasts of shack dwellings against new housing developments and middle class areas. The myths about townships being poverty stricken shack-lands will be dispelled as you’ll be able to see the growth of these towns. Townships are the heart of urban African life and a repository of history, culture and life stories.
They are incredibly vibrant and dynamic areas that are both heart-breaking and heart-warming.
Your guides are locals who love to share their life experiences and the Xhosa culture.
