This guided tour of Cape Town’s Langa township is your chance to explore an important part of the city’s history and culture. Spend the day meeting locals and discover the true meaning of Ubuntu, before taking a trip to Robben Island in Table Bay.

Langa is the oldest township of its type in Cape Town. It was established in 1927 as a suburb for Black Africans before the apartheid era, and it later became a hotbed of resistance to the regime. Today, poverty, overcrowding and poor living conditions remain prevalent, yet the township is also a place of great strength and humanity. During this guided tour, you’ll meet residents and gain an authentic insight into life in Langa. You’ll then cross the city and take a boat trip to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela and many other anti-apartheid figures were imprisoned from 1961-1991. The former Maximum Security Prison is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and museum—a place to reflect on South Africa’s troubled history and the hope of a better future for all its people.

The Cape Town Township and Robben Island Tour would make a thoughtful experience gift for visitors and locals alike.
