More About the Deal
The day commences with a look at the picturesque “Bo-Kaap”. Discover the unique culture, lifestyle and personality during a walk through the area. Continue to Zonnebloem, originally District Six, and visit the living museum (closed on Sundays). Established in December 1994, it incorporates memories of District Six and the forced removals. With the struggle for the land now taking a different form, the museum supports the process of ‘reinventing’ District Six for the present. Depart the city area and head to the Cape Flats, where a stop will be made in Langa Township’s Gugu S’Thebe Arts & Cultural Centre. Housed in a brightly coloured building, the centre is dedicated to the empowerment of the people of Langa and improving their socio-economic situation. Explore the local arts and crafts on display in the various studios, metal and pottery workshops, as well as the retail facility. Embark on a walking tour with a local registered guide providing the opportunity to be exposed to the community and lifestyle of Langa. Depart to Victoria & Alfred Waterfront for a brief lunch stop prior to your trip to Robben Island. The excursion includes a return ferry trip across the bay, a guided coach tour of the island and a tour of the maximum-security prison where late former president, Nelson Mandela, was incarcerated. The tour will end with drop-off at your hotel in the early evening. Note: Some attractions may be closed on Sundays and Public Holidays. Alternative attractions and routes will be applied.
Cape Town’s history and culture are inextricably linked with that of South Africa. From the days of the Khoisan to the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck, from the dark days of apartheid to the democratic freedoms enjoyed today, Cape Town has been at the forefront of it all. This tour provides invaluable insight into the issues of human rights in South Africa combined with a tour to Robben Island.
