Stop 2

District Six

The former residential area of District Six is one of the most famous Apartheid areas – once a thriving neighbourhood, the area was abandoned when the Apartheid government conducted forced removals of up to 60,000 people in the 1970s. The District Six Museum offers a colourful history into the area as it once was, as well as the Apartheid years and the area’s downfall, and is a popular highlight of townships tours in Cape Town.

Stop 3

Langa Township

Langa is another of Cape Town’s thriving townships, and was also formed in the Apartheid days after thousands of residents from other areas were forcibly relocated. The area was named after Langalibalele – a chief and renowned rainmaker who was imprisoned on Robben Island in 1873 for rebelling against the Natal government. One of the highlights on this township tour is a visit to one of the area’s famous charismatic churches – something that is sure to leave you enthralled!
