Township Experience

Each group will have a guide, who will accompany them throughout. We end off with lunch at Le Lapa restaurant with Marimba playing & dancing after which we will transport them back to Cape Town in Day Trippers busses.

Groups will be transferred to the townships in Day Trippers “taxis” and then follow a set of instructions leading to answers to various questions and to a number of activities.

Including e.g: cleaning “smiley’s” ( sheep’s heads) in the meat market, shopping for ingredients, making & sampling ginger beer in a local home, making “african salad” – like krimmel pap in a local home and having the residents rate their efforts, decorating ceramic bowls and finally filling in a crossword made up of answers and questions – answers must be in Xhosa (may not consult with the guide on this, only with locals).

Feedback from our previous Day Trippers:

“Dear Di They had a ball! Steve, Albert & Co. were fantastic and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day you planned for them, myself included. Also, the lunch at Lelapa and the marimba band were great and worked well so thanks for guiding me on that score.”
