You will see Langa as it really is. We will visit a Traditional Healer, ‘Sangoma’, the Hostels, share some African Beer (not what you expect) in a Beer House. This beer is called Umqombothi, and is made from maize and sorghum malts, and is very significant in Xhosa rituals. Then, brace yourselves, you’ll see some ‘smileys’ a local dish. I won’t spoil the experience by describing it here. It’s one you won’t forget, believe me.

We will also visit some of the Hostels, walk through the old ‘Pass Office’ gates. These were places the migrant workers were originally housed, often with their families. They are cramped, grim, and dark places, with only three concrete bunks; per room. And, we’ll visit some of the homes where the first Langans lived. We will also visit a local school where relationships can be formed.

local development efforts
The tour will conclude with a visit to our Arts & Crafts Centre – Guga S’thebe, where you will be able to see the work of the local pottery – (for sale) – an important development in Langa’s efforts to become more self-sufficient. I like small groups. I like to engage. I am happy to take any questions. And I’ll encourage you to talk to the locals too.
a taste of Langa
Langa has a long and fascinating history. It may surprise you that Langa was established before Apartheid. It is the oldest Township in South Africa, and was established in 1927, and is about 12km from Cape Town. It’s where several people were killed the same day as the Sharpeville massacre. Tak a walkabout with us and get a taste of part of South Africa’s cultural heritage.
