Siviwe Tours is a tour company in Cape Town’s Langa township. The travel startup was founded by Siviwe Mbinda, a Langa local, and is aimed at local and international young travellers who are looking to experience township culture. Siviwe Tours specializes in eye-opening guided tours of Langa, Cape Town’s oldest black township.
On a typical walking tour, you’ll see four different housing and socio-economic areas, including worker hostels and informal settlements. You will get the chance to greet residents along the way in our language, called isiXhosa. The company also tries to incorporate cultural entertainment, including traditional music and gumboots dance – which is an after school programme called Happy Feet Youth Project for local children in Langa Township.
