This culturally insightful tour begins in the beautiful- Kayamandi “Sweet Home” Township. Discover the everyday life of the locals in this historic settlement while getting a personal insight into their culture and unique African lifestyle.
Experience this first hand from one of the fully equipped local tour guides, born and raised directly from the Kayamandi Township itself. Bask in the rustic scenery the township has to offer while embracing and respecting the fundamentals of this spectacular African community.
After walking through its untouched roads, you are invited to one of our noble iXhosa’s mama’s homes. She looks forward to welcoming you with both arms, giving you a proper African hug and telling you about the many great township stories from her day. Of course, our mama's will never let you leave on an empty stomach so expect to savour deliciously authentic African cuisine, some of which was Nelson Mandela's favorites as well as what he grew up on.

Our tour was fantastic, thanks to both guides for a very interesting tour. Lunch was superb and delicious. Thanks all.
Thank you Thembi, you did a great job in showing us around Kayamandi and introducing us to the history, life and culture of your extended family. Highly recommended!
The tour around Kayamandi with Thembi was great. She is very knowledgeable, but aboveall very fun to hang out with. She was very enthusiastic about her neighbourhood in which she has almost popstar status :-) Also the food was great, while Thembi explained a bit about the background of the food and what place food has in the township's life. Thembi explained in an interesting way how life in the township is, from her own experience and that of her community. Definately recommend in case you would like to get (literally) a taste of the life in the townships.
