7 Day Journey
to the soul of Cape Town in Cape Town by Camissa Travel & Marketing
Welcome to your soul journey! On this trip, you’ll be personally guided to some of the most important, most inspirational, most evocative yet also the most forgotten and neglected parts of the magical Mother City, Cape Town. Your various trips touch on the history of the struggle for human rights, but also the modern fight for land, dignity, employment and education: you’ll witness first-hand the stories and lives of people and communities who have overcome incredible obstacles yet have achieved great things. This is truly a trip to from which you cannot emerge unmoved.
On Day 1, your trip starts with a private airport transfer from Cape Town International to Parker Cottage, Cape Town. If your flight arrives early in the day, you’ll have a chance to acclimatize and enjoy Kloof Street and Long Street in the afternoon and evening which are constantly buzzing with bistros, bars and galleries.Day 2 starts at District Six, and then Langa, Gugulethu and Bonteheuwel, as well as the Joe Slovo Informal Settlement. We’ll stop for lunch in Langa at a local eatery and to the Robben Island Ferry.
On Day 3, you get to travel the way that locals do: on the train! Arriving back in Langa, you’ll visit a kitchen garden project and enjoy a lunch prepared from the harvest there. Straight after that, we’ll be meeting young players for a game of soccer ending with a home-cooked ‘braai’ under the setting sun. You’ll then be transferred to your next lodging, The Vineyard Hotel in Constantia.
On Day 4, you’ll be putting your cooking skills to the test, learning how to cook traditional isiXhosa dishes. Food and its preparation are so very close to the soul of African people and whilst learning how to cook, you’ll come to understand more about cultural traditions and passing them on to the next generation. The second half of the day (after you’ve eaten your own creation!) will be a chance to sit back and take in the majestic scenery of the Cape Peninsula. You’ll be staying at The Vineyard again tonight.
On Day 5, we’ll take you on our tour of the Cape Winelands, dropping you off at your lodging for the night, The Oude Werf in Stellenbosch.
Day 6 we’ll take you on a walking tour of Stellenbosch and then for a picnic at Vergelen just before your transfer back to the airport.
