What you'll do

Join me on a walking exploration of the city as I take you on a journey through time as we discuss the slave history of Cape Town, the apartheid years and post apartheid South Africa.

We'll visit important locations that will enhance the storyline of the early slave trade in the Cape, their life here and present day society for the locals.

After our walk, we will make our way to a local home for lunch where we will be hosted by Thania or Basheerah. We get to sample their delicious food and delicacies while relaxing in the comfort of their beautiful homes.

Our history is complexed, dark and colourful due to many different periods of rule. We get to discuss the past, the present and the future from different perspectives.

We are a mixed and open minded group of individuals who have all slightly different life experiences growing up in Cape Town.

After lunch, you will be transported to our original meeting point with a new appreciation of the complex history, but amazing potential for the future of South Africa.

Where you'll be

Our day starts at one of my favourite breakfast spots in the city.

We'll explore the city by foot as we get to experience the sights & sounds of the inner city.

You'll get a look into the slave history of the Cape that not many speak about. Passing by historical sights like the Castle of Good Hope, slave lodge, Company Gardens and more.

We end our day with a home cooked meal prepared by friends, in the comfort & privacy of their lovely homes.

Kareem is a jewel amongst guides! He knows his topic well and is really connected to the culture of the community we visited. His warm welcome made us feel like we were not just tourists but true guests with whom he was proud to share his community and culture. His stories were deeply personal and uncovered much of the hidden history that can only be had from someone with real life experiece. And the meal? Oh my! it was awesome. Entirely home made and served up in the home of a local who regaled us with stories of her own. A unique and unforgettable experience.
