Start this full day tour by exploring the street art of Woodstock with your local expert guide. Woodstock is the home of many of Cape Town’s artists and creative types and serves as an open canvas for an array of colourful artworks. Your guide will take you on a journey on foot through the streets and tell you the often inspirational meanings behind the murals posted by both local and international artists. You may even get to meet one or two of the artists in their studios. It’s a great way to experience Woodstock and get a better understanding of the area, its history and its residents.
Once you’ve experienced the vibrancy and culture of Woodstock, you’ll head through to Khayelitsha, one of Cape Towns biggest townships. Enjoy an artisan coffee at the Department of Coffee and hear the story about this innovative group of young guys that are the first to bring coffee culture into the township. After you’ve enjoyed your brew, meander the bustling streets of Khayelitsha where you will be introduced to a variety of educational and inspiring street art.
After you’ve gotten a glimpse of how much pride there is in the community, it’s time to get involved! If you love kids, you’ll love teaching a class of eager Khayelitsha nursery school children. Or, you can choose to participate in an exciting sustainability program where you will assist local residents in planting gardens formed with recycled materials. This immersive experience is sure to provide you with a whole new perspective and appreciation of life in the Cape.
After you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll enjoy a traditional “township style” lunch at a local hotspot. Enjoy the food and vibe of this township classic and meet some of the locals while you're there.
When you've had your fill, you'll finish off your day and head back to Cape Town.
