Owner description: When we started the Business six years ago our focus and specialist expertise was in the townships where two of Camissa owners once resided. Having gained extensive freelance guiding experience for various tour operator service providers in Cape town we so a gap in the market for a tour operator that will offer a service that is different and unique putting more emphasis on traditions customs values and impact of urbanization on all the above rather than focusing on the political history which lead to the development of township communities our business is simple and focused. We conduct Day Tours in Cape Town and its surroundings and facilitate township marketing experiences.The Camissa Team looks forward to hosting you on one of our tours we invite you to do the right thing and get the full picture.

I really enjoyed this tour. It is challenges to not feel as if one is a voyeur to others pain, but this tour was done respectfully. There was excellent education, conversation, and the guide felt honest and sincere in sharing his personal reflections about post-Apartheid townships experiences. I would recommend this. Wear comfortable shoes.
My only concern was problems with pick-up and miscommunication. They made up for it in kindness.

My boyfriend and I did the Eco Township tour and we enjoyed it very much! Our guides Samantha and Zingi, were very knowledgeable and friendly people. The experience of taking the train and walk through Langa on your own pace, is the best way to feel the atmosphere. The tour ends with a delicious traditional lunch. We would definitely recommand the tour to everyone visiting us. Thank you!

Samantha did a great job at taking the time to explain the "Apartheid"-history and current situation of South Africa. She took us to Langa Township where we visited the baptist church (including choir!) and after that we walked through the township with a resident. In that way we were able to really see how people live and to talk to them. I would say this is a must see when in the Cape Town area, just to see the other side of this great city. Definitely recommend to book a tour with Samantha / Camissa!

We visited two townships in Cape Flats region of Cape Town with Camissa. Our guides were residents of the Langa Township that we toured and their knowledge of the area and pride in its progress infused the experience. A big plus was that in Langa we got out of the van and walked through through the community, visiting a school and the home of one of our guides. I was struck by the contrast between the harsh conditions in which many of the township's residents live and the optimism that seems to pervade the neighborhoods. To get a glimpse of the complexity and promise of Nelson Mandela's dream first-hand and unvarnished, spend a half-day on this must-do tour.
