Description

Experience a vibrant township in the heart of the Hout Bay seaside community. A 40-minute tour of the Imizamo Yethu Township introduces guests to the many cultures that call Cape Town home. With an experienced and entertaining guide, guest will explore a well-known township where informal housing is intertwined with small establishments such as pubs called ‘shebeens’, hair salons, markets and food stalls boasting traditional local delicacies such as sheep heads and chicken feet on the ‘braai’ (BBQ). Embrace the township lifestyle and meet locals who will share insight into their lives, and even invite you into their homes or to join an impromptu street game.

History

In 1989, local government declared a section of Hout Bay land for informal residents, many of whom were Xhosa-speaking people from the Eastern Cape. Allowed to build their homes and small businesses here, the community grew into a thriving township. With the arrival of more residents, including refugees from other African countries, Imizamo Yethu is today considered by some as a fully-fledged suburb of Hout Bay.
