District Six and Bo-Kaap Tour
On this in-depth, thought provoking walk/drive tour, you will discover how the Apartheid policies of the previous white regime destroyed their homes and displaced 65 000 people in District Six, a vibrant, multi-racial community of over 100 years. Where are these people now? What does the future hold? Why was District Six left empty and neglected, since its destruction all those years ago? Witness reconstruction process.
- We drive through what is left of the District Six area and witness the reconstruction in progress
- We visit the award-winning District Six Museum
We then proceed to the Bo-Kaap, also known as the Malay Quarters, a national heritage site, with its colourful, Edwardian-style homes of the largely “Malay community”, most of whom are descendants of freed slaves.
- We visit the Bo-Kaap Museum and go on a walking tour of the area.
- Optional stop at a local restaurant for a sample of typical Cape Malay fare- potato bhajee, samoosas, melktert and koeksisters
