Camissa Travel & Marketing
"Camissa" is an indigenous Khoisan word describing the area around Table Bay, known as the City Bowl. It means "the place of sweet waters", derived from the fountains, springs and streams originally found around Table Mountain. Camissa was launched in 2006 by Khonaye, Samantha and Garth as a true "New South African" company focusing on townships tours. We do not do poverty tours; rather our tours focus on the people who live in the townships, who share something of their daily lives, culture, traditions, norms and customs with our guests. Camissa has impeccable black economic empowerment credentials – we are 67% black-owned and managed. Samantha and Khonaye have lived in the townships around Cape Town for years and they personally conduct our tours. In addition to guiding, Khonaye and Samantha have their hands full with our sales effort, building relationships with the distribution channel in Cape Town and abroad. Garth has been involved with historical and cultural tours since 2002 and he is responsible for Camissa operations. Our credo is quality and sustainability.
