Here’s our top three must-try Audio Tours:
Muizenberg Like a Local: An Audio Tour – By Coleen van Staden
Duration: 40 minutes
Explore the village of Muizenberg through local eyes
“Welcome to what is unashamedly MY Muizenberg. My name is Coleen and I am going to take you on a walkabout through streets that are less travelled by visitors but are very familiar to the neighbourhood locals. I walk here almost daily, and I love this area! This walk takes you off the beaten path, to all the spots that Muizenbergers love. I know its curious little shops, studios and eateries intimately, but I’ll also guide you to all the iconic sights this humble village has to offer. So, step into the shoes of a seasoned local, and enjoy a relaxed seaside stroll!”
Khayelitsha, Our Home: An Audio Tour – By Rachel Chitongo
Duration: 20 minutes
Walk through the vibrant, bustling centre of Cape Town’s largest township
“Khayelitsha means “Our New Home” – it was named that because, in 1985, tens of thousands of black South Africans were moved here by the government, to relieve overcrowding in other townships. My name is Rachel, and I am originally from Zimbabwe. Khayelitsha is a notorious haven for vice, squalor and crime. When I first came here, in 2014, I was curious and very cautious, but soon I warmed up to the heart and verve of the people of Khayelitsha. You see, to the bulk of Cape Town’s population, Khayelitsha is just… home. It is home to people that have dreams, hopes and aspirations just like anyone living anywhere. Today, I’ll tell you a bit about the lives of these men and women.”
Woodstock Street Art Audio Tour – By John Bartmann and Muhammed Sheik Rahiem
Duration: 20 minutes
Woodstock’s world-class street art through the eyes of a local artist
Woodstock’s street art is world-class. Meet local artist Muhammed Sheik Rahiem as he guides you through the streets, telling the story of Woodstock’s art for the last time, just days before tragically passing away in a fire. His passion for the area spans a lifetime, and his inspirational community-building work with both tourists and locals tenaciously conveys what it means to have a big heart in a rapidly changing area.
