This experience is an immersive township visit to the vibrant Imizamo Yethu settlement in Hout Bay. You will interact with the locals, visit local project like Iziko Lobomi, where you can buy craft, they charge R30 for entrance. We will visit a youth project Sakhisizwe YDP where you will be entertained by music/dance or soccer. We will walk the streets of Imizamo Yethu and end off at Mama Mirriam's B&B where we will experience local food tasting. This will be an experience to remember.
