What you'll do

I will meet you at “Khadim’s Coffee Shop" (68 Church Street, Cape Town city center just off Long Street) at 1:00 pm and we will depart for Khayelitsha at 1:15 pm (sharp!). We will head to Lookout Hill for a breath-taking view of the township where I will tell you more about its history and challenges. Then, we will stop for a little break at Siki’s, a local café in the township. You'll enjoy a barista coffee of your choice and a muffin/cookie. Finally, we will continue our experience by visiting our own after-school soccer program where you will spend at least an hour engaging with children - either off or on the soccer field! You will arrive back in Cape Town latest at 6:30 pm. Our experience is a little different! We focus on immersion and participation, where you live in the moment. Our no camera/taking photos policy is designed to remove barriers between you as participants and the locals, so that meaningful connections develop. However, photos will be made available to you for free after the tour.
