Lasting for around 2.5-hours, this dining experience is the perfect opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in local cultures, discover a new community and leave richer for it. Booking is essential and groups must be a minimum of 4 people.
Walking tour of Kayamandi
A perfect pre-cursor to the dining experience, A walking tour of Kayamandi – which means “sweet home” in Xhosa – is part of Stellenbosch’s Route 360 cultural tourism initiative.
Tours run Monday to Saturday, from 10am till 1pm, starting at Stellenbosch 360’s head office in town, from where you will walk to the tax rank to catch a ride in a taxi to the township.
Considered the second oldest township in the country, Kayamandi is a place of great contrast, and the tour will illustrate this as you walk through the paved streets and brick houses, to the narrow alleys between the shacks. Meet and engage with locals before dining with them later in the evening.
