People and Portrait Township Tour

This must be the ultimate photographic experience!

Unlike other township tours, that simply drives around showing you what a township looks like, our People and Portrait Tours is about the people that live in the township and how to take amazing portraits with your camera, regardless of what camera you use or your photographic skills.  We walk around; with a local tour guide who grew up in Langa, we meet the people while learning about our diverse cultures and photography. Get away from the tourist traps, the fancy hotels and experience the real South Africa with real South Africans.

We have a selection of “models” that are used to being photographed by us, and we always leave a “contribution” as gratitude for them posing so patiently for us. 


Get fantastic portrait photographs in the township Langa, the oldest township in Cape Town.

Photograph the colourful shacks, the children playing in the dusty streets and drink home brew Unqumbothi beer at a local shebeen.

Meet locals as they go about their daily activities, and visit a Sangoma (traditional healer) who will happily pose for you while you adjust your ISO to take photographs of him in his dark and mysterious consulting room.

Our People and Portrait Township Tour can be done in the morning or afternoon, and can easily be combined with one of our other half day photo tours, like the Cape Peninsula, Winelands or City Tour, to make up a full day photo tour.
