A unique LANGA TOWNSHIP Experience

Langa, meaning “Sun” is a township found in Cape Town South Africa. It is the oldest of such suburbs in Cape Town and was the location of much resistance to apartheid.
Langa has over the years produced some prominent figures in sport, entertainment and other social fields. These famous people in recent times include the late musician Brenda Fassie, international acclaimed marimba group Amampondo, former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Thabo Mngomeni, boxer Nika Khumalo, South African wicket-keeper Thami Tsolekile and many others.

There is a growing recognition that it is not enough to create an awesome incentive programme without including an element that will give something back to the less fortunate communities of South Africa, as well as create an awareness as to how a majority of South Africans live

We can provide a unique township “Life Experience”.  There are 4 legs to this programme, the main group will split into 4 smaller groups and then rotated across 4 different activities, as follows”

Afterwards lunch or “high tea” can be enjoyed at a local restaurant such as Mzansi’s. This activity could accommodate approximately 120 guests. In addition groups can get even more interactive, but painting a school or a crèche, for a half day activity.
