I am Jonas Gidwa, a qualified Tour Guide for the Western Cape, living in a Knysna Township. My name comes from a tribe out of the Eastern Cape, the Fengus, we were the first people who made South African beer (Umqomboti) which is famous to all South Africans.
Poverty, joy and happiness are a few of the ingredients that you will experience on this special trip. Meet the people of South Africa in their own Community and see a glimpse of how they live; meet with the children at school or visit the local medical centre.
You will be picked up at your guest house for a 3 hour special experience. You will be able to get a look at their daily lives, thereby changing the general negative perception of living in a Township. Meet the children from primary or high school, visit a shop, restaurant and/or different children's homes. Finish your tour with a drink at the shebeen (indawo yokusela) which is a local pub.
Wamkelekile ukupha abantwana lonto ubaphathele yona; which means: you're welcome to surprise the children by bringing some sweets, pencils or fruits. Please bring your camera for those unique moments.
