We have partnered with a variety of young local business owners. The first high-end township art gallery has been established by a Langa local determined to change the perceptions of Langa and to make it a must see destination for the youth of South Africa, as well as international visitors. Meet the founder!

Uplift your spirit
African drums have been used since the beginning of time. They have been known to be used as a celebratory gateway to access deeper spirituality. Not to mention, they are awesome fun, and offer a fertile ground for learning. This experience will stir up your spirit!
Street Art scene
Learn about the impact of street art in this neighbourhood. Langa boasts bright art covering the walls of homes and fences of the community. Thulani, a well-known entrepreneur in Langa, headed the street art initiative back in 2015 by connecting graffiti artists and giving them a platform to express their voices. Many portraits of national icons and treasures have been painted such as Brenda Fassie, and Themba Bavuma, a South African cricketer.
We'll take you to a local restaurant that represents many cultures and tastes of the world. The founder was trained at an International hotel school and took his knowledge to destinations such as Dubai, Liberia and Sudan, while also working for famous restaurants in South Africa. He wants to share his love for fine dining with people in his own community and take them on a trip around the world in every course of the meal.
Hang out with business owners
We offer the opportunity for you to meet a mix of local business owners and ask them questions about the work they do and its impact on the community. We love exchanging stories and sharing the local wisdom.
