What to expect
At 9 AM, you'll be picked up from your accommodation by Chris Hannival and taken to District Six. In 1968, South Africa's apartheid government began to physically remove the residents of District Six and tear the buildings in this neighborhood to the ground. Chris, your trusty tour guide, grew up in this area and can remember coming home from school to find that families and buildings were gone. Today, District Six is being rebuilt, but the process, as you will discover, is long and complex. On this walking adventure, you will meet residents now rehoused in the area. You will also explore certain buildings that survived the demolition. Discover the St. Mark's Church, a site of resistance, and the Fugard Theatre, a true Cape Town monument. This four hour tour ends at the District Six Museum on Buitenkant Street. Here, Chris will share with you his personal perspective on the exhibition.
