Enjoy a unique interaction and experience the cultural diversity of the Cape Malay community, descendants of the original Malay slaves. We start at the Bo-Kaap Museum in the heart of the Cape Malay Quarter where you learn more about their history and the preservation of their traditions in Africa.

Your story-telling host will then guide you on an entertaining walking tour giving you insights into the historical and architectural landscape that adds so much colour and character to Cape Town's City Bowl. You'll visit a friendly spice shop and discover the aromatic ingredients of local dishes.

The highlight of this experience is enjoying an authentic home-cooked dinner at the gracious home of your host family!
