A very personal, safe tour of the Knysna Township
(Each tour gives back a portion to the Emzini Safe House / Project for children)

This company is owned by Ella Mapurisa & Penelope Mainwaring
(We endeavour to bridge the gap in the New South Africa.)

On the face of it, townships seem merely to be sprawling, chaotic zones overflowing with South Africa’s most disadvantaged citizens. This is to some extent true, but make a point to delve deeper and you will recognise that they are also places of great strength, courage, song and dance, survival, love and yes, happiness. Here, there are no high walls dividing neighbours, and people gather in the streets to live a life in communion. We at Emzini Tours will provide you with a glimpse of this reality, offering insight into the areas that people often shy away from.
Over a period of three hours you will be picked up from Knysna and transported to the Knysna Township, where you will Visit a Pre School, teeming with exuberant, laughing children, where you will be given the most amazing welcome. You have no choice but to interact with them and for that, they will sing their joyous songs!”

Drive now through the Township and learn more of the Xhosa culture, and have all your questions answered.
Visit the cobbler, the hairdresser, the grocer and the library along the way.

The next stop is at Ella’s house in the Township for refreshments. This is where the name EMZINI really comes into action – as it means “home” in Xhosa, and Emzini Tours is named as such, to give you that “home from home” experience. Here everyone relaxes, has some refreshments and gets to know one another. You can enjoy hearing the famous Xhosa Click song and others sung for you, and have a go on those african drums and see how difficult it is to get the rhythm!! We will teach you some Xhosa phrases and explain to you more Xhosa traditions.

Pass the best view site of Knysna along the way, with the famous Knysna Heads in the background!

Back to town, after an exciting, happy trip, that people are always sad to end with Emzini Tours. Experience Emzini in the Knysna Township and by the end you will see why it is that WE LOVE AFRICA!
