Bo-Kaap walking tour with activist descent
February 10 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 amR430
Sedick Slamang, a specialist Bo-Kaap guide will be leading this tour, a first for Culture Connect. He is the nephew of late Dr Achmat Davids, doyen of Cape Malay Studies, who received the National Order of Ikhamanga by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Sedick’s knowledge of the Bo-Kaap’s history is coupled with his personal stories about living in the Bo-Kaap, Cape Town’s oldest cluster of homes.
We’ll go inside a mosque and hear about the colourful houses and community concerns – the hoards of tourists, high rise property developers and the cost of heritage upkeep.
We’ll understand how, where and why Islam developed here, as well as the history of enslaved people and Cape Town’s first political exiles. The history of the Cape and the Bo-Kaap are interwined.
Our short walk ends at Faeeza’s Tea Garden, tucked behind Wale Street in a courtyard. Here we can enjoy classic Cape Malay snacks and drinks, at your own cost.
R430 (R330 paying pre February) for the tour.
We start outside the Bo-Kaap Museum, 71 Wale St, one of the earliest houses built in the Bo-Kaap.
