Your tour will first take you to Me'Kasi Coffee, a training centre for young adults from impoverished communities. Once we arrive, a cup of coffee or tea is on us, and while you sip, you’ll hear a bit about what the center is all about. Before leaving, you can opt to buy something in support of the centre, but that is totally up to you.
After we’re charged up for our walk, it’s time to go exploring. As we walk, you’ll hear about the history of Salt River and the people who live in the neighbourhood. You might even meet some interesting people since your guide comes from the area and knows it well. This is also your chance to start adding to your Instagram feed - the architecture alone is enough to fill your phone.
By now you’ve probably started to notice some of those aforementioned murals, of which we’ll pass by up to 20 or 30 on our walk. You guide will fill you in on the positive effects these murals are having on the community. The murals were put up by the organization Baz Art in conjunction with local communities and the city council. The vision of Baz Art is to showcase the power of street art and its ability to transform communities and individuals. You can also feel good knowing that the vast part of the tour price will go to BAZ ART NGO for more street-art projects like the one you’re getting the chance to see.
At the end of the tour, you will have seen some amazing art, discovered the revitalized area of Salt River, and heard tales of courage and determination. Before departing, your guide can direct you back to your accommodations or provide tips on what else to see and do in Cape Town.
