Knysna Township Tours :
Nelson R Mandela
"The long walk freedom"
The immortal words of Nelson Mandela, was a central theme in the Mass Democratic Movement's campaigns, from the early days through to the late 1980s. To fully understand the present day conditions in South Africa you have to understand the past injustices, the legacy of the struggle and the promise of reconstruction and development initiatives under way at present.
Freedom has not come easy.
This tour offers a wealth of insight into South Africa's history, educational, political, social, tribal and ethnic.
You have a chance to talk to the people, gather information, see first hand if what you hear about South Africa is true or not. See the culture, traditions, dress, religion, beliefs and history of many cultures but the Xhosa in particular. Eco Afrika Tours enjoys the freedom of the Knysna Township.
Eco Afrika Tours will take you into the heart of this truly unique peaceful African Township. We walk down the little dust roads and meet the people face to face.
