Icons of SA - What are a South African

Cape Town

Activity Description

Take an epic journey, from where we came from to where we are today. Experience the legends, our struggles, our food & drink, our world famous sport and globally infamous political sagas. This is our unique culture, this is us. Finally, there is an experience a visitor will have, to know exactly what it feels and taste how it is to be a South African. We lift up the curtains on this one.

We don’t want to say too much, but expect local people, drink and food. Expect ancient stories, intense history & vibrant characters. From tunnels & cannons to drinking wine with a wine maker and having a barbeque in the local community. A day in the life of a South African. Epic, controversial & beautiful.
