SPECIAL PERSONAL GUIDED TOURS
Sunrise Tours Cape Town specializes in personal guided tours in Capricorn/Vrygrond. This is one of Cape Town’s oldest informal and small settlements. On a typical walking tour, we will introduce you the local community. We will visit a few different houses and you can drink coffee at a local family. If you are interested you are more than welcome to visit our project where we distribute breakfast to more than 200 children before they go to school. During the walking tour you get information about the informal settlements.
You will get the chance to meet the residents and ask them your questions.
We also try to incorporate cultural entertainment, including handmade drawings and art – which is made during our after school programme local children in Capricorn. We’re more than happy to tailor township tours to your needs. If you are interested in history, art, music, education, social issues, or health care, we’re happy to customise your tour to suit.
We would love to introduce tourists to Capricorn / Vrygrond, to meet our children and experience a day in their lives. We support hundreds of kids by providing them with breakfast before going to school, because we all know that you can pay more attention at school with your tummy filled!
After school we provide kids with a drink and a snack plus life and hygiene lessons, help with homework and fun activities like sports. All this in a safe environment and with loving care from our local volunteers. It's really rewarding to see kids grow (literally and figuratively) and take care of themselves, their families and their own community.
At the moment we depend on donations from the Dutch foundation Stichting Capricorn.
Our dream is to sustain ourselves in the future, therefore we start organizing tours.
We are proud that 50% of the profit will directly go to our project. And off course we work with locals who live in Capricorn and this way we stimulate them to sustain themselves.
50% of our profit will directly go to our project Sunrise Kids
