Ally certainly is an ambassador of the area, always eager and first in line to take you around and show you this amazing settlement. With his favorite story about the township -  a man and his wife still using a basin to wash, no forks and no knives and only uses their hands to eat their pap and meat a traditional meal, he will surely keep you intrigued. You can also be left speechless while you witness - feasting on “smiley” and the drinking of “umqombothi”, a local beer.

Here in this remarkable community all the faces you pass are covered with a broad smile and ready to offer a friendly greeting. Activities like sport and cultural dances make this wonderful place a home to each and everyone, not to mention the ongoing projects such as the Early Development Centre and Swop Shop that makes this tour a must on your to do list. Masakhane meaning “stand together” has an amazing story to tell, it’s not just a township but a place where one can experience wonders of ancient times.

Observe and get an understanding of how human beings lived in the past in contrast to nowadays. With a broad cultural diversity and various religions Masakhane is a unique and incredible settlement, not at all influenced by any politics. Here in this little village people live in peace and harmony, calling each other cousin, brother or sister. Literally “Masakhane” and helping one another.Situated just outside the town of Gansbaai at the foot of the “Duinfontein” Mountains.
