What we're about

Explore a different neighbourhood every month with a growing group of curious locals and expats. We usually walk at our own pace along a specific route while listening to locals' stories and perspectives about the area, using location-aware walking tour app, VoiceMap. The audio walks are created by passionate locals, who either offer them free via VoiceMap's platform, or charge between R11.99 and R69.99 per download, half of which they earn as royalties. As the community grows, we'd love to branch out with new experiences - whether it’s someone showing us their favourite neighbourhood in person, joining an offbeat guided tour, or soaking up the atmosphere at the monthly City Walk. Some of our most memorable meet-ups have included: - Wandering through Bo Kaap under the wing of Shereen Habib, whose family have lived in the neighbourhood for over a century, before sampling koe'sisters at her home, and - Listening to stories within stories of Woodstock's street art scene, followed by cold beers in one of the area's many bars. Once summer is here, we'd love to learn more about Kirstenbosch's flora and fauna on a botanist's tour of the gardens, and to follow the coast to quirky Kalk Bay. If you enjoy walking, stories, and seeing the world through someone else's eyes, you'll fit right in. We're looking forward to exploring with you!
