    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Like many African cities, Cape Town has an identity disorder. It’s trying to overcome it – to reconcile the stories of its past with a new story, about its future, but because people with diverse origins call the city home, space here is contested. Nobody’s take on the Mother City is exactly the same.

    Come with me on a city stroll, to discover the beautiful contradictions and the subtle and not-so-subtle shifts that my city is going through.
