    Join one of the owners of Ashanti Lodge Gardens on a walk through the beautiful neighbourhood surrounding the backpackers. This tour will help you get your bearings of the Gardens area. With its many restaurants, bars, fashion and entertainment, the city-suburb is one of the best places to stay in Cape Town. It's got the peacefulness of the suburbs, but you're only a 10-minute walk away from the bustling city centre.
