DiscoverIkasi is about to introduce township tourism

Published on : Tuesday, November 14, 2017

indexAn interest from friends who were keen to explore and experience Khayelitsha flashed an idea which eventually turned into a business, DiscoverIkasi, which helps locals as well as visitors to find accommodation and tours.


That’s according to Ntsebenziswano November, Discover Ikasi’s co-founder, who explained that when he along with his friends launched searching for places to visit in Khayelitsha, they could not locate any listings online.


The Facebook search ultimately led them to Google listings. However, the information they found was either outmoded or the pictures weren’t of standard. The business that November and friends initiated assists both visitors as well as locals who are interested to visit townships, do online bookings for accommodation and organized tours.


To quote November, “we are not selling entities, but experiences. You can find anything from a five-star B&B to a coffee shop.You no longer have to travel to town to get a coffee shop.”


Township tours are not only about enjoyable excursions but also about knowing the history of the area.


“There’s so much more in the townships; there’s go carting if you go to Soweto for example, bicycle tours which take you around the township,” November told Fin24.
