WIN A bottle of The Tempest Gin as well as two complimentary gin cocktails and a selection of any two tapas at the Montegray & Independents wine bar – the home of The Tempest Gin, located at 6 Bird Street, Stellenbosch.

It's easy to enter!

A tour that really goes way beyond the label of being a township tour. A new found respect was hit home and i recommend this tour not just because of the history and the places to visit, but the pure heart and legacy of the people who live in Khayamandi.

Thembi Kholi was our guide for the day. She is the ever bubbly, humble but proud lady that really have the passion and really believes in the pure naked essence of sharing her story, but not just hers,..nobody is excluded!

There is such alot to experience and you cant but help to get #thatfeelingapartofthefamily feeling.
