Description

Forbes ranked Kalk Bay as the coolest Neighbourhood in the World in 2018. The quaint streets and cafes are filled with foodie delights set between Victorian and Edwardian period buildings. The curio shops are filled with rare books, keepsakes, and fashionable items among bohemian style antiques.

What was is like to grow up in Kalk Bay during Apartheid? Follow the footsteps of  Latifah, a local to this small fishing village. She will tell her tales of a pure and simple upbringing with a  fisherman as a father, and hair-dresser as a mom. Learn a bit of history of the communities and various groups that lived in the area, as well as get a feel and taste of the local food

Kalk Bay remained a mixed community of people from diverse backgrounds even during the Apartheid years. Even while apartheid was a law and prevalent , it did not affect their community due to  the respect for each other despite colour creed. You will get a chance to explore the area before we head to an authentic local fish lunch experience.
