Departure date: 29 December
The word ‘Kasi’ for all you non-South Africans is slang for ‘hood’. Our host, Mirriam, invites you into the heart of SOWETO, a hood referred to as the heartbeat of the nation. It is a place that is infused with history, culture and diversity. This experience includes an Umqombothi (home brewed Mzansi beer) tasting experience, within the context of a South African home, where contemporary and traditional culture meet. A traditional lunch is served along with the beer tasting.
A dance session follows, where you have the chance to cut loose to local music and learn the Mzansi way to move. Not to forget, there will be opportunity to play childhood favourite games such as Bathi Amatini, Eggy. Diketo and Mrabaraba.
