This experience is the epitome of Sunday Funday (don't let your Monday ruin your Sunday :). Locals Ayanda and Buntu will show you what it really means to Groove in Ekasi. You will get the full Khayelitsha Township experience, from wine tastings and pairings, to a local lunch to partying to the best local DJ's and music.
Our first stop will be a visit to Lindile Nzaba, founder of Khayelitsha Wines, who will share with you a taste of his signature red and white wines. Please note this is not your traditional wine tasting but a local entrepreneur sharing his love for wine with us.
We will make our way to eKitchen (at the Kitchen), a local restaurant for a late lunch. Then the Sunday Funday will commence at eParkini an outdoor “block party” on Spine Road, one of the busiest streets in Khayelitsha. Locals come here from all over Khayelitsha and surrounding communities to enjoy good music, chill, show off their nice cars, and have a great time. Will immerse ourselves in the local Kaltsha by grooving at one of the popular spaces Kwa Ace.

Frequently Asked Questions
It's a party. Flat out. The food was good, the party was fun. Worth it.
One of the best Sunday Funday experiences ive ever had. You get to feel like a local and connect with the people Khayelitsha.
Start the day with some amazing wine tasting and burgers, then the day takes flight at Rands! Rands is on another level, something that has to be experienced to understand why everyone loves it so much . Music, food, sunshine and dancing. Buntu and Ayanda are wonderful hosts! They always made sure you were having a good time and helped navigate the town
Dont miss this! You'll be wanting to go back every weekend
This experience had us traveling to Khayelitsha for a local Sunday event full of food, music and great vibes. We ate amazing food and listened to amazing tunes. We felt truly immersed in the township and the local culture. The amount of time felt a little too long but a small group of us were able to head back to Cape Town after a few hours so it all worked out. Definitely a South African experience you don't want to miss!
Rands is a vibe - and one you don't want to miss. This was one of the first things I did in Cape Town and also one my favorite things (in fact, because I stayed in town for a week after my program ended I was able to go back for a second time). Buntu and Ayanda are wonderful hosts -- they make sure you're comfortable, well taken care of and are having a good time. On the ride over, Buntu provided a lot of information about Khayelitsha and having that background was really helpful. He's a champion for his city and I recommend doing all you can to support the township.
Enjoyed being among the locals on a fun Sunday, great music, food and drinks.
