About a Trail of two Cities (Cape Town Tourism)
The tour starts with a visit to the townships where you will encounter inspiring examples of how impoverished men, women and youth are building their own houses, growing their own food and developing skills to turn waste materials into contemporary arts and crafts.
You'll be able to support emerging entrepreneurs through buying locally made goods and enjoying the multi-cultural cuisine of the area.
You will also learn about how partnerships between business, governnment and communities are helping to protect the rich biodiversity of Cape Town. We take you to a threatened wetland - the only home of a rare indigenous plant - that has been transformed into a vibrant community nature reserve, a green jewel within a blighted urban environment.
Finally, you will see showcase envirnmental projects that demonstrate how technology and grassroost approaches have combined to provide people with a cleaner and healthier living environment. You will observe how partnerships in the Cape Peninsula National Park, an imminent World Heritage Site, have cleared alien vegitation in order to reduce water consumption and promote indigenous growth. You will also experience what upmarket tourist facilities are doing to reduce their consumption of resources and what they are doing to work with poor communities in their midst.
The Cape Care Route showcases some of the projects where people are caring for the environment and for each other. Initiated for the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development, this Trail of Two Cities celebrates the partnerships that bring prosperity to both planet and people.
