What you'll do

We will meet at the Hout Bay Harbour (Fish on the Rocks) , from there we will start the visit of the community. We will take a long walk around the community; meeting interesting local people as the Khoi or Rastas (knowing the herbs they used for ancient generations) , by there I will explain you the situation of our community; where seafood is flooded and poverty and unemployment is the biggest obstacle to overcome. Then we I will explain you some of the projects that Meraki Bay is developing around Hangberg. After knowing the community we will make a little hike up to the mountain looking for the amazing views that the Sentinel Mountain can offer us. Before finish we can try some local food in the community if the visitors want it. We can make this plan, but as this is a unique experience, if you want to stay more time meeting people from the community, chatting with them or enjoying the environment we can work it out!
