The Juma Art Tours are hosted by artist Juma Mkwela, who became a victim of the South African xenophobic attacks after fleeing his home country due to political and social turmoil. Juma understood such acts of violence stemmed from a lack of education, and saw this as an opportunity for change.
Believing in the transformative power of street art, even in his home Khayelitsha, Juma Art Tours believes in responsible tourism, where guests get involved and impact the communities they are exploring. Whether it be through gardening or painting, guests can know that they are impacting communities rather than merely observing them.
Juma's multicultural team of guides lead a wide variety of art tours, one of which is the Woodstock & Township Art Experience. On this tour, guests can discover the street art, local people, coffee shops, galleries and studios of the two different locations juxtaposed.
Juma Art Tours also offer History and Cultural walking tours of Woodstock, cycle experiences, cooking experiences and an artisanal tour of The Old Biscuit Mill. Township and township nightlife experiences are also available.
