We have found a perfect way to spice up your friends and family’s church weekend experience while turning townships into towns through our history and heritage. Alexandra has never been in such an upward trajectory. It surely fits our slogan of #Turning Townships into Towns.

You can now enjoy our new Alexandra Township Heritage Experience through a park and ride facility that we have introduced from Alex Mall.

This is a very safe guided experience that will leave you and the family having experienced the city in a new and innovative way while enjoying the luxury of being part of the official history of Alexandra Township.

Politics, religion and the arts have long been a strong part of the Alexandra Township community. Visit the oldest cinema by far in the townships of the South African landscape that is to be found in Alexandra Township. It is highly befitting for us as an organisation to celebrate the politics, religion and the arts from home; in this industrious township. All the while offering you the comfort of your best heritage tour in the city.

From the park and ride you visit and enjoy our guided Heritage Experience in the township for a selection of official Heritage Plaques and their historical content.

Meet families and be the first to be a part of a new way of experiencing heritage in Alexandra Township.

Enjoy local cuisine and tuck into the best local food has to offer. Walk the streets of Alexandra Township with locals as a local.

This might be the funkiest way to bridge South Africa’s social gaps and joining the efforts of so many to keep South Africa together. Let us do it while having fun and making new friends for ourselves, our friends and families.

As locals we look for better ways of experiencing our township. Being joined by visitors from other communities adds all the flavour!

Are children allowed?

Yes. IDs will be checked, even if you purchase the no-beer ticket. The establishments that we visit will only allow those 21 and above because of the law.
