Cape Town Art Tour

Inquire Booking

This tour falls under Toerboer’s Sub - Division: UBUNtour. Ubuntour is derived from the word UBUNTU. Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term meaning "humanity". It is often also translated as "humanity towards others", but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity"

 

Our UBUNtours are all about learning through experience. Immersing yourself in a different world. Travelling and communicating with other people, without prejudgment, and understanding. There is nothing like being among people of different cultures, to take a step into a world not yet discovered in yourself. Develop a love for other cultures and lifestyles. Appreciate the old and the new. Living with Purpose and intent is the new education.

 

Ignite your passion for learning and teaching.
