Cape Town Asks Visitors to Donate One Vacation Day to Cleaning Up the Community
October 27, 2010 at 2:14 PM
The Table Bay Hotel, in Cape Town, South Africa, is getting involved in the community by helping to restore several streets in Langa, one of the Cape's oldest townships, and they are asking their guests to help too.
The initiative is part of the “One Street at a Time” project which aims to build Langa into a sustainable tourism destination. The first street they are tackling is Harlem Avenue, a historic boulevard lined with shops and historic homes, including the home of Chris Hani, the influential anti-apartheid activist. Volunteers will help clean up the area and make needed repairs to homes and businesses along the avenue, which adds a nice positive, active slant to a South Africa vacation.
The hotel is asking all guests to help out with the first phase of this project by using a full day, or even an afternoon, of their trip to volunteer on Harlem Avenue. The hotel will help you make all of the needed arrangements, including scheduling and transportation, upon your arrival.
The Table Bay Hotel is one of Cape Town's most famous and luxurious hotels, located right on Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Room rates start around $575 and reservations can be made at SunInternational.com.
