Full description
Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience. Discover the street art of the vibrant Salt River area on this guided tour. Start your tour at Me'Kasi Coffee, a training center for young adults from impoverished communities. Upon arrival, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and learn more about what the center is all about while you sip. Before leaving, you can opt to buy something in support of the center, but that is totally up to you. Then it’s time to go exploring. As you walk, hear about the history of Salt River and the people who live in the neighborhood. This is also your chance to start adding to your Instagram feed - the architecture alone is enough to fill your phone. By now you’ve probably started to notice some of those aforementioned murals, of which you’ll pass by up to 20 or 30 on your walk. During your tour, learn more about the positive effects these murals are having on the community from your guide. The murals were put up by the organization Baz Art in conjunction with local communities and the city council. Discover the power of street art and its ability to transform communities and individuals. At the end of the tour, you will have seen some amazing art, discovered the revitalized area of Salt River, and heard tales of courage and determination. Part of the tour price will go to BAZ ART NGO for more street-art projects.
