What makes you a South African?

Is it your history, your language, your culture, your heritage? Maybe it's all about your future, and where South Africa is going.

Cape Town-based tour operator, Wine Flies, is offering a new tour - What Are (is) a South African? - that dives into these debates with a snapshot into the day of a local.

"Don't you want to know how it must feel to be truly South African? Hearing the epic stories directly from the source, sharing our local food and drink with us around a fire, experiencing the iconic sites and things we love just like we do?," explains Wine Flies.

But if you're a local, why go on this tour? Besides the delicious food and drinks that you'll be spoiled with, you'll either discover secret places in the city, or see old spots in a new light. You'll also be regaled by stories from people of all walks of life, and find out a little more about your country. I have been living in Cape Town for five years and ended up in places I have never been to before.

Be prepared to be challenged about what you think about our history and present, and don't be afraid to challenge the guide yourself.
