Lucy Campbell gives refreshingly personal Cultural Heritage tours aimed at revealing the historical diversities that is Cape Town.

With her enthusiastic and captivating presence, she weaves stories through with her rich knowledge of the Mother City's history, heritage and indigenous knowledge systems, bringing to life the histories of Cape Town that need to be told.

Her walking tours to cultural slave heritage sites within and outside Cape Town include detailed descriptions of the life of the KhoeSan at the Cape thousands of years ago, and the lives of slaves during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

These highly interpretive tours offer insight into slavery at the Cape, and an opportunity to see how other parts of the nation live.

The tours include heartfelt stories of slaves that bring this period of history in the Cape alive.

Lucy, who grew up in a wood and iron house built by her father in Elsies River on the Flats describes her heritage as Hessequa Khoe reaching to Chile, South America.

She is involved in community education and has strong links with numerous education and historical institutions. She also serves on the Provincial Museums Board of Trustees at the Slave Church in Long Street.

Her walking tours have been described as “edu-cultural first people Khoi-San and slave heritage in the Mother City”.

With a focus on the genocide of the First People and the Afro-Asian slave trade in the Cape, Lucy introduces through her stories an accumulated knowledge of history she has garnered in her own personal journey of discovery.

She describes a rich history that lies “buried under the carpet of misinformation” and encourages a celebration of people's truth by sharing these stories. It is part of addressing the pain of the past, something she believes very strongly needs recognition or the instability and dysfunctionality the country experiences will remain.

Some of what she shares is uncomfortable and disturbing, but for those who want a deeper insight into the fascinating indigenous and slave history of the Cape; as a way to get to know the locals, Transcending History Tours is a must.
