Township Tours, Cape Town

A visit to one of the many townships surrounding the city is an experience that will open your eyes to the way in which the biggest portion of Cape Town's population are living. Despite difficult circumstances and poor living conditions, you will experience the vibrancy and spirit of the South African people.

Take a township tour of Langa, the oldest township in South Africa or Khayelitsha, the second largest township in South Africa. Township tours will usually be co-led by a resident in the area, showcase local industry and community projects and include a visit to a township bar or 'shebeen'.

TIME NEEDED: 1-2-hours depending on the tour

 >  Don't visit the townships on your own. There are many tour companies that offer township tours, including transport to and from the township.
