Let us introduce you to the Cape Town, seldom seen. The reality is that many people in South Africa are very poor. They live in bad conditions with no electricity, no running water and no services.There are numerous squatter camps in the Townships, usually on the outskirts where people coming to the City to look for work have found a small piece of ground to build their shacks.

Visit the small informal settlement of NEW REST in GUGULETU a community we have befriended through our tours. A community who have benefited from the generosity of Tourists. Here we will take a WALKING TOUR , to meet the people and their the children, visit the new creche, taste the "uqumboti" township brewed beer, and experience their way of life. Visit a CRAFT MARKET where you will find inexpensive traditional Bead work, Pottery and African prints by AFRICAN ARTISTS. Enjoy a beer in a SHEBEEN and experience the exciting Township vibe!
