LANGA TOWNSHIP TOUR

Langa Walking OR CyclingTour – 2hr tour

Townships were created as dormitory-styled, racially divided suburbs for black South Africans during, and even before apartheid (political system in South Africa based on the National Party policy of racial segregation). This will most probably be the tour that you remember most vividly, long after you the shores of South Africa. It is all about the people.  To truly experience the warmth, friendliness and humanity of township residents, you have to walk its streets. Hear the children at play, smell the sidewalk barbecues, taste locally brewed beer, learn to say “Molo” and experience what is meant by “Ubuntu”.

Choose to do this tour either on foot or to cycle it.
