We did a fascinating Langa township tour with Nathi, our great guide. It was a real eye-opener to see how people live in the township, often in desperate poverty but still maintaining a sense of real community. We had the opportunity to learn about the history of townships first hand from Nathi who grew up in Langa and still lives there. He was very informative and the morning passed very quickly. Our private tour included a colourful visit to a Baptist church where we were part of a memorable gospel service. Our favourite stop (especially for our 12 year old daughter) was at Happy Feet, a community project where young children express themselves through dance (in gumboots!!) Remember to take sweets, pencils etc to give to the children. It was a lovely experience. We took loads of photos and video and everyone we met was happy to pose. We shall be posting lots of photos back to Nathi to distribute. It was a great experience, especially with older children who will probably learn more about township life from a few hours with Nathi than reading any number of books. Just do the tour, learn something and support the people of the township!
