Incredible tour. Very informative look at Langa by people who are intensely proud of their community. Highly recommended. I only wish we had brought some walking cash.

Don gave us a good tour through the streets of a slum, explained simply why things are how they are. Don was very positive minded and showed us local life as it is. Carry cash with you to taste slum cusine.

We had an amazing time with our township tour. Our guide Don was passionate and welcoming. He was unafraid to lay out, describe, and bring us to different areas of the township, showing us both the scars of Apartheid and the large, warm, strong community that arose from it. Locals were also welcoming and some came up to us for conversation and to play. Unfortunately I did attend the last tour Don held before COVID-19 forced services to close. There were many things I feel like I had to miss. It DOES mean, however, that I next time I'm in the country, I'll do this tour again!

We had a beautiful walking tour of Langa with our local guide Zuzie, very nice and fully committed. During the tour she gave us very interesting insights into the story of Langa and racial segregation. We even had the chance to walk through the shacks and understand local life in the township. Great experience, highly recommended!

The Lange Township Tour with Nati was absolutely fascinating. There was so much to learn about with regard to apartheid and the history of this area that we were completely absorbed. Full marks to Nati for making this such an enjoyable experience, and one full of hope for the future. You really need to do this if you’re visiting SA. 💖
