We went on a cycling/walking tour to the small township of Masiphumelele (Cape Peninsula) with Awol Tours. We were 7 people amongst 3 children aged 8 and 9. In the beginning we were wondering if this would be safe with children, but it turned out to be an incredible experience for all of us. We went to a kindergarden, library, through very poor shanties but felt safe at any moment and it did not feel funny. Zwai was officially our guide, but it was a girl that finally went through it all with us. In the end we met her mother, who is a sangoma (witchdoctor) who did a dance with her apprentice and with us. This was a bit like a show and did not feel entirely authentic. Also the bead necklaces for sale there were a bit expensive, but we still bought some to support the people and our girls liked them. This tour has been set up to give people some thing to do and they do it well. Also it gives us the opportunity to a very authentic insight view into the life of most south africans.
