Details

In South Africa, the term township generally refers to the often underdeveloped segregated urban areas. From the late 19th century until 1994 (when Apartheid was abolished), forced removals of non-whites from city areas to periphery areas occurred. Townships were usually built on the periphery of many towns and cities all around South Africa and were developed informally by the residents forcibly relocated.

People are often conflicted about visiting townships as they are commonly misunderstood. Our local guide, Thelani (AKA the Mayor of Langa) will change this for you. He knows his neighbourhood better than most.
