We are so glad that you enjoyed Imizamo Yethu, however this Trip Advisor page is for Imzu Tours and not for other companies which visit that township. Imzu Tours no longer does tours to Imizamo Yethu, only Langa and Khayelitsha, which are the two biggest...More

We are going to be in Cape Town this May and were planning on using the Blue Line Hop on-off bus. We were interested in getting to do the Imizamo Yethho township tour. However, I read that there was a terrible fire this March in that area and a significant portion of the township was destroyed. Are they still conducting tours? Would it be better to arrange a township tour elsewhere in CT?
