I would definitely recommend everybody who visits Cape Town to stay a night in a township or at the very least visit one. Kopanong is safe, welcoming and a truly enlightening experience. The dusk walking tour or Khaylesha was a particular highlight of ours with the residents being full of smiles and extremely welcoming.
