“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Get to know more about the township and the people who lives there. We were given an excellent tour by the local guide Africa (yes that is his name).

“A must!”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Definitely worth visiting, lovely people striving for a better life. A small settlement but it gives you a good idea of what life is like in the townships. The tour costs 65R and some of this is ploughed back into the community. Guides are well informed and professional. Visiting the Nursery school was a delight, the children burst into the African National Anthem and crowded around us for 'high 5s'.

“Cannot understand how people can live in such conditions”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Seems like the City has forgotten about the place. Potholes, effluent on the streets and only a short distance from the world famous Hout Bay beaches

“Good insight to township life”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Met at the bus stop by a guide who takes you through the township and is very informative. Able to stop and take photos. Visit the community centre which is made from ship containers and have the opportunity to buy some souvenirs. Glad we did it & would recommend.
