Township tours South Africa
Abuzz with vivid social culture, a township simply must be visited, as it represents and reflects joy in freedom, human rights, justice and reconciliation. It houses many significant locations of the apartheid struggle from the Hector Pieterson memorial in Soweto to the forced removals to Langa in Cape Town.
With the ‘shebeens’ (brewing houses) and the ‘sangomas’ (witchdoctors) selling ‘muti’ or cures for every ailment, a township visit is a unique, emotional and sensory experience. Each township tells its own story about its establishment, its struggle through the apartheid years and its current situation.
