A tour into the local townships is often a sensitive experience for visitors. The living conditions often cause discomfort for those visiting for the first time, but the experience is profoundly eye opening and highly recommended. Please note that it is important to be accompanied by a guide into the townships. To find a good vendor for guided township tours you can ask your host, or a tour guide specialist. Having a knowledgable guide allows you to explore in a safe and interesting environment and it also helps the locals feel be more hospitable.
