A touch of art in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, South Africa

After two weeks of exploring the countryside, wilderness and seaside of the Western Cape and Eastern Cape regions, we had two quick days in Cape Town itself.

We dedicated half a day to a Township Tour, an amazing opportunity to be guided safely through some parts of Cape Town’s largest township. This included a chance to walk around one of the communities where the  tour organisers are actively involved. Juma and his team, along with visitors on their tours, help families plant their own veggie gardens and sometimes paint artwork on the homes in this community. It was a wonderfully informative tour with refreshingly open and honest guides, and lovely to see some art of course.
