The townships of Cape Town and South Africa as a whole may come with an unfortunate image in some eyes, but there’s no reason to let their tragic beginnings define them today. From food to sports, history to arts and culture, each township has its own character and should be spoken about, explored and experienced as such, just like any other city neighbourhoods.
Thanks to many initiatives from events to tours to exciting new businesses, anybody and everybody can now go to and explore many townships, tear down barriers, make connections and really get to know the city they’re in.
