Khayelitsha is a sensitive area because of the high levels of poverty and the social political climate in South Africa. For this reason, this tour will only be offered when we feel that it is safe to take clients to visit the area. We will put all measures in place to ensure the safe visit to this area, but we will not be held liable if an unforeseen incident do incur on a township tour.
