Township Tour

Somebody asked me if I go to the townships often seeing all the township photos I post.  I don't venture into the township on my own, but I have had the opportunity to accompany two groups of journalists on township tours conducted by Luvo Ndima of Jama Tours recently.  A lot of tour operators around South Africa do a bus window view of the townships and mostly just drive through pointing out the sights.  Luvo stops the vehicle quite often to get out and allow his guests to get a more personal experience interacting with the locals.  Here Luvo is telling the visitors about the traditional herbs and medicines for sale in Njoli Square.


  1. Too bad there can't be more interaction with the Townships.

  2. It would be nice if these visitors bought some goods there as well as taking photos of the people. (then again, maybe they do!)
