Imizamo Yethu Township Tours

Set near Cape Town, the Imizamo Yethu Township in Hout Bay Valley is relatively small when compared to some other South African townships, with just over 33,000 people calling it home. Living conditions are slightly better than they were under apartheid, but not as much as one might think.

Many of the houses in the township are simple metal shacks, little changed since the apartheid era, and certainly not ideal as housing. Others are new and sturdy homes, built by Irish volunteers in 2002.
