Langa and the Secret of Ubuntu

Visiting a Cape Town Township

Travelogue Langa and the Secret of Ubuntu with 8 photos
Tourists returning to visit South Africa after the World Cup have been very positive about the amazing diversity of treats on offer. The country's crime is an issue which still attracts plenty of news, all negative. There's no dispute that the worst crime takes place in the townships. A visit to the township of Langa shows there's another world in those over-populated and impoverished shanty towns, too. 8 photos.
