Khayelitsha is the biggest township in Cape Town by population. A township is a high density area and is normally home to the poorest of the poor. Khayelitsha is home mainly to the Xhosa people from the Eastern Cape but is a cultural melting pot - it also has a very small coloured population and foreigners which in the past has resulted in homophobic attacks.
On entering Khayelitsha you will be greeted by shacks especially along the National Highway. Across the Highway would be upmarket houses. It really is a tale of two cities. The National Highway illustrates why South Africa has one of the greatest gaps between the poor and the rich.
Despite the poverty issues, Khayelitsha has a rich and vibrant culture. Its known for its vibrancy and love of South African music as evidence by the birth of Rands lifestyle space in Khayelitsha in 2015. You will experience music, bear and African food in a friendly and safe atmosphere. A tour to Cape Town is not complete without a visit to Rands.
