DescriptionThe Bicycle Township Tour departs from Masicorp Chasmay Road Campus, and will make a visit to BEN (the Bicycling Empowerment Network). This is a non-profit bicycle organization that imports second-hand bikes, trains bike mechanics and assists entrepreneurs to operate bicycle shops in different communities. A local guide will take you around the township, visiting interesting places and explaining some local Xhosa customs. During school time, you will visit a local crèche where the teachers work under very difficult circumstances. Part of the tour proceeds go towards the betterment of their facilities. A highlight of the tour is to visit a Sangoma (traditional healer) who performs interactive dancing and drumming. For lunch, you will either visit an African restaurant or a local lady's home who regularly hosts the tourist groups and makes an authentic African tea or lunch.
