EExperience life in the townships on the outskirts of East London and Port Elizabeth; enjoy spending some time with the local folk; buy a few homemade objects; enjoy the local music; perhaps taste some local beer at a tavern or eat marogo at a nearby restaurant. A morning spent in the Port Elizabeth townships and settlements of Zwide, KwaZakhele and Ramaphosa puts you in the midst of a bustling street market, where sidewalk barbers, wire artists and hooting taxis hold sway. And rest assured – your touring company is an expert crew with a social conscience. During a midweek Port Elizabeth township tour, you'll find places like Zwide, KwaZakhele and Korsten humming with activity. A troop of streetwise goats look left and right before crossing. A few mothers stand, gossiping at a tap and collecting water while their children play. Further along on your township tour, you'll find a market. On sale, everything from fruit and clothes to beaded cell phone holders and doilies. Under an awning, a hairdresser shaves all the hair off his customer's head – they call it the chiskoplook. There's nothing quite like Port Elizabeth township tours – they are so full of life.
