I visited Khayelitsha with Jenny this February. She picked me up at my hotel in her own car and we headed off for what felt more like visit to friends than a tour. We visited several of her friends, walked around a couple of neighbourhoods and drove through several others. I never felt at risk and got a truly unique experience that really enhanced my first visit to Cape Town. Jenny has an intimate knowledge of Khayelitsha and it's citizens and I came away feeling much for informed about life in Cape Town and South Africa. So complicated.

Jenny took us on a tour of the Khayelitsha township. She collected us from & returned us to our hotel in her car. We left at 10am & returned around 3pm. The township has a population of 2million people. Jenny has worked there for a long time & is full of knowledge on the area & also told us some moving stories. The locals are welcoming & are proud of their community. We walked around with Jenny & Gwen (her close friend in the area) & met a lot of locals. We went to the nursery, where the kids where showing off what they had learned & saw a local club/bar, which was surprisingly stylish. Some of the homes are shacks, others are small houses built by the government & others are brick houses built by the occupants. In another part of the township we walked around with two local men who talked to us about the area & we had a beer with them from the local Tavern. We also bought some hand crafted souvenirs. It was worthwhile to walk around in the township & experience the sounds & smells & see everything close up. The tour wasn't rushed or rigid. We felt at ease the hole time. I would recommend going to Khayelitsha with Jenny if you have any interest in seeing real life outside of the wealthy "white suburbs" Cost was 480 Rand per person including return transport to your accomodation

Jenny took us to Khayelitsha in her private car. There were just the two of us, no other guests. It's been a most memorable day which is due to the fact that Jenny is very close with a family living there. So it never felt like being on a tour but more like visiting friends or family. We felt absolutely safe throughout the entire trip. Learnt incredibly lot, had fantastic photo opportunities and met warm, friendly and lovely people no matter where we walked to. Highly recommendable. An experience of a lifetime. Very personal. Very real. Thank you Jenny. Meeting you and your family was unforgettable. Good luck to you all.

Jenny really knows her stuff and is an honorary member of the 'Khaye family'. If you want to really find out the way people live in Khayelitsha then Jenny is your guide. The tour was interesting and informative and gave the opportunity to meet the real people and see how they live. We visited a pre school, the smallest hotel and some craft outlets all set in this vibrant close knit 'town' of 2 million people. We were shown the different types of housing and neighbourhoods and came face to face with some of the problems these people have to endure. All of this was done with great knowledge and empathy from Jenny and many smiles and much friendliness particularly from the little children of this mainly Xhosa community.. If you go please be armed with books and sweets to give to Jenny for the children as you will want to help as much as you can
