  2. This is the fifth video in the series to promote responsible tourism in South Africa. From our first destination, Cape Town. We continue our walking tour with a local friend and tour guide (Siviwe Mbinda) for walking tour around Langa - the first black township in Cape Town. We get to see how the resourceful locals have coped with the effects of climate change in thier communities, we visit a local sheep's head restaurant, Siwive explains how the community is benefiting from the influx of tourism in the township and we witness the kids from the Happy Feet Dance Group perform their spectacular version of the Gumboot Dance!

    Along the journey, we will also provide our message and discovery, including some useful tips and advice for tourists who are planning on traveling to South Africa, and how they may become more responsible on the road in reducing their impact.
