It remains undeveloped except for a few buildings. From here we visit Athlone (a coloured area), and Rylands Estate (an Indian area).

The on to the Black Townships, and the small squatter camp community of New Rest, Guguletu where we have befriended the people. See how tourism has benefitted this community, a creche is being built, brick making started, we have a couple of trained black tour guides. We will do a walkabout tour, where you can meet the people and take pictures. In fact the people will ask to be photographed.
