Lihle was my tour guide and I loved how knowledgeable he was. His passion and love for this Township came through in how he told the stories and provided details about how the area came to be. I was very impressed and appreciated learning about the area!

Ricky (Mhinti’s husband) was such a wonderful guide. We got a township tour and SO much more - what Ricky and his team are doing for the community is admirable. Thank you for sharing it with us 🤍 And, Mama Miriam’s cooking - come hungry!
