Visitors can experience a taste of life in a local township by joining the two-hour long tour through Graaff-Reinet's township, Umasizakhe. Walk around with your local guide - Isaac and visit his family where you can enjoy a refreshing cup of tea and snack on some freshly made roosterbrood - a small bread baked on an open fire. Pass the house where Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, the founder of the Pan African Congress, grew up. The tour ends off with a chance to view some local exhibits demonstrating parts of the Xhosa culture and the opportunity to purchase some local handmade crafts and goods.

You find many children begging in Graaff Reinet, so maybe its a good thing to buy a bag of oranges to hand out to them or some other fruit, its better not to give money as they use it for beer and drugs, so rather buy them food or fruit.
