To the east of central Cape Town in the Western Cape are the Cape Flats, a low-lying, sandy, windswept flatland that the early Dutch knew as Die Groote Woeste Vlakte (‘the great desolate plain’) but which now supports dense residential areas and informal settlements. Regular tours take visitors into the townships, where they can meet the residents, listen to their music and share their enjoyment. Known to locals as ‘The Flats’, a visit to the area is a unique cultural experience. Find an accommodation venue in the Cape Flats region of the Western Cape.
