Township etiquette – Do’s and don’ts:
Do treat all residents with respect and dignity;
Don’t ask too many probing questions which might offend people;
Do ask for permission before taking photographs;
Don’t go into the townships without an accredited tour guide;
Don’t leave the tour group and wander around on your own;
Don’t wear too many jewellery items and carry your camera in a shoulder bag;
Don’t carry large sums of money with you;
Do ask your tour guide to clarify any questions you might have; and
Don’t hand out money – rather make a donation to a charity where your money will be put to good use.
Otherwise, do enjoy yourself and have fun with the locals.
