Writing about Gugulethu / Guguletu / Gugs adventures is firstly difficult as I have never been to the area but I will surely make the effort in the near future as there is no better way to break down your prejudices of an area than visiting it first-hand.
All I can tell you is that it is part of the Cape Flats in the Western Cape and is regularly in the news. The name Gugulethu is derived from the Xhosa word - igugu lethu which means pride or our pride.
Let’s hope that the Gugulethu residents will be extremely proud of the fact that they are now listed as an adventure destination/town on the Dirty Boots website. We look forward to many new adventure activities being offered here in the near future. They do have some catching up to do with the other famous townships in South Africa.
Soweto has an impressive list of adventure activities that is growing rapidly, so if Soweto can do it I am sure Gugulethu residents can too.
See above a link to the first adventure activity in Gugs.
