Tumie’s is a typical township home in Mdantsane and offers tourists an opportunity to experience life in the townships themselves. The business has a strong vision to help empower the community and has done much in this regard. They formed a traditional dance club to entertain their guests and also offer a car wash service, which helps keep the lights burning in other homes.
