No visit to Khayelitsha is complete without a trip to Rands. Whether you’re on a walking tour or have teamed up with other travelers who are eager to explore, head to this outdoor bar for cheap drinks and local food you won’t find anywhere else in the city. Everyone in the township is at Rands for the first Sunday of the month, though any Saturday or Sunday spent here will be unforgettable. This is the spot to drink Castle Light, eat unbelievable shisa nyama, the Xhosa term for barbecue, and spend hours dancing to afrobeats.
