The Homestay Experience

Experience the true township life by becoming a member of it, at least for a short while!

We offer visitors the chance to stay in the heart of Kayamandi at one of our homestays, whether as a volunteer helping at one of our many projects, or merely as a tourist to experience life in a township. The homestay is run by a mamma, who will become your surrogate mother for the duration of your stay. All the mamas are fully fluent in English as well as their native tongues.

We provide bed and breakfast service at the homestay, and lunch and dinner can be provided for an extra cost (for volunteers, all meals are included in the price). These meals will be taken with the family at your homestay.

The township is excellently situated for people who wish to visit Stellenbosch during their stay (a short walk or R5 taxi ride) or the new Kayamandi Tourism Corridor, and we would recommend anyone who wants to experience life outside of the normal tourism in South Africa to stay at least a few nights in Kayamandi.
