Taste of Africa, as part of our Responsible Travel initiative, mainly use local families for our accommodation needs, giving the visitor the opportunity of a home-stay for inter-cultural experiences.

For those visitors who wish to travel ‘GREEN’ the home-stay accommodation uses existing rooms and furniture, bedding and all your needs without having to impact on your ‘foot-print’ through the building of any additional structures, or providing any thing specially for you that is not already part of the family needs.

You share the family space, the children, and in some circumstances your host, will offer you their bed for the night that you are there.

The family do it with pleasure, and they love every minute you spend with them.

INTRODUCTIONS:

In African Culture introductions are essential, and part of their culture. The Introductions require not only your name, but where you are from, who your parents are, the size and structure of your family, the names, your interests, your work involvement, and much more.

It is amazing just how this introduction will open discussion through mutual interest areas, even if it is just your local soccer team often knowing your players.

Facilities:

Whether your are visiting one of our Townships, Villages, or Informal Settlements, your comfort depends on you becoming aware of where the toilets are, you could sleep inside and the toilet is outside, you could be outside and the toilet in the house, it may be a pit-toilet, it may be flush. How do you access the toilet. Where do you get drinking water from? What are the bathing facilities? Where does the water come from? Can you help collect water, can you heat your own water? can you help collect wood?

Do not be afraid to ask for a larger bath or a little more water.

Be warned, the African Culture of who does what, is difficult to change. Nettie has me emptying the bath water, something that my male neighbours will not do, this is when I do not, feel part of my community:
