Township & Rural Tours

We have introduced the township and rural tours in order to complement [the B&B's] project to make tourists stay longer. In so doing, we all hope that they will witness the rich history of the area with the help of our highly-trained local guides.

Tourists get to experience the shebeen vibe - sharing a drink and relaxing in a popular local tavern - giving them a chance to exchange news and laughter, while enjoying the local music and playing a game of pool.
 
We encourage and motivate talented artists and crafters through a capacity building programme that improves their skills and encourages them to be creative in producing unique craftwork in the area. Tourists get to witness this firsthand through self-help projects as a means of income generation, for instance Development of Local Craftwork such as weave grass mats; beadwork, etc.
 
We end the tour by sightseeing through the spectacular hills of Mountain View overlooking Midmar Dam. In so doing, the tourists get to see how the majority of the Mpophomeni community lives their daily lives.

Our visitors comment:

We loved this visit and we were sad to have not spent longer with you. This visit to your township opened a window on reality. We saw how you lived.danced, worshiped and kept in good health. Further more, you showed us such wonderful hospitality with beautiful lunch prepared by your community .the school children looked beautiful in their school uniform and were very polite. Next time we will play football and volleyball with them.
