2 Way Travel started homestays in Tambo Village (Gugulethu) in December 2006 led by Mama Nokuzola and Mama Lydia. 11 years later and the homestay programme is going from strength to strength. It’s a unique experience that offers something special to Cape Town visitors and a way to immerse themselves in the lives of local South Africans. And for the households involved, it generates an additional income that is sorely needed. To date, we have hosted over 900 guests on homestays and the popularity is increasing. Participants arrive as visitors but leave as family.
