Kayamandi Township Homestays
Traveling to South Africa and looking for an unforgettable accommodation experience? Stay in one of the comfortable homestays located in the historic township of Kayamandi!
The homestays are located in the township of Kayamandi (just outside of Stellenbosch) with a population of about 30 000, generally made up of people who came from the rural areas of South Africa (and even other African countries) in search of work and a better future for themselves and their families.
The settlement was established in 1941 and was always characterized by severe material poverty. Though improvements have been made in the last decade, informal settlements still dominate Kayamandi and the absence of parks, playgrounds, shops and social services is evident.
