The Bulungula Homestay Experience

In the heart of the exquisite rural area of the Transkei lies Bulungula, where children walk home from school barefoot and women fetch water from the river in groups, laughing and catching up on village news. The Bulungula Homestay initiative invites travellers to immerse themselves into traditional Xhosa life, even if only for a short while.

This project is about creating an authentic experience, though. Therefore, unlike other visits to traditional villages, there are no rehearsed performances and faked celebrations. Rather, visitors staying at the homestead are privy to whatever events and celebrations would normally take place at a particular time. For instance, should you be staying there at a time in which someone gets married, you will be privileged enough to join in the celebrations.

Nearby activities include horse riding, canoeing, fishing, bird-watching, enjoying a massage, or visiting a traditional herbalist. Within the village, tourists are encouraged to get to know the locals and to experience the parties for which shebeens (informal African taverns) are well known. Learn the clicks of the Xhosa language and the history behind their many customs and cultural events.
