Enjoy an authentic township experience at Malebo's Bed and Breakfast in the charming company of Lydia Masoleng, offering a 3-bedroom home in Khayelitsha. She will prepare anything from a continental breakfast to traditional African cuisine for lunch or dinner. Township tours available.
Guests can go on a walking township tour during the day and spend their evenings chatting with the family over the dinner table; visiting a shebeen with Malebo's husband - Alfred - or relaxing on a comfy couch, watching a local soapie with the family.
For around R80 extra, Malebo will cook you a great traditional Xhosa dinner. Expect generous portions of chicken; red meat; Dombelo (African dumplings to dish up onto your meat) or 'pap' (maize mash); chakalaka (a spicy vegetable relish); and a selection of vegetables cooked in a traditional Xhosa way. Malebo's home-brewed Ungomboti (a traditional African beer) is one of her specialties.
Malebo also arranges entertainment on request: Drink a toast to the setting sun - sitting on a bench on the 'stoep' (porch) - while enjoying the soulful sounds of a Marimba band or a local guitarist.
