Elundini Backpackers

All about our lives running a backpackers, volunteer program, language school and NPO in a South African rural village in the homelands of the Xhosa people.

<p>Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing. Enjoy your weekend all😂!!!<br/>

<p>Home work guidance in action. And again I’m so surprised by the fact that children naturally want to learn.Most of Elundini kids live with their grandparents while their parents are working in the cities. Often they can’t help when their grandchildren struggle in school. Well…. There’s always a solution.<br/>

<p>Elundini is such a great place for #children to grow up. One of our #volunteers introduced the kids into fishing a while back. He showed them how to catch worms, how to make your own fishing rod, how to take the #fish from the hook, etc. Since then they’ve spend hours fishing….<br/>

<p>My parents are in town!!! Visiting the labyrinth in #Hogsback. They say a l#abyrinth is a healing place. If you think of a problem when you enter, it will be solved by the time you come out. Happy days😂!!!<br/>
