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>The crèche garden is getting in shape…<br/>
So excited!!! Can’t wait for #spring to start #planting. <br/>

<p>The most potent #weapon of the #oppressor is the mind of the oppressed. So as a prelude Whites must be made to realise that they are only human, not superior. Same with Blacks. They must be made to realise they are also human, not inferior. -Steve Biko- South African #freedom fighter.<br/>

<p>Old #missionary church here down the road with a statue in the garden commemorating the #Christmas Day Massacre in 1850 during the 8th Xhosa War. The #Xhosa people were enraged against the millatary settles because of land and cattle issues which resulted in wiping out all #English milliary men on that particular day. <br/>

<p>Here at Elundini we do things a bit different. Instead of flushing toilets we use compost toilets, hot water comes from our hot water donkey, we use rain water for everything … Even drinking! Most of our lights are solar powered. Tourism doesn’t need to have a high impact on the environment.<br/>
