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>Part of our UK #school group going of on a hike to our own secret #waterfall. Check out our new rondavel that they’ve helped build.<br/>

<p>I finally did it myself … The overnight horse ride from #Hogsback to Elundini with #amatholehorsetrails from @terrakhaya. Wow…It’s an amazing ride. We are just so blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world. <br/>

<p>One of the #projects we initiated this year is the establishment of a permaculture garden for the local #kindergarten. #Veggies are growing…Check, fruit trees are in…Check, just waiting for potato seeds. Special thanks to @echappee.australe, @mariekeehrlicher, Sam, Taleen, Kapel de Lusthoven and the whole Elundini community. <br/>

<p>Always wanted to sleep in a rondavel? All our huts are built in the traditional way. You start with a wooden frame that you fill up and plaster with a mixture of water, sand and cow dung. The grass roof serves as excellent temperature control: the rondavels stay warm in winter and cool in summer. <br/>
