Homestay with Kamamma


Homestays with Kamammas are heart-warming, authentically local accommodation experiences in welcoming, comfortable guest house surroundings. They are located in local communities either on or adjacent to the main travel routes of South Africa. The title “Homestay with Kamamma” is a legally registered brand of Dreamcatcher South Africa which has been developed with Kamammas (a term signifying matriarchs or family/community leaders) over a period of 20 years in various communities across South Africa.

Not all Dreamcatcher grassroots entrepreneurs are female, even though the brand name “Kamamma” does predominantly, but not exclusively, refer to female proprietor/entrepreneurs. That said, the Bhutis (bhuti means brother in Zulu) or Dreamcatcher men–are proud to play a very special and meaningful role within the organization as well as their local communities.

Homestay with Kamammas accommodations are simple and basic: though your room is not decorated in 5 star furnishings, you can expect all the comforts of home. Kamammas offer you a lovely and cozy room, hot water shower or bath, privacy and safety. Breakfasts and dinners are cooked especially for you and the family from fresh ingredients. You may even be invited to cook with Kamamma to enjoy scrumptious but healthy foods which are a part of the favorite traditional cuisine eaten locally! (See our Cook-up with Kamamma information.) You will soon discover that instead of the typical mainstream overnight “Bed & Breakfast” accommodation, your Homestay has turned into an extraordinary 10 star experience with fun and laughter as part of the bill of fare.
