This experience combines all tourism projects in the community of Melkhoutfontein, South Africa. This is the community where Dreamcatcher started the first sustainable tourism projects decades ago. On this inclusively local experience, formerly unemployed youth, now proud local tourist guides, share knowledge of the environment, history and culture. The community is involved in developing a sound environmental and cultural stewardship and share fascinating local history and stories.
Visitors report that they soon feel part of this empowering, positive experience, with some calling it visionary, with some opting to lend a handwith a brush-stroke and plant indigenous plants on a former waste dump site, now a botanical garden at the historical St Augustine’s grounds, where the restored calcrete church now serves as a Centre for Arts and Humanities. CookUp Kamammas invite visitors to pick their own organically grown salad, vegetables and herbs for their meals then they cook together and eat together.
All experiences we offer are 100% owned and managed by local entrepreneurs. Dreamcatcher trains its suppliers intensively and helps to calculate market-related and fair prices for their products. We ensure that community-based suppliers receive 100% of the price they quote.
