A warm welcome, good value. Worth to stay at least 2 nights in order to get time to visit the area.

Staying in this small (three guest rooms only) but comfortable bed and breakfast feels more like paying a visit to a family in their home - which you effectively are - rather than staying at your more conventional holiday B&B. My girlfriend and I stayed in a nice, clean, comfortable bedroom with en-suite toilet and shower room. Breakfast is included and other meals can be provided for an extra (very reasonable) charge. One thing I would say is that, due to Khayelitsha being such a large, sprawling place in which you can easily get lost if you don’t know where you are going, it is strongly recommended that you get a taxi driver who is familiar with, or ideally from, the area.

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by three generations of great hostesses: Thope (the proprietress), her daughter Mpho, and Mpho’s five month old daughter Palesa. We were given coffee and tea and we all sat down in their living room to relax and chat for a while after which Mpho cooked us a delicious traditional meal. She then took us for a long afternoon/evening walk around the neighbourhood where we visited various local points of interest, shops, craftsmen, a barbershop (for some mandatory gossiping), and finishing with a festive visit to a very lively shebeen - an informal pub/bar/club - and a few merry beers before returning home to bed.

Everyone we met and spoke to were very friendly, proud, accommodating, inquisitive (in a nice way), and eager to show off the positive aspects of Khayelitsha, one of the largest/fastest growing townships in South Africa, with its own gradually improving (albeit slowly) infrastructure, transport networks, social services provision, et cetera. That is not to say that the negative aspects of crime and poor living conditions most commonly encountered in the media are non-existent or not a problem, but the picture is not as one-sided as it may appear at first glance. During our visit to Khayelitsha we never felt unsafe or unwelcome at any time - quite the opposite, in fact - and it gave us a valuable insight into how the majority of Capetonians live. We really urge others to visit this genuine and fascinating place, and when doing so there is no better place to stay than at Kopanong Bed & Breakfast, “where the world meets”!

If you are visiting the Cape you could do a lot worse than paying a visit to the District Six museum followed by a night or so spent at Kopanong B&B. Most people we spoke to thought we were crazy to risk driving into the township at Khayelitsha & spending a night there. In fact it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. It was easy to find with excellent directions given by Thope - our host. We had a great walking tour guided by her daughter Mpho - enabling us to meet the locals who seemed genuinely happy to see us there - followed by an excellent evening meal. The ensuite room was spotlessly clean - if a little noisy as the main road was quite close with traffic starting around 5 am. Breakfast was a real feast to send us on our way. At no time did we feel uneasy during our visit - all our initial anxieties were completely unfounded. If you want to meet local people & hear their stories first hand spend some time here - you will not be disappointed . We found it inspiring & uplifting.

I would definitely recommend everybody who visits Cape Town to stay a night in a township or at the very least visit one. Kopanong is safe, welcoming and a truly enlightening experience. The dusk walking tour or Khaylesha was a particular highlight of ours with the residents being full of smiles and extremely welcoming.
