Eat . Play . Stay


Impilo Yethu means "our life" and “our health” in the Xhosa language, and that is what we hope to share with our guests through Homestays and authentic community Experiences!

We are a group of women working together to provide income opportunities for families in our community and share our life with guests from across the globe or even just across our city.

Airbnb has enabled thousands of people around the world to connect with others, share their cities and earn additional income.

We are working to ensure that the same opportunity is available to people across South Africa's economic gap and #HealthyTourism is accessible to all.
