Accomodation

Sisiza-Ukusiza (Pty) Ltd offers accommodation close to the Tsakane / KwaThema township. And from 2019 Sisiza Ukusiza also offers accommodation in Melville Johannesburg, the vibrant student area. Both accommodations are used by our regular guests, volunteers, students and tourists. Anyone who wants to participate in township life, or just wants to visit the city of Johannesburg is welcome.

Sisiza-Ukusiza (Pty) Ltd – Township Volunteer house:

This accommodation opened in 2014.

Here our short and long term volunteers, (inter) national students, guests of the care projects, but also local tourists can meet. The volunteer house  is situated in the Geluksdal Extension, at the border of KwaThema township, in a safe and clean area. Facilities such as supermarket, post-office, church, are within reasonable (although not in walking) distance. The volunteer house is run by the Sisiza Ukusiza management and it is our aim that the local youth will run the -day to day- operation as part of our youth development program in cooperation with the Sithand’Izingane care project. After their training, we aim for the trainees to find jobs in the hospitality industry in South Africa.

Next to the fact that this is our private home, and the home of the Dominican Sisters SA, the volunteer house is also the place for short and long term volunteers, (inter) national students, guests of the care projects, but also local tourists. The volunteer house can provide for max. 6 people, divided in various rooms (single or double). We share the kitchen and after a day of hard work we prepare food and join diner together. We also share sanitary facilities, there is a sunny garden and for transport you are dependent on our car for the volunteer house, or we arrange other transport, or you can organise your own transport (rental car).  For transport (trips, excursions, shopping etc) there is a special price list.

At this point in time the future of the volunteer is not 100% sure, as the Sithand’izingane project decided not to work with volunteers this year, and also the Dominican Sisters are not sure if they continue using this house in the near future.

          

Sisiza-Ukusiza / Melville B&B:

Under our name BE MY GUEST, Bed, Book & Breakfast Sisiza Ukusiza will open a B&B in 2019 in Melville – Johannesburg, the lively and vibrant student quarter of the city.  This accommodation, is a regular tourist accommodation and is related to the township accommodation in Tsakane, and youth development program. Within this program, the youth of Tsakane / KwaThema will be trained to become professional workers in a tourist industry.

At this time preparations are ready and bedrooms ready to occupy. We are now waiting for the Johannesburg Municipality to approve our applications on the different permits. This process takes already 4-6 months but we are hopeful that we can open our doors for our guests and that guests can book a room through the regular international booking websites and AirB&B.
