  • Beschreibung


    My name is Thongo, I am a mother with twin girls and a 4 year old daughter. I've been living in Pondoland for 6 years. The dream of my own land has finally become a reality and during the last 3 years, I have slowly been clearing and building what is present. My vision is to create a space for women and children who have no where else to go. A school that empowers children by learning from the environment, building on the proud African tradition of learning under the trees.

    I am also a medicine women and am working towards opening sacred medicine ceremony space as part of my vision. I have formed strong relationships with people in my community and earned trust and respect by fully integrating their values and lifestyle.
    It is very important to me that this trust and respect should continue. Whoever is called to come please learn and listen before judgment is passed. I live a radical existence that many struggle to fathom, bridgeing cultures and building a life for my children that i am proud of.

    Where I live is in the heart of the wild coast, it is a place of unspoiled nature. African village living, mud huts and cow dung floors.
    Our lifestyle is the traditional age old Xhosa/African way, simple living off the land. Chop wood, Carry water. Limited, to no electricity, fires , little, to no cellphone reception. Hard work but with lots of peace, quiet and old unspoiled forests- the ocean is a beautiful walk away.

    African ceremonies are part of the lifestyle here and if you are interested you could part take insomething profound. African healing ceremonies which can last up to 3 days include dancing, drumming, gathering of community, singing and colourful characters.
    You could learn and experience things here which you cannot find anywhere else in South Africa.

A space which manifests into a mystery school as well as being able to hold people for their healing.

    Camping possible. No electricity although once or twice a week devices can be charged.
    Water carried on head, water from rain tank for specifics.
    Bathing in river,waterfall or ocean. Private bathing can be done on the land in bucket. I am still in the process of desiging and putting together comfortable wash spaces. If this is important to you come and help me! No toilet at the moment, dig a hole in the forest, dont be scared the forest is huge.
    Communal kitchen, fire cooking, outside dish washing space.
    We are out in nature there are animals, snakes and bugs. No one has been hurt but it is our reality this is africa. We live and co-exist with nature.
    We will provide food for meals a day but expect helping preparing and cleaning up.
    Keeping it simple.There is a gas stove but limited utensils.Its a make shift bush kitchen.

    The closest airport is Umthata from Umthata there are mostly taxi services. It would be easier if my partner or I can pick you up , we would need to be compensated for gasoline as its a 3 hour trip there and back. In a taxi it would cost you R70 but you need hair on your teeth for that experience. We are willing to bring you here for R350 one way. The roads are rough but the scenery is wild!
    Details about exactly to get here we can discuss according to where you are and your needs.
    There is much to do like Magwa Falls, sulphur springs, walking the coast line, visitng packbackers for great food. Beach visits, forest walks , village visits, cultural visits, horse rides.
    Most transport is local,either hiring a local chauffeur, local taxi or hopping along with us into town. Possible walking or hitch hiking.
