We are supporting the local community

Everybody knows that the African continent has many problems due to poverty, but it is only by living in close contact with the local people that one can work out how best to help them. We often visit the so-called Townships and, as guest house managers, we devised a tour to recommend to our guests. We have been studying this carefully with the aim of making people aware by allowing them to experience the typical, local lifestyle for half a day. Also, we take our guests to a school with about 1,500 children and 2 kindergartens that get our support and receive small donations on site directly by our generous guests. In 2018, we were able to turn our dream into a reality and replaced the ramshackle tin-plate structure of a kindergarten with a brick and mortar building thus giving dignity and safety to its children.

Ci tengo a precisare che nonostante questa struttura sia una guest house offre tutti i comfort che potreste trovare in un hotel! Camere comode e bagni privati con doccia, colazione internazionale (sia calda sia fredda), non mancano mai TV-WIFI-AC nonostante tutti i problemi legati alla mancanza di acqua e energia che ci sono in Sudafrica! Abbiamo provato la cucina dello Chef e ogni piatto era sublime!!! Hanno accontentato anche tutte le nostre richieste di provare i piatti tipici del posto anche se non erano previsti. Qualsiasi richiesta veniva esaudita sempre col sorriso sia da parte dei proprietari sia da parte del personale. Quando si alloggia al Kaiatani sembra di stare in famiglia…..i proprietari Paolo e Barbara iniziano a viziarti mesi prima del viaggio quando rispondono via mail a tutte le domande e dubbi che uno può avere, ti aiutano ad organizzare un soggiorno indimenticabile……fatevi suggerire da loro le varie escursioni in base alle vostre esigenze……io e la mia famiglia non ce ne siamo pentiti!!!!!!!! Punti di forza che non mi sarei mai aspettata e voglio precisarli: - Se il vostro safari parte la mattina molto presto e non riesci a fare la colazione prevista dalla struttura, ti preparano una colazione al sacco da portarti dietro durante l’escursione. - Non ti lasciano mai solo e ti organizzano tutto nei minimi particolari, si parte e si arriva sempre al Kaiatani sia per i safari di gruppo sia per i tour privati. Con la mia famiglia siamo arrivati e non abbiamo dovuto più pensare a nulla per 5 giorni…….solo ad amare questo paese che Paolo e Barbara con le parole e con i fatti ti fanno entrare nel cuore!!! Complimenti per quello che siete riuscire a realizzare e grazie mille per la vacanza (ripeto!!!) indimenticabile.

Soggiorno di 5 notti con accoglienza e attenzioni superiori alle attese. La gestione dei proprietari è meticolosa e fanno di tutto per organizzare un soggiorno piacevole che soddisfi le attese, sia all'interno della struttura che nelle escursioni scelte. I suggerimenti forniti sono perfetti per sfruttare al meglio il tempo disponibile.

Top Gastgeber, Top Essen, Top Lage, Top Unterkunft Sehr freundliche Gastgeber, nicht nur die Freizeitempfehlungen (Morning Walk, Night Safari und Tagestour im Kruger NP) waren Klasse - Abholung jeweils direkt von der Unterkunft, sondern auch das Frühstück (auch Lunchpakete) und das Abendessen. Danke für den italienischen Abschiedsabend. Grazie

Thanks to the entire staff for their warm welcome and their kindness. The guesthouse is very clean, the rooms are a bit small but very well furnished. We really enjoyed the two dinners we had there and there are good restaurants in the neighbourhood. A very good plan if you look for a good accommodation (pool, WiFi, bar, ...) close to the Kruger. Thanks to all Cheers

Abbiamo appena lasciato il kaia tani dopo 5 notti e vorremmo già tornare. Le camere sono pulitissime arredate in stile africano. La doccia è perfetta. Abbiamo cenato da loro ed il cibo era ottimo. La struttura è perfettamente organizzata. Paolo e Barbara ci hanno dato preziosi consigli e ci hanno aiutato nella scelta e nell’organizzazione delle escursioni sia dentro che fuori dal parco kruger, curando tutto nei minimi dettagli. La disponibilità, simpatia e cortesia di Paolo e Barbara sono impagabili! Daniela e Roberta
