Khayelitsha Accommodation Route

Curated by
Maria Maile

Maria Maile was born and raised in Graceland, Khayelitsha but lived in many areas of Cape Town before being able to buy her own house. Her working career has taken her from being a chef at the University of Cape Town to setting up various small businesses with like-minded women in her community. It was during this later stage when she was exposed to tourism in the township and she opened her home to tourists for accommodation. In 1998 she was sponsored by the British Council for a tourism course at a local Technicon, allowing her experience and passion for tourism to flourish and push through the hard times.
