AmaMpondo are warm and welcoming people who traditionally live in huts. The old-style Xhosa huts were beehive-shaped. The center of the homestead was the "kraal" (a circular enclosure of interlaced poles or brushwood, or stone, in which the cattle were kept at night). Great importance was attached to their cattle, which was the domain of the men who showed great devotion towards them. It places in perspective the great sacrifice the Xhosa made in carrying out the great cattle-killing episode following the Eighth Frontier War. AmaMpondo have a love for ornaments and beadwork, in particular. Come experience the beauty and depth of this culture with us!

4 Reviews on Sips Bed and Breakfast

We found Sips very disappointing. There was no welcome, in fact it appeared to be a smile-free zone. Although I'd asked for a twin room without stairs because I had a walking disability, we were given the room furthest from reception and had to cross many paths and steps which were uneven and even harder to walk on than normal stairs. The room was just large enough for 2 beds and the wardrobe was pushed against the window so there was no light whatsoever. Very claustrophobic. We asked for another room and were initially told that there were no other vacancies. Eventually we found another room upstairs which was larger, had a window but the light was too dim to read by. The dining room was meant to serve food from 7 till 9. Unfortunately this day it closed at 4 and of course we had arrived at 4.30. We eventually found some yoghurt and chocolate in the town. Staff suggested we go to KFC! Internet appeared to be working but was not available for guests. Grossly overpriced for a very unpleasant experience. We would not recommend!

Everything is clean and the staff are very friendly. A real African experience!

In spite of arriving quite late, the staff and security went the extra mile to accommodate us.
