To the east of central Cape Town in the Western Cape are the Cape Flats, a low-lying, sandy, windswept flatland that the early Dutch knew as Die Groote Woeste Vlakte (‘the great desolate plain’) but which now supports dense residential areas and informal settlements. Regular tours take visitors into the townships, where they can meet the residents, listen to their music and share their enjoyment. Known to locals as ‘The Flats’, a visit to the area is a unique cultural experience. Find an accommodation venue in the Cape Flats region of the Western Cape.

4Roomed eKasi Culture, a lifestyle concept based on the four roomed homes found in the oldest townships of South Africa. A life celebrated through great food, beautiful home decor & art, and the most inconceivable lifestyle ideas…..evoking a sense of nostalgia while promoting an inclusive hub for all who live and visit South Africa! Based on the concept of eKasi four roomed homes that were the dwellings of the black communities in areas close to the business hubs of South Africa (the cities). These four roomed carriage like houses would normally be divided into a lounge/dining room, a main bedroom, a second bedroom and a kitchen. More than one family would live in these houses and this is where Ubuntu through this unity was mostly developed and encouraged. 4ROOMED™ as a business concept will be the rebirth of Ubuntu that was once part of our daily lives, a business initiative that is intended to evoke nostalgic moments through food, style and décor of the rooms, the smells-sounds and stories that can be associated with the times when multiple families shared a four roomed house as one big union. A life to be celebrated while bringing dignity and awareness on South Africa’s diverse cultures.
