Who We Are
Ekukhanyeni is owned and operated by Mamkhulu.org, a Christian non-government organization that provides a variety of services to orphans, vulnerable children, and youth living in rural areas of southern Africa.
In support of Mamkhulu.org, Ekukhanyeni provides programming for a variety of individuals, school and church groups that come to stay at the Ekukhanyeni Christian Retreat, Guest House & Youth Facility. Our beautifully appointed guest house provides accommodation for travellers and retreat participants. All profits go towards our community projects.
In addition to providing quality retreat services to all of our guests, our greater mission is to provide opportunities for youth from all areas of South Africa, to develop: character, resiliency, and a vision for their future. With your support of Ekukhanyeni, by making use of our facilities, this is made possible.
In addition to our charity work, Ekukanyeni is a serene residency for individuals, church groups, government groups, schools, youth organizations, Non-government organizations, and families. Our facility features:
Dormitories to house 104 + people
A guesthouse to accommodate 20 people
A dining room, hall, and lounge
A self-catering kitchen (for groups)
Training and conference rooms
A swimming pool
A lovely stone chapel
Vistas, gardens, braai areas, trails, a future bush camp and more.
Nestled at the foot of a mountain, Ekukhanyeni provides the perfect landscape for hiking, outdoor adventure activities, and environmental education. The tranquillity of our natural surroundings creates an environment where you can relax, enjoy, and be part of nature.
