For everybody who is interested in getting to know more about the project and the community, Kuyasa CDM is offering guided tours through Kuyasa.


Kuyasa is offering tours for individuals, school classes, conferences and workshop groups. Our guides have been working with tourists for a couple of years and have a great sense of the interests and needs of people coming as visitors to a low-income settlement. Our guides live in the area with their families and are extremely knowledgeable about the community and project. They also have a lot to share about South African and Xhosa culture.


Come and see how Carbon Finance is making a real difference to people's lives, alleviating poverty and addressing pro-poor development.

Grabeth is a professionally trained and certified South African tour guide, who has previously been working at Lingra Tours for guided tours on Table Mountain.

Zuko Ndamane has been involved in the Kuyasa CDM project right from the beginning. Since 2000 he has been advising and working for the project developer and guiding curious people through the project. If there is one person who really knows everything about the project, it is Zuko.

Our standard tour includes the screening of a 6 minute video about climate change and the projects contribution to addressing this. Visitors then move from the site office by foot on a 30 minute walk through the community. Visitors will see the technology and material used in the project and be able to watch work currently in progress on some of the homes. Visitors will be able to speak to residents of houses with completed installations, about the impact on their lives and experience Kuyasa with all its faces. After the tour there will be time allocated for questions and discussions, where cool drinks and snacks will be provided.
