Betty's Tour - Our Social Responsibility Initiative

For the last 2yrs Cape St Francis Resort has been taking guests on a wonderful tour of local communtiy projects and businesses. These insightful excursions offer particpants the opportunity to meet everyone involved and really get to know the what, who and why's of each individual business and the people involved.


The tour known affectionately as 'Betty's Tours' as Betty Anoster from Cape St Francis Resort is the tour leader, takes you to three very different places.

Interact with local kids at a children’s school

Guests are then taken into the heart of the local township known as ’Sea Vista’ to meet some very special kids at the Talhado Children’s Haven.


Talhado Children’s Haven was started to address the needs of disadvantaged children in the area of St Francis Bay. Pre-primary education and a safe place to play, under adult care, were needed. The school now provides both for over 400 children. All the fundraising for the Haven is done on a voluntary basis.


Through ’Betty’s Tour’ you will meet these wonderful children and the teachers who care for them. The children always have a smile and song and love meeting new people and in return visitors are left with some wonderful memories and some new friends!

Meet some talented locals and maybe buy a garment or two

Just down the road from Talhado’s is Nomvula’s which is the final destination on the tour.

Nomvula (nom Voo la) meaning “she who brings the rain" in Xhosa is considered a lucky name because any sign of rain in Southern Africa is gratefully received.

Starting as a knitting group by Frances Becker in 2008, Nomvulas has quickly turned into a fully fledged business with approx 15 full time knitters.

Although Nomvulas is still a small business it has developed a strong client base which keeps the pace of work consistent and provides a sustainable income for the staff.

The concept of the company is to train the knitters in the art of manufacturing, marketing, and running a business with the goal to eventually own the business. Nomvula’s is not a charity and its goal is profit driven. What makes the company extra special is the knitters run it as their own business with the guidance and direction of  Frances. They understand that what they put in, they get out both financially and emotionally.

As part of ’Betty’s Tours’ you will be given a personal tour by one of the knitters who will provide insight into what they do and how they do it. The products produced are simply stunning and you will be spoilt for choice with the wide range of clothing and accessories.

Our port elizabeth guest house

We are situated in Newington Street, Richmond Hill on a quiet tree-lined lane, filled with historic and gracefully restored buildings. The peace of the picturesque neighbourhood belies its location in central Port Elizabeth where the heartbeat of the city pulses nearby and the main N2 highway that charters motorists in and out the Bay is but a few streets down.


The saying goes that in Port Elizabeth nothing is more than 15 minutes away and with Richmond Hill this most definitely rings true.
