Get Involved

Memel and Memel.Global welcome visitors who wish to connect with the community or learn more about the work of our organization. Come and stay in one of the guest houses and enjoy this corner of the Drakensberg mountains. Or volunteer your skills and time to work on one of our programs. Perhaps you’d even like to invest in the community by starting a new enterprise or building a vacation home. We can help guide you in the full range of activities that can help us help Memel. Memel makes a great jumping off point for international visitors on South African vacations.
