It gives us great pleasure to announce Kudzai, as our well deserved “Crew Member of the Month” for July 2016!

Kudzai has been a crucial member of the never@home crew since our story began in Cape Town, September 2014.

From the get go Kudzai has shown great potential and over the past two years has grown from a Receptionist to Night Manager and is now our cheery Reception Supervisor.

Kudzai is a real team player and one of the most friendly, reliable and trustworthy members of our team. He always goes above and beyond, ensuring that our awesome guests are well looked after. So when YOU see Kudzai around the hostel – be sure to say HOWZIT (South African for hello)!

Congratulations once again Kudzai for being the worthy winner – we hope that you enjoy your holiday (although we are missing you already…so get back soon please!).

We think it’s only right that you guys get to know Kudzai a little more, so we asked him a few questions about himself and his time in Cape Town and this was his response…..

1) What encouraged you to travel to Cape Town for the first time?
I was actually destined for Jo’burg but my cousins who were in Cape Town asked me to visit them. Luckily it was the beginning of summer and I enjoyed the first week then I decided to stay (without my parents approval). It took my father a trip down to the Cape for him to approve my move.

2) How did you find out about never@home?
Just after i had resigned with immediate effect from Dolphin Beach as a Night Auditor I started Job hunting (again). I went online and came across a driving position at never@home which I then applied for – this was the beginning of my never@home journey.

3) What are your top 3 things to do in Cape Town?
Shark Diving, Helicopter tour from Waterfront to Cape point­ best view of Cape Town by any standard and lastly will be the Township experience.

4) What is your favourite dish at the Randy?
I absolutely love the Randy’s Mac and Cheese!

5) Aside from the Randy Warthog (of course), where else do you like to eat and/or drink in Cape Town?
Asoka, Bar and Lounge as it combines the best of both worlds

6) If you were a cartoon character who would you be? And why?
Simba the Lion, for obvious reasons!

7) If you could only take one item on holiday with you, what would it be?
My cellphone as it keeps me in touch with the world

8) Besides Cape Town where is your next favourite place to visit in Africa?
Victoria Falls(The smoke that thunders)­ Zimbabwean side just to go the Gorge over and over again and again!!!!

Stay tuned for who will win crew member of the month for the month of August – it’s already looking like a great month. And, if if anyone has left a positive impact on you during your stay at never@home, we would love to hear about it – get in touch and your recommendation might even WIN!
