The brainchild of award-winning artist Bongani Mathebula, Portion 85 is best described as an agri-tourism experience, and judging by its growing popularity, is a good indication of where the future of educational tourism is going. Here guests are given the opportunity to experience getting their hands dirty around a working farm, while still being able to enjoy a taste of the best local produce and cuisine on offer.
Comprising a multicultural precinct, Portion 85 forms part of Farm 385 in Knopjeslaagte in Centurion, Gauteng specialising in the mixed farming of livestock, poultry, and crops. And in addition to accommodating day visitors, it also offers educational tourism catering to schools, seminar vacations, and self-enhancement vacations where people can take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life all while learning new skills. Besides promoting local job creation, Bongani’s passion for education sees him providing much needed business development support through the supply of starter packs to aspiring entrepreneurs.
