How Pozay works

Pozay is a service owned and operated by DragonPhenix (Pty) Ltd that connects hosts with guests. This service is accessible telephonically, over email and at (or any other websites through which DragonPhenix makes the Pozay service available).

Guests wishing to explore the diversity of cultures by meeting and dining with a Host family at their home, selects an option (e.g. South African Indians) from Pozay’s listings. Pozay matches the guest’s request with Host families in its database. Hosts are matched on, but not limited to, requested culture and availability. If a match occurs, the event is confirmed with both the Guest and the Host. At this time, the Guest is charged a fee for the event.

On the day of the visit, the Guest will arrive at the designated time. You don't have to do anything special!  The Guest is hoping to meet the real you, so relax, cook up some typical dishes, and enjoy the evening.

The Host is expected to provide at least a three course meal (starter, main course and dessert) typical of their culture. It is important to understand that the Guest is expecting to experience a typical meal with the Host family. It is unnecessary for the Host to cook an elaborate out-of-the ordinary meal. The Host should also be prepared to engage the Guest in conversation and discussion. Feel free to share your favourite game, area information or family history. The Guest expects to learn about the Host and the Host’s culture. The Host should also take the opportunity to learn about the Guest and their culture. The experience is expected to last 2-2.5 hours.

The fee, less service charges and applicable taxes, is transferred to the Host within 24 hours of the visit.
