Backpackers South Africa - Travel Directory

Backpackers South Africa offers you a comprehensive guide to Backpacker Lodges, Hostels, Camping sites and Activities in South Africa

Backpacking is a fun and exciting way to travel in South Africa offering a variety of accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets.  Backpackers offer an easygoing atmosphere in which you can mingle with fellow travellers, friendliness, value-for-money and more often than not an amazing experience!

Backpackers can also be found in most major tourist destinations and have the best locations. There are several Backpackers on the beach, some in the mountains and a few in remote, rural Africa. Others can be found in the heart of the cities and in its trendy districts.

Backpackers Accommodation South Africa

Each Backpackers hostel has a unique atmosphere. Travellers are well looked after with comfy shared or private rooms, kitchens, meals and travel desks.

Most Backpackers offer a variety of sleeping arrangements including dorm rooms, double rooms, twin rooms and en suite double rooms. Single rooms and family rooms are less common but some backpacker hostels can arrange them if you ask. Most hostels supply linen including sheets, pillows and a duvet or a blanket.

Camping facilities are popular in the country towns.  You’ll have to bring along your own tent and sleeping bags. Some Backpackers will rent or loan you mattresses. Most camping grounds in backpacker hostels do not have power points, but the kitchen and other facilities are made available to campers.

Getting Around

The popular way for budget travellers to get around South Africa is by either renting a car from one of our reliable car rental companies, or taking the hop-on hop-off shuttle, the Baz Bus. Your choice depends your time in South Africa and your budget.

Meals

If a place is called a ‘backpackers hostel’ or ‘backpackers lodge’, it will have a communal kitchen available for you to use. Most kitchens are very well equipped. Even the most basic have enough for you not to carry any cooking stuff other than your food.

The Braai/BBQ is very popular with Backpackers!  Almost every hostel has an outside braai/BBQ area for the use of the travellers.

Most will offer breakfast or dinner or both. Some Backpackers have a restaurant onsite with an a la carte’ menu. Backpackers in the larger cities are less likely to offer meals as there are usually restaurants nearby.

Travel Info

Most Backpackers have a travel desk where you can get information on the town and surrounds, things to do etc.  Other travel desks, especially those in the middle of the country are smaller but will still arrange your next Baz Bus trip, your stay at other backpacker hostels and local tours.
