  • Description


    The Backpackers is situated on an amazing property overlooking the Garden Route Lakes, the Indian Ocean and also the majestic Outeniqua Mountains. We have been in business for 10 years and provide a unique Backpacker environment for local and international travellers. Volunteers love it here and I think you can see that by the feedback we have had so far. Lots of opportunities to do all local activities and enjoy pristine nature in your off time. Please only apply if you can stay for 1 month minimum.
