We spent 3 lovely nights at Tsitsikamma backpackers in a family room. Staff were really welcoming and our 8 year old son enjoyed many games of table-football with new African-inspired victory dances ! The kayak and Lilo experience was extraordinary as was our hike ( and swim) at the waterfall. Come and enjoy it for yourselves

We "glamped" in the garden - although it was raining, the tents were warm, dry and cosy. The staff at the backpacker's couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, everything was clean and well organised, the optional breakfast was great value, and there are loads of interesting people staying over to chat to

I enjoyed my stay at the backpackers and I'd return at any given time. It was clean and the service was excellent. I enjoyed their affordable breakfast and supper was delicious, how could I forget the chicken.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed the place. Not only they can organize every activity you wish to do in the area, from segway to bungee jump, but also the staff is incredibly friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. And their bar is really fun, with a lot of games like pool and darts....

Me and my husband decided to do the "backpacker - thing". What a surprising experience! From the moment we step in there the staff was super friendly and helpful.
