From the humble beginning of a couch or an extra bed, Backpackers have grown beyond all expectations in quality and service. From a rural home-stay to a 5 star Backpackers lodge, it's all there. This dotted network of accommodation providers allows our travelers to experience all parts of the country, to explore freely, knowing that there is always a bed and a network of people at their service. A family has been created since the inception of Backpackers in South Africa. We form a route of like-minded individuals who have supported each other and grown with one another. The Backpackers are a solid core of integrity, of social and environmental involvement that stands as a beacon in the tourism industry. We are inspired by having our guests visit us during some of the most crucial and exciting times in their lives. They give us youth! We are a part of the larger tapestry of youth tourism members who have crafted South Africa into one of the most amazing destinations in the world.
