Wild Lubanzi Backpackers
The Backpackers is 50% community owned – our staff are our extended family, all of them are directors of the company, and all of them make the place what it is. The Backpacker is nestled on one of the hills overlooking the beach, providing you with stunning sunrise views. It is surrounded by local village huts, people, livestock, laughter and the lovely hum of Xhosa village life.
Wild Lubanzi is a place for the young-at-heart, a place for dreamers, adventurers, travellers, or anyone who ever felt that “there must be more to life”. Here’s more. You wanna come see?
Kick off your shoes, check your Ego in at the baggage counter. Free yourself, climb into your skin, open up, be at one, breathe. Lubanzi is as “away from everything” as you can possibly be.
Enjoy delicious home cooked meals, freshly baked bread, vegetables and fruits straight out of the local gardens. Learn about alternative energy and a different way of life, off the grid, self-sustainable, close to the heartbeat of this beautiful planet.
Let yourself be carried away by the sound of the waves, blink into a marvelous sunrise from your bed, and watch the dolphins catch the perfect Lubanzi wave while sipping coffee on the deck.
For the time being, we have two Safari Tent Double Rooms, and a Homestay Dorm with 4 – 6 beds. We are still building up the new Wild Lubanzi Backpackers and photos of the new rooms/accommodation will be added here as soon as they are ready. Come stay in a lovely Safari Tent with breathtaking views and be part of the reconstruction of Wild Lubanzi!
We have two spacious Safari Tent Double Rooms, both of them sitting on a raised wooden deck, overlooking the beach and the sea. Perfect sunrise views! Toilet and shower are nearby in the main house. – R350/tent (High Season: R380)

We are off the grid, running solely on solar. At night we switch off the main lights and the place is illuminated by the soft light of paraffin lanterns.
Hot water is provided by a simple solar heating system.
There is a fully-equipped self-catering kitchen with gas stove. The organic garden provides a lot of the vegetables for our delicious home cooked meals.
We have FREE INTERNET/WiFi.
