Just genuine African bush living


Set amongst big shady trees in a peaceful rural setting, Thobeka Backpackers epitomises simplicity where there are no frills just genuine African bush living.

Providing self-catering accommodation and camping in true African style, we offer twin rooms, double rooms, dormitories and family rooms.


Each room is separated by a rustic wooden walkway allowing you the privacy and space to kick back and enjoy uninterrupted relaxation time and includes comfortable beds, mosquito nets and a fan for those warm lazy afternoons and balmy African evenings.  Our self-catering kitchen is well-stocked with cooking utensils, crockery and fridges as well as tea, coffee and sugar.


We provide hot showers and toilets as well as a laundry service at a small fee so you can put on some clean clothing after enjoying a hot revitalising shower.


The bar is as it should be ~ packed with cold beers and sofas and a hammock or two so you can kick back and enjoy. Beside the bar is our swimming pool should you wish to take a dip and cool off, not far from yet another cold beer.


Our braai area is located next to the pool and about three steps from the bar so you can braai, take a dip in the pool, a swig of your beer and embrace the freedom that Thobeka offers you.


Thobeka supplies braai packs consisting of 300 gm rump steak, boerwors (sausage), and fresh vegetables or and freshly caught fish from the fish traps (1 days notice required)

Evenings at Thobeka Backpackers are reliant upon what you wish to experience.


You could either sit around the fire, dance around the fire, beat your African drum, tell stories, have a kitchen party or relax and gaze at the twinkling African night sky and listen to the sound of nature.


Local amenities are in close proximity to our African bush lodge where you can purchase food products, local fruit and vegetables and African souvenirs to take home with you to your family and friends before your return to Africa. A Petrol station, Pharmacy and ATM are also in the vicinity.

Our staff, born and raised in the village, have a wealth of knowledge and experience of Zulu culture, history and the local village itself and will shower you with African hospitality that is teeming with the richness of the Mother Land providing you with an all-round authentic African experience!
