Amakaya Backpackers

We will make your stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible and help you with as much information as we can about the local activities and attractions. Here you can exchange experiences with fellow travellers, and keep in touch with family and friends. Enjoy a complimentary self-help mini breakfast, FREE wi-fi and internet facilities and FREE coffee and tea at both Amakaya Backpackers and Amakaya Backpacker Apartments.

Amakaya Backpackers is a clean, friendly and homely place where you can relax after an exhilarating day in the area. We have hot showers (electric and gas), relaxed atmosphere, comfortable beds and a good breakfast on offer. Sip on a drink at our upstairs bar while you relax on the veranda and take in the view of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, the lagoon and the sea.

For those who do not mind sharing we have a selection of standard and en-suite dorms that sleep 4, 6, 8 and 12 guests respectively.
