Property Description

Elundini Backpackers is an eco-friendly hostel.

Our dormitory and both of our private rooms are each situated in traditionally built rondavels. We have a six bed dormitory in the red room, a double bed and two singles in our orange room, and the green room has two double beds. Toilets and showers are located in a communal sanitary block. We use environmentally conscious compost toilets; all waste water is recycled and rain water is harvested from the roof and stored in tanks so nothing goes to waste. Our electricity is provided completely by solar power which also warms water from the geysir.

We have self-catering facilities, but don't hesitate to join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our kitchen staff will introduce you to Xhosa cuisine with a twist.

During the day enjoy activities organised by the local Xhosa people and support 100% locally owned businesses simultaneously. Jump on that horse, hike the trail to Hogsback, learn how to make Xhosa bread, and so much more!

At the end of the day, grab yourself a 75 ml beer from the bar, sit around the fire and gaze at the galaxy of stars. Local is lekker!!!

    Amazing place to be. The road to get there is a little bit bumpy, but our car didn't have any problems with it. We learned a lot about khosa culture, had a delicious home cooked dinner. Can really recommend the guided tour through the village which is great value for the money.

    If you want a gentle introduction to staying in a rural Xhosa village, this is ideal. The rondavels are gorgeous, clean, and lit by kerosene and solar lamps. The main house with electricity and self catering facilities is a few meters away, as are composting toilets and hot showers. Bread making, local dinners, Xhosa lessons, and amazing hikes are readily available. This is a place for getting away and the road there is bumpy so be prepared to stay for a few days. Incredibly welcoming!

    Wow! Amazing expirience! Came with our kids, spent two nights, and the kids didn't want to leave... We will remember it fotever. The lodge is the place for the local kids to play at the afternoon. You get a true xhosa expirience that you can't get anywhere else. Thanks to Leive, Elliot, Lucas and Elena for a great time!

    Elliot and Lieve are a lovely couple and they seem to be doing a great job for the small village of Elundini. The place is not a regular backpackers but will give you a nice look at what an African village is. Maybe not the best for a solo traveller in low season but def a good and different experience to a regular backpackers. Lovely surroundings and nice activities to either hike, learn Xhosa or do a mountainbike trip.
