Property Description

Welcome to Sensayuma luxury backpackers. With a 180 eagles eye view of the mighty Tugela river and the Indian ocean. Sensayuma is truly a Zululand’s best-kept secret gem. Most likely though your going to want to do the big chill. Head for the beach bar to order a cocktail or two. You can wiggle your toes in beach sand while you wait. Then find a spot at one of the pools to chillax. With two pools to choose from you won't have to arm wrestle for space. As night falls Sensayuma comes to life. The friendly crew loves a good jol, grab a few drinks before you fade into your comfy rooms and dream the night away.

We have heaps of space with a huge open plan communal kitchen, lounge, dining area, library room, bar area, braai areas, various decks and big garden with lots of chill spots, and two pools. A separate hot water ablution facility and outdoor kitchen is available for campers.

Sensayuma Backpackers is situated right at the mouth of the mighty Tugela river where the river meats the Indian Ocean in a small coastal town called Tugela mouth. Wake up with the sun and stroll out our gate onto the beach. Wander the untouched beaches and river mouth or grab a paddle ski to kick start your morning with a paddle up the gorgeous river. Fishermen and women can cast off to their hearts content, as the fishing is great all year round.

Sensayuma is a luxury backpackers and we are striving to give you the ultimate backpacking experience possible with spacious, comfortable and clean rooms. All of our rooms and Dorms have en-suite bathrooms with piping hot high-pressure showers and fans to keep you cool.
We also offer tents which are located in the garden, for example a Tee Pee tent which is very comfortable equipped.

Lovely place with stunning views over the estuary. Didn't like the morning messages left in the house by the pets, though!
