Property Description

Welcome to LEBO’S SOWETO! We offer a unique and personal experience of Soweto. Integrated with the community around us we invite day as well as overnight guests to be part of this vibrant township. Our day guests can book one of the interactive tours by walk, bicycle or tuk-tuk as well as relaxing with a home cooked lunch or dinner in the outdoors in our community park and around the fire and boma. An overnight experience at the Backpackers Lodge offers the budget traveller a choice of accommodation – camping, dormitory and private En Suite rooms. Home cooked meals served by the fire and the opportunity to explore Soweto on their own by safely strolling around and mingling with the locals or on an organized tour conducted by local tour guides. Community volunteering, self-guided tours and free bicycle hire is also available for the curious traveller staying longer.

A truly unique, educational and profound experience, set in the significant area of Soweto, the backpackers is green and lush, quite beautiful and incredibly well organised and run. The tours are great and so interesting- and we had some fun along the way. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

I had a truly amazing time at the backpackers! It was well furnished and everyone from the staff was really kind and helpful. The guys make you discover the true Soweto which is a beautiful and really authentic area in Joburg. I highly recommend it. Thanks you guys!
