Travel Tips

I’m a South African who loves to travel around Southern Africa and backpacking has been my favourite way to do it since I was a “lightie” (South African slang for young boy). Owning a backpackers has given me the opportunity to chat with the coolest travellers from all over the world and answer some of the common questions that get asked. You are welcome to pop us a mail and let us know if you have any further questions, our motto has always been: Ask Us Anything!

Tours & Safaris

With so much to see and do in South Africa you wouldn’t want to waste your time staring into space.

Our most popular day tour is definitely to Pilansberg National Park, but as we are involved with all the best operators, we can organise just about anything for you.

Car Hire

Because we book so many cars (a great way to see South Africa) we can get the best rates from the big guys, particularly when booking for an extended period.

Something that is also great traveling via overland vehicles and camper vans, so feel free to chat to us about that as well.
