Kruger Park

Kruger Park is an absolute must for anyone visiting South Africa. We have partnered with Selous Safaris and are the main pick up and drop off point in Pretoria, with tours departing every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday right from our doorstep.

Camping safaris are only R8000 for 3 nights and 4 days of awesomeness including meals, game drives, transport and tents (they even put them up for you) as well as a trip to Blyde River canyon and Moholoholo Wildlife rehabilitation centre.

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.
