22 September - 30 October 2019

IIn our quest to build using natural resources and recycled (salvaged) materials, we adopted the techniques that the local African folk use in home making. Whether using the traditional natural building methods of rural Africa or the shanty town techniques of recycling in the ghettos, all our buildings are built using eco principles.Please note that our rooms do not have any electrical plug points or TV facilities.  The bath & shower are outdoors and composting toilets (modern-day long-drops) are away from the rooms.

The Backpackers, as an eco-friendly sustainable project, is an experimental venture that flagships the ethos of life “off the grid”. We aim, through our methods of living and building, to be an example to both our visitors and locals, that conscious living and respect for Mother Earth is something that is mutually simple and rewarding.
