Afrique du Sud Backpackers


Afrique du Sud is the best-positioned seaside lodge in Cape Town. It nestles comfortably between the Atlantic Ocean and Lion's Head. It has the city and the Waterfront on side side and the renowned Camps Bay and Clifton beaches on the other. All these attractions are easily accessible by buses, mini-taxis and Rikkis. The sea, promenade and an Olympic-sized seawater swimming pool are close by. Even closer are an abundance of banks, shops, supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Those staying at Afrique du Sud love its friendly, family feeling. Once you have stayed here, you become part of the family – it's really a great feeling. There is a small, cozy bar, a barbeque, two balconies and 2 lounges. You will always find a peaceful spot to chill out after a hectic day or night out on the town. Dorm beds, single, double and economy double rooms are available at backpacker prices.
