Welcome to Afrique du Sud Backpackers, Cape Town, South Africa

Afrique du Sud Backpackers was originally established in 1989 and is one of the longest-running backpackers in Cape Town.

Under new management from April 2015 we now offer a lot more than before!

Our Location

Afrique du Sud is the best-positioned Atlantic sea board seaside lodge in Cape Town. It nestles comfortably between the Atlantic Ocean and Lion’s Head and is close to the city and the Waterfront on one side and the blue flag beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton on the other.

All these attractions are easily accessible by buses, mini-taxi and MyCiTi busses. An Olympic-sized seawater swimming pool and an abundance of banks, shops, supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants are in close proximity.

Description: 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. Wi-Fi is available too. You will always find a peaceful spot to chill out after a hectic day or night out on the town. The self catering kitchen is big enough for everyone to cook.
