Hi there! This is a beautiful, popular, alternative, eco-friendly backpackers that overlooks the stunning Tsitsikamma nature reserve on the Garden Route of South Africa. Only 8km from Natures Valley beach and lagoon, our farm is surrounded by natural forests, wildlife, peace and quiet. We have a private waterfall in the forest just below our vibey tree-house bar, and a constant flow of interesting, adventurous, passionate and conscious travellers passing by every single day.

We run our hostel on an ‘energy-trade’ system. This means that travellers who would like to be with us for a longer period can stay on and help us run the backpackers in a variety of different ways in exchange for their food and lodging. We encourage a stay of 1 month or longer, but can make exceptions where possible for shorter time-frames.
We are particularly interested in people with experience or interest in the hospitality industry (reception, bar, cooking), alternative energy, organic gardening and carpentry. However, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have other skills to offer which you think will benefit the space (ie: yoga classes, art, general maintenance, etc).

If you are reliable, enthusiastic, enjoy being sociable and will respect our ethos (environmentally friendly, community living, respecting all people and animals, but also up for a party every now and then) then we want to hear from you!
We welcome you to get in touch with us and possibly come and join our loving extended family of smiling open-minded people, happy animals and curious adventurers :)

We look forward to hearing from you!
Love from Ola and the team
