Thank you for taking the time to check us out. We can be found just off the N2 on the Garden Route in Plettenberg Bay South Africa, we are situated 4.5km from town in the forest between an array of fragrant Fynbos on a high cliff overlooking the Roodefontein Dam and an amazing valley with an Array of views that stretches all the way to the Robberg Peninsular.

Our One of a kind hostel will take your Breath away with all its beauty and nature.

We offer volunteers accommodation, food and free internet and discounts on selected activities in Plettenberg Bay if you stay longer than a month.

Our weather:

Summer (December - February) our weather can reach up to 32 degrees so shorts and T-shirts are great to work in, but always remember to bring something warm as we can have a chilly day.

Autumn (March - May) weather temperatures can still be quite warm reaching up to 27 degrees, the evenings can start chilling down a bit

Winter (June - August) winters are not bad at all, we do have winter rain so some days can be 17 degrees or a little less and other days can reach up to 25 degrees, evenings are cold.

Spring (September - November) starts off chilly and then starts warming up between 25 - 27 degrees, still a bit chilly in the evening.

We look forward to hearing from you!
