BOMVU BACKPACKERS is known as the Africa’s most individualistic community for backpackers. We are situated amidst a gorgeous tropical terrain at the mouth of the untouched Bomvu river overseeing the Indian ocean.
We aim to be a genuine campers and backpackers paradise. Running as a serene hostel, our accommodations attract backpackers from far and wide corners of the globe not due to the rural charm but due to hospitality of the Xhosa tribal people who partake in the things you choose do, such as drum playing, drum making, break making, cultural dancing, and beadwork workshops.
This is what our service aims. However, it is also what our tribal community who are smart backpackers in their own right, aims. They act as local guides to accompany you on trekking, surfing, or near horseback to some truly memorable coastal destinations, including sacred pools.
The entire Wild Coast is immaculate; thanks to these tribal people who have made this place worth living with peace and thrill. Together with them, we also arrange for parties featuring drummers and fire dancers showing their talent on diverse African rhythms. We also run yoga classes in our studio to give you that blissful experience, which is essential in today’s hectic life. Our on-site surf school gives surfing lessons and guarantees no crowds and great wave.
They all come from the Xhosa tribal people, who are truly the heart of the nation. Our vision to make one’s journey blissful and yet thrilling along the untouched wild coastline gets fulfilled by the values of hospitality, integrity, transparency, and coordination.
Small to Big Accommodations
I had come here for the first time as a backpacker. Well, this is surely not going to be the last one. The Bomvu ambiance is just amazing. Although ruralistic, it was culturally sophisticated and naturally thrilling.
I am surely looking forward for my next trip to this place. Not only I but my new backpacker friends also wish to come here after hearing the thrilling experiences from me. For me, the most enjoyable activity was surfing, which a tribal guide taught me brilliantly.
The most captivating activity here is to hike up to the peak from where the beach, accommodations, lush foliage, and rock formations look so amazing. Seriously, I did not feel that I am in Africa but in America!
