About Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers

Set in the scenic Waterberg Mountains lies the small Bushveld town of Modimolle (previously named Nylstroom). The Sotho name Modimolle refers to the mountain, meaning the ‘God(s) have eaten.’ This tree-rich area is well known for its hiking trails, big game, outdoor adventure activities and birding. The bustling town of Modimolle boasts several historic venues and monuments for those who enjoy South Africa’s rich heritage. Here, in the heart of the Bushveld, is Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers, just four kilometers outside the town on the popular R101.


What distinguishes Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers from other overnight accommodation establishments in the area is its ideal Bushveld location in the Waterberg Mountains. Guests are able to stroll among the trees and small ‘koppies’ (hills) in the bush surrounding the hotel. Driving up a short gravel road to the hotel, grazing cattle and beautiful trees provide a rural ambience. Modimolle Funky Stay comprises three A-frame buildings that house its 14 rooms. These overlook a tranquil pond set in the Bushveld surrounding the hotel.

Decorated in cheerful chic style with rustic screed flooring, colourful South African furnishings and decor liven up the interiors. Most of the rooms have twin beds that can be pushed together to create double beds. There are also three single rooms. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom with modern shower, washbasin and toilet. Vibrant colours are cheekily displayed in the wall paintings, scatter cushions, ottoman and throws that adorn the furniture. Modimolle Funky Stay’s hotel rooms are all non-smoking.


Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers is aimed primarily at providing no-frills accommodation for those looking for an affordable base or overnight stop. In addition, barbeque enthusiasts can enjoy making their favourite meal in the barbeque area. Other facilities include free onsite guest parking and a farm pool to cool down in summer.
