Backpacking in the Eastern Cape

Eastern Cape on a Shoe-String Budget / Backpacking and Budget Travel in the Eastern Cape. Backpacking offers a great opportunity to meet and share experiences with like-minded travellers from all over the world. Over the last few years, so many hostels have opened that you can travel the length and breadth of the country staying only in backpackers hostels. From South Africa's unique backpackers bus (Baz Bus) to budget tours customised for the student traveller, South Africa is well equipped for the student or budget traveller.

Accommodation for Backpackers in the Eastern Cape / Hostels and Eastern Cape Backpackers Lodges offer excellent value for money, hospitality and a safe and friendly, laid-back environment for tourists travelling on a budget. Besides the financial "perks" of choosing a backpackers lodge, they are also a great way to meet like-minded travellers and your friendly hosts will share secrets known only to locals.

Most backpackers lodges also arrange adventure tours, group trips to the must-see attractions in their region and transport for guests, but confirm this with your chosen hostel before arrival.
