About Elalini Backpackers

Elalini Backpackers, also referred to as "The Village" is situated at Goukamma Station, close to Goukamma Nature Reserve and Buffalo Bay (surfer's paradise).

Elalini Backpackers is hidden (but can be found!) just off the N2 between Sedgefield and Knysna and offers its visitors a farmerís style village setting in the heart of nature.

Accommodation is kept rustic and simple, but cosy, to enhance the travellerís experience of a rural, peaceful elalini (place of rest). However, the vibe is lively and energetic, with fires burning at night and chattering and laughter extending into the beautiful days under African skies.
