We've stayed at Rocky Road twice now and will certainly be back again. The setting, the tents, the atmosphere & vibe and most importantly, the people (and pets!) make for a most welcoming place. Friday night hot tub night is awesome! The food - delicious. Thanks for great memories Rocky, Marieks, Mack, Pete, Alex, Cam, Brodin and all the other amazing people who pass through every day.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with family

We have been there for 2 nights and we really enjoined our staying there.
The place has everything.
But the imported part is the staff which are very kind and helpful.
Especially Mack which helped us a lot.
Thank you,we hope we will come back sometime.

Me and my husband arrived here having booked 2 nights in the luxurious tent accommodation.. And ended up staying for a month! After reading the reviews on trip advisor we thought they were definitely too good to be true, but apparently not! The great hikes, lovely home made dinners, and immediate at-home feel about the place has made Rocky Road our favourite part of South Africa so far. We will definitely be back. Thanks Rocky and clan!!

Room Tip: Go shopping beforehand! Although there are often people travelling to Plett

I spent over 6 weeks here and i loved it! The outdoor shower is fun and different. The place feels like home. One of my favorite things to do was just sitting around the fire and talking to all the different people who pasted through. Each day dinner was something different and i loved it all! The staff is so helpful and passionate about the work they do <3 The place is beautiful with a view of the mountains and there is plenty of space to relax or have some fun. The hot tube is just one example of fun you can have. If i am ever back in South Africa i will be coming back to Rocky Road Backpackers, if you don't stay here you are missing out on an amazing experience.
