Khululeka Backpackers Lodge
Reviewed 14 February 2014

The service at Khululeka was exceptional and our family always looked forward to the breakfast every morning. Since we were a family of four we had a nice cozy family room. Good and nice quiet location but the scenery around was majestic. I doubt whether we would have enjoyed our stay in KZN had it not been for the experience at Khululeka. It really felt like home.

Was my first back packers experience and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff and manager is very helpful and friendly and they make you feel at home. Great environment and the breakfast was also amazing. I am so glad we decided to extend our trip with Khululeka, it made it so much better.

Room Tip: all rooms are nice and comfortable

Hello Anel
It is 7 months since you posted our first review on TripAdvisor.
Thank you!

Why not arrange a short get-away?
Khululeka Lodge & Backpackers is the perfect place to get away from the NW province winter.
Hope to see you back here one day soon.
