The Wild Farm Backpakers
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

The staff is amazing and very friendly. The views are so good you could sit and watch the ocean for days. Everyone that visits leaves with a smile and can't wait to come again. If you travelling the garden route be sure to stay a night or five you will not be disappointed.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

The first time I went to this backapckers I threw my boyfriends 30th birthday party. The staff was so accommodating and thrilled to be apart of a celebration. Everyone had an amazing time and started a trend of us going there at least once a month. It's our home away from home, with an amazing view, incredible people, and so in touch w nature. The rooms are comfy, the bathrooms are fine, and a great view if you just want to camp. MUST stop place in the garden route.

What a magical place, we booked and the staff told us that they will have a big new years party, we were glad as we were not sure where to go over new years eve, we arrived and it was breathtakingly beautiful, the views the weather the people were al just perfect. I must say I did not expect the party to be so good, there was different dj's and live music it was awesome. Thank you wild farm for the wonderful experience. We will be back.

Amazing scenery, the little cabins were fun and the road wasn't so bad. A lot of areas in South Africa don't have tarred roads so it wasn't a big deal really for us. 4 of us stayed, it was inexpensive and watching the sunset was perfect

Camp here and you will have the most stunning views over wilderness. Unfortunately the road up to the backpackers is horrible. Loud music late into the night and very limited bathroom and kitchen facilities. Spoil what could be great backpackers.

This backpackers can be such a gem, but bad management and not caring about the business & facilities makes it awful. Dirty (actually filthy) kitchen and bathrooms, cob webs everywhere in rooms, rude managers. They really need to go on Hotel (Backpackers) Nightmares / Hell...
