Being hikers, we're used to roughing it but the Backpackers Lodge at Fairy Knowe was appalling. It's run by a father and son combo and they obviously need a woman around to organise the chaos. There were FAR too many campers for the facilities, so the kitchen fridges were over flowing, we had to queue for ablutions and toilets, and campers even put their tents in the parking lots. Although the braai area under millkwoods was appealing, there were only two small braai places which we also had to queue for because no fires were allowed outside the designated area. A beautiful setting but completely spoiled by the owners trying to make a quick buck. Never again.
