Augrabies Backpackers is the legendary base of a whole generation of river and desert adventure people. We can arrange guided half-day river rafting trips on the Lower Orange River and offer hot air-balloon rides over the Kalahari Desert. Lounge in the shade, take a dip in the rustic "splash pool" and enjoy the seasonal organic fruit. One thing is certain, one night is never enough. Accommodation is offered in 4 rooms, sleeping up to 11 guests. Laundry services are also available for guests' convenience.We are situated just 10 km from the Augrabies Falls National Park, making it an excellent base from which to explore the area. Activities include various day hikes and walks as well as a portion directly alongside the middle gorge.

Rooms are amongst the nicest I have ever had in a backpackers, even up to hotel standard. Environment is rustic, and Malcolm and Ursula went out of their way to help us around. Would definitely recommend.

Place does not look like the pictures at all! The bathrooms were freshly renovated but the rooms itself are still under construction. No wall plaster, no floors, no proper sealing (yet), the bedside table lamps don’t even have shades. Curtains broken. Dead moths and spiders on the walls.Cupboard in our room was full with stuff.
