Elalini Backpackers and B&B
Elalini Backpackers, also referred to as “The Village” is situated at Goukamma Station, close to Goukamma Nature Reserve and Buffalo Bay (surfer’s paradise). It is hidden (but can be found) just off the N2 between Sedgefield and Knysna. It offers its visitors a farmer’s style village setting in the heart of nature.

Accommodation is kept rustic and simple, but cosy, to enhance the traveler’s experience of a rural, peaceful elalini (place of rest). However, the vibe is lively and energetic, with fires burning at night and chattering and laughter extending into the beautiful days under African skies.

The Rustic Tracks Coffee Shop/Diner form an integral part of Elalini, with beautiful views of the rusty train tracks where the Outeniqua Choo Choo used to operate in breathtaking surroundings.

Tucked against a forested hillside is a Mexican-inspired Cantina that’s just the place to relax on the deck, sip on a refreshing drink or a localy brewd beer and enjoy an authentic meal or any meal of your choice from the extensive menu.

Consists of 5 houses arranged in a circle, hence the name “The Village”.
