Colorful rooms and dorms, and hosts that understand hospitality. This is what you can expect at Hodge Podge Backpackers Lodge.

We are nestled agains the Magalies Mountain Range, bordering the local Nature Reserve. The view of the mountain is SPECTACULAR! Here you can simply relax and take in the aroma of the roses.

The garden is full of wild birds and amazing trees of all kinds. A great place for people who want to get together in a group. We can accommodate up to 45 people.

We have a very unique bar in the communal lappa called the Middle Of The Road Taste. A bit of old and new as well as the comfort of Rhodesian Teak tables with directors chairs. There are numerous table games to play, including poker and pool tables to keep you entertained.

A great swimming pool to keep you cool on warm days and nights.

Walk up the hiking trail to what will seem like the top of the world. The views from the top of the mountain is spectacular. This is a backpacker`s paradise. You will definitely come back for more.

Great atmosphere, friendly hosts, and cabins good except they need a heater during the winter. Also, guests should be warned ahead of time that towels are not provided.
