Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers
Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers offering comfortable overnight accommodation on the very popular R101 that leads from Pretoria all the way to Polokwane, lies the newest edition named Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers. The R101 also passes South of Africa’s other Limpopo properties – hence discerning travellers can pick and choose to visit any of the other fine properties for supper, afternoon tea or a stroll through the beautiful Waterberg landscape.

Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers offers exactly what the name suggests – funky overnight accommodation. The interiors of these “ultra cool” rooms are bright and colourful and has a fresh new take on giving guests a unique experience.

Accommodation at Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers
The unique rooms of Modimolle Funky Stay Backpackers offers guests all the small comforts that makes a night away from home feel like a treat. The rooms are located in A-frame cabins that fit in perfectly with the surrounding bushveld. The beautiful pond, that lies waiting upon arrival, is an attractive feature that attracts the prolific birdlife of the Nylsvley wetlands. The proudly South African touch is brought to life by the multitude of colours, displayed not only in the paintings on the walls, but also in the choice of scatter cushions, throws and ottoman found in the room.

Select DSTV channels are available on a flat screen television that is conveniently located facing the bed. The two twin beds can also be separated, with the furniture easily moved apart to still showcase the classy touch of South of Africa. En suite bathrooms offer a modern shower, elegant wash basin and toilet. There is also ample cupboard space with an open closet snugly fit into the cabins’ unique A-frame build.

The property’s ideal location is what sets it apart from other accommodation establishments in the area. For a true bushveld experience, guests need only look to the surrounding bushes, trees and shrubs that form the lovely Waterberg landscape. The area is also well known for its hiking trails, big game, hunting, adventure activities and more. For those who enjoy South Africa’s heritage, the several monuments and historic venues in town are must-do experiences. There is never a dull moment for anybody visiting Modimolle.

    Modimolle Funky Stay offers conference facilities for groups of up to 30 delegates. The brand new conference hall is located on the first floor of one of the Funky Cabins. The conference room is fully equipped with standard equipment, and also offers a variety of other sought after equipment that can be hired in for your event. The bright and colourful bean bags are for those who see conferencing as a team building activity – and what a better way to get the role players of your business together than in a circle as though sitting around a camp fire and sharing stories. With the large grounds, there is ample space for any team building activities you might wish to have.

    Modimolle Funky Stay also offers a Funky Restaurant! The beautiful interiors on the first floor of one of the Funky Cabins have a relaxing atmosphere that has a front view of the calming pond. The Restaurant caters to groups and conferences and can serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as requested. The Restaurant can also be used to cater for your own functions, and is a fantastic venue for small gatherings of friends and family.

    Things to do
    Modimolle Funky Stay is not just a comfortable overnight stop, but is also set in the midst of an abundance of activities for the adventurous. Everything is within a 20 minute drive’s radius – from zip-lining, horse riding and walking trails, to an array of great eateries, the Big 5 and cultural experiences.

    Lurking in the distance is Kranskop, the majestic feature of the N1 highway on route to Kruger Natural Park and the capital of the province, Polokwane. The name Modimolle is also the Northern Sotho name for the mountain, meaning the “God(s) have eaten”. Sounds interesting, doesn't it! There is a lot of history in the area - come and discover it all. The Nylsvley nature reserve is definitely at the top of our list of things to do!

    Don't hesitate to enquire about directions to all these activities. Modimolle town, a mere 4km drive from Modimolle Funky Stay, offers a variety of well known restaurants, banks, shops and much more.
