Afrique Du Sud Backpackers

5A St Johns Road, Sea Point, Cape Town, Western Cape


Afrique du Sud Backpackers was originally established in 1989 as St John's Lodge and is one of the longest-running backpackers in Cape Town. It's now under new management.

Afrique du Sud is the best-positioned seaside lodge in Cape Town. It nestles comfortably between the Atlantic Ocean and Lion's Head. It has the city and the Waterfront on one side and the renowned Camps Bay and Clifton beaches on the other.

All these attractions are easily accessible by buses, mini-taxis and Rikkis. The sea, promenade and an Olympic-sized seawater swimming pool are close by. Even closer are an abundance of banks, shops, supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants.
