Kenan's Back Packing site!
Hiya guys, welcome to my newest addition to my site. this section is starting off small, but with a bit of luck and help, may become bigger and better! All the material I add here is from one of 2 sources. Number 1 is the Coast2Coast, the independantly published Back Packers guide, and number 2 is myself, having jst come back from a trip in SA!
Here are a bunch of links about how to get around in SA. Its a pretty rough guide, but should help out a bit!

Surf Shack, Mosselbay
This lovely BP is situated right at the beach at the Point of Mosselbay, and the builing has been declared a national Monument! Really worth the stay, but it is not for those of you used to your Upmarket stuff!!
This was without a doubt one of the best stays of my trip, causing me to stay there 3 nights in a row! Wow, what a great bunch of guys and gals. Run extremely well, and a great vibe about it! It is situated in the Town centre, and is close by to all the major hot spots. They offer a range of discounts at most restuarants, and offer a wide range of activities, to keep almost anybody happy!
Albergo, Plettenburg Bay
Also a brilliant place to stay, this BP is run by a wonderful dutch couple, who are always willing to give advice on everything and anything, and are more than happy to cart around, for a little fee! A wonderful atmosphere, and a bar, where u take now, pay later, lots of animals and a great bunch of helpers! Very close to a host of nice pubs, and eateries, as well as the beach, and a short hope to the walkers haven of Robburg!
Fairy Knowe, Wilderness
As in the words of Tina Turner: Simply the Best! and this one really is. There is really nothing about it that I can fault! There is a big pig, Clarrisa, very friendly, and the vibe can be matched nowhere else. It is comfortable, cheap, has so much character and charm, and if you get bored there, you shouldn't be back packing! If I were to give it a rating, I would honestly give it a 10 out of 10! By far the best, give it a try, you will not regret it, but you will regret having to leave when the time comes! I know I did!!!
