We have been renovating a bit at Amakaya Backpackers and, when you next visit us, you will notice some changes! We have moved our reception and adventure booking centre inside the main backpackers and have added another dorm to the outer buildings.
As you may know, all of our dorms at Amakaya are named after local mountain passes (Bloukrans, Kaaimans) and the newest one is named Grootrivier (translated “Big River”) and the Groot River pass winds its way down into the beautiful Nature’s Valley reserve on the outskirts of Plettenberg Bay.
Our is for the traveller who likes a bit more privacy than a standard dorm would offer, sleeping six; with bunk beds, individual reading lights and a desk at which to work. Grootrivier is also en-suite with its own entrance for independent travellers.
The next time you are visiting us at Amakaya, ask about our Grootrivier dorm and our new renovations at the backpackers!
