Located in the trendy area of Emmarentia, Joburg Backpackers is the sister lodge to Cape Town Backpackers. In other words, they have been there and done it before, so you know they have everything sussed. Test their dedication from the moment you land. Yup, just put yourself in their hands. After all, they book airport pick ups and drop offs, sight-seeing in Johannesburg and tours to Soweto without even blinking an eye. Moving further afield to Pilanesberg, the Cradle of Mankind and Sun City won’t be any more of a deal. And safaris to the Kruger and car hire are a walk in the park.

When you have finished your day you can lounge around the large garden listening to the hadidas birds honking their way homewards or prep yourself for a theme night in the buzzy bar. The Johannesburg Botanical Gardens and the Emmarentia Dam are at the end of the road and regular concerts with international and local bands take place here. There are also loads of local cafés, bars and clubs within easy reach and if there’s one thing that they excel at in Egoli, it’s testing the limits of a party.

Facilities include a bar, café, Internet and Wi-Fi, travel desk, dorms, singles, doubles, triples, en-suites and family rooms. Large gardens, free off-street parking, free luggage storage, laundry service and DStv. Bazbus stop, individual room safes, 24 hour security and reception.

SunnysideUp Backpackers Centurion

Conveniently situated in Centurion West between Johannesburg and Pretoria, SunnysideUp Backpackers...
Conveniently situated in Centurion West between Johannesburg and Pretoria, SunnysideUp Backpackers offers affordable farm-style accommodation ranging from a dormitory, chalets, a family cottage, and the Main House. SunnysideUp Backpackers offers a convenient starting or ending point to your African adventure.

Many guests have told us spontaneously that the location was genuinely idyllic - a bucolic island in the thick of a huge conurbation. Indeed, about half of the 9,000 square metre plot is largely left to itself and makes up, together with the built-up area and its fruit trees, a small but lively paradise for numerous wild birds, insects, and reptiles.

The feeling is pure country, even though shopping centres with banks, restaurants and pubs are within walking distance. SunnysideUp Backpackers Centurion is ideal for people who do not like to be locked up in the midst of a metropolitan area, even for a few days.

The restaurant features live music, local fare and a congregation of assorted folk into blues and just having a good time in a small town.

The little town of Bronkhorstspruit that forms the point of a triangle with Rayton and Bapsfontein, about 50 km east of Pretoria, is a little farming community that deserves a visit for the sheer beauty of the area. It is home to the Nan Hua Buddhist Temple, the largest Buddhist temple and seminary in Africa.

Bronkhorstspruit, which began as a railway station, lies on the border between Gauteng and Mpumalanga. The Bronkhorstspruit dam is today a major attraction due to its being one of the most productive bank angling spots in the country. Thick grass line the banks of the dam, which serve as great cover for bass awaiting their bait.
