About Bouganvillea Backpackers

Bougainvillea Backpackers is a self-catering accommodation facility in Calitzdorp and lies on the famous Route 62. We offer affordable, basic and clean accommodation for backpackers mainly but our facility is also ideal for family reunions.

We offer two double rooms, one twin room, one eight-sleeper dormitory and one six-sleeper family room. There are five bathrooms; one for every sleeping unit.

Calitzdorp is a small village in the Little Karoo, about 380 km east of Cape Town. It is also known as the Port capital of South Africa and the Port Festival takes place here annually. A fine selection of Port wines can be tasted and purchased at shops and various other outlets throughout the town. The backpackers lies within walking distance of the town centre, wine cellars and restaurants.

You can also visit various antique shops, an arts-and-crafts market and the art gallery. The location of the backpackers is such that it offers spectacular views of the mountains and surrounding country and numerous ostriches can be seen in camps around the building.
