About African Array Backpackers Lodge

African Array Backpackers Lodge is nestled between a biometry of fynbos on a high cliff overlooking a beautiful valley with spectacular mountain and ocean views. Relax on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view while watching the fish eagles dive into the Roodfontein Dam.

The sunsets and sunrises are not to be missed while staying at African Array; you feel like you are miles from civilization even though town is close by. Laze in the hammocks scattered around the garden under trees and hidden from everyone else, so you can have a nice relaxed time without being bugged. We offer free Wi-Fi on the whole property. For those guests who don't have their own laptop or smart phone, we have a terminal in the reception you are welcome to use.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be ordered off a menu at the bar and the beers are always cold. We will serve traditional meals at night and must be ordered before 4 pm that day to provide good food at a reasonable time. Should you like to cater for yourself, we have a fully equipped kitchen making it easy and comfortable.

Activities at African Array include bungee jumping from the highest bridge in the Southern Hemisphere, swim with seals, dive with sharks, skydive over one of the world's most beautiful drop zones, sea kayaking or rent a boat and picnic on the side of the Keurbooms River and hiking. Go horse riding in a game reserve or visit one of the many world-renowned animal sanctuaries.

Exceeded our expectations by far. The place was squeaky clean and the rooms and views were amazing. Our hosts Matthew and Vicky are lovely people and the food they prepare for their guests is five star quality. We will definitely be back.
