About Black Mamba Backpackers Lodge

Black Mamba Lodge is only a stone’s throw away from some of the best diving and adventure that the South Coast has to offer. Come and embrace the natural, rustic ambience of Black Mamba where you can spend your afternoon unwinding in a hammock by the pool.

If you want a little more excitement, then our entertainment area should keep you busy. Why not have a refreshing drink at the bar, challenge someone to a free game of pool, or catch up on your emails with free Internet.

There are plenty of fun things to do when the sun goes down. Settle in with a local beer around the bon fire and share some travel stories with our friendly staff alternatively, a game of killer pool.

So how do you find us, it is as easy as hopping on the buzz bus and be dropped off on our doorstep or travel south the 41 km on the N2 from Durban to get here. It is as easy as that.

With awesome diving, surfing and the abundance of activities, you cannot find a better spot to get your adrenaline pumping. Scuba diving Aliwal and Protea Banks, shark cage diving, abseiling the Oribi Gorge and river rafting, the wild swing at Oribi Gorge, horse riding and whale watching.

I found it a home away from home. Enjoyable. Have ample facilities. A good natural ambience of mountainous and forested area at Hillcrest. Good for family occupation.

The hospitality at the Black Mamba is extraordinary. You will have to go a long long way to find such accommodating hosts. Tamanda (Teez) is a wonderful person and we had a fabulous time. Meals were good and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. I will highly recommend this little spot to anyone travelling to Durban.
