About African Ubuntu Backpackers Lodge

African Ubuntu is ideally situated in Jeffrey’s Bay, across the road from the beach with access to one of the world’s most famous breaks.

A relatively small backpackers there is always plenty of space to do your own thing with many places to relax and read a book, just plain old chill or have a laugh while watching our ducks waddle around the garden.

For this reason, along with our friendly and helpful staff, we are well known as a home away from home and more importantly, a clean home with many guests hanging around for longer than they expected.

We do get our party on now and again and either hang at the lodge playing pool and table tennis or we head out to one of the many happening pubs and restaurants and try our hardest to paint the town red. The more chilled at heart can curl up in front of the bonfire while reading a book, watch a movie in the lounge on the big screen, or gaze at the stars from one of our balconies.

We make delicious home-cooked meals most nights and every Friday we cook a traditional meal for our guests to try out some of the local cuisine. Think braais, potjies, salads from our vegetable garden, vegetarian dishes and much more.

So if you are looking for refreshing accommodation, one where you can put your feet up and no one will gasp at your sandy feet, you have arrived at the ideal accommodation with the best swell and hosts in town.

                      The set up of the establishment was so cool, friendly and laid back with the true sense of ubuntu vibe. Wonderfull meeting so many different people from all over the world.A focus on the finer details of general cleanliness could make a big difference and maybe a small ice machine or freezer could be nice to have.

                      + atmosphere (good vibes)+ close to beach and supermarket- whole place is sticky- kitchen equipment is lousy- too many incense sticks

                      Great spot, great vibe, awesome waves. Was simple, the staff were excellent and the morning spent surfing was a personal highlight.
