If you’re looking for an affordable, fun, eco-friendly experience close to Kruger National Park, look no further than Shik Shack Backpackers. Located just 32 km from Kruger’s Orpen Gate, we are part of a community project which is home to our international volunteers, three dogs , two donkeys and a coop full of chickens and roosters. Rustic off the grid accommodation (this means no electricity in rooms and no running water!! ) is available in compact thatched huts, or tents with shared alfresco ablutions (composting toilets and wood fire heated bucket showers under a big Maroela tree).We also offer rustic camping sites if you have your own gear. Our common area includes a food prep area/lounge (made entirely from recycled materials, and incorporating simple water saving, and recycling ideas) a fire pit and barbecue. You’ll enjoy a mountain view and star gazing at night with no interference from electric lights – here it’s all about moonlight and firelight.
If it’s luxury accommodation you’re looking for , keep looking – this isn’t it.
