City Life Escape

When you need an affordable break away from the stress and pressures of life in the city, Augrabies Backpackersis exactly what you need. Situated on a quiet little farm in Augrabies overlooking vineyards on the banks of the Orange River and the rocky mountains of Namibia, you get to experience the tranquility and serenity of a simpler, slower-paced life, where you can actually see stars and the Southern Cross in the night sky. Our lush green lawns around the pool and the simple beauty of our teff fields are a camper’s delight. Don’t have a tent or caravan? No worries – rent a tent from us. We also just reopened our first double room and are working on bringing you more accommodation options. 

Have a braai at the boma under a 350 year old Camel Thorn Tree, fetch eggs for your breakfast from the chicken coop, pick your own tomatoes and other in season fruits and vegetables for your salads and other meals, taste our delicious goats milk yoghurt, cheeses and butter or try your hand at milking a goat! Take a dip in the pool, go on hikes, go river rafting or on a fishing trip, go birdwatching, go for a sunset cruise on a river barge, visit the spectacular Augrabies National Falls and our national parks, take a morning or night game drive… You will run out of time before you run out of things to do in this little piece of paradise that we call home.


Available 24/7

Izelle and Jenni were very welcoming and accommodating after a long day of driving and gave us a great farm experience – we really enjoyed their delicious fresh produce which lasted days after we left. They were also amazing with advice on where to go around Augrabies and we loved their beautiful pool after a day out. Their place was a great central home base with plenty if activities in the area. We will always have very fond memories of our stay at Augrabies Backpackers over Dec 2020.  Thank you Izelle and Jenni.

Augrabies Backpackers is a real hidden treasure between green Plantages. We enjoyed watching sunsets/-rises and relaxed on the little organic farm, while the dogs, geeses, cats etc.jumped around us and the very helpful, pleasant and powerful owners worked in the beautiful garden. We were even allowed to milk the 2 goats!;-) highly recommended

This is one place that I absolutely can recommend. This place is unique, as it is not your typical flashy city backpackers hostel. From the moment you arrive, you are being welcomed warmly by genuine friendly people. The owners goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and will not hesitate to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I have been to many backpackers foreign and domestic, and can honestly say that here you will not find at the reception desk somebody that just stare at you. Here you are being greeted and even helped setting up camp, should you wish to stay in a tent. This is a working farm, you will find various animals as well as vegetable gardens. In season, you may be able to have some of the freshest products available. Other farm fresh items eg. milk and eggs and their products like yoghurt and ice cream may also be available. For families, this place will keep kids entertained easily. Located close to the Augrabies waterfalls, it is a great spot to discover also other hidden treasures of this area. Quick layout of the establishment, there is rooms, laundry facility, ample of grass under trees for camping, big area for fire and braai (BBQ), swimming pool and food can be prepared upon request for visitors as well. I myself will most definitely return and stay here again.

A pleasant place to spend the night and lots in the area to see and do. A hostess who does not mind going the extra mile to make your stay comfortable and convenient. Thank you for the ice in the ice hockey, 5l bottle of ice cold water already in the fridge and nice grapes to make you feel welcome. The room has everything one needs and if you do not feel like driving for entertainment there is about a zoo with a large variety of animals on site to view and a swimming pool to dive in if the heat leaves you melt.
