Buccaneers Lodge & Backpackers

Buccaneers has been described as being like a backpackers village because of the way it's spread out over the 8 hct of wild coastal forest right next to the stunning Chintsa beach. Buccs is a home away from home for people just like you - travellers from all over the world. A legend in it's own time.

We offer choices.......
There's a lovely lively bar which has certainly seen some great revelry in its time. Our stunning tropical pool is a buzzy spot in the summer months when a gorgeous poolside cafe offers decidedly decadent refreshments (including divine pizzas!). And every day we have some sort of free activity so you can chill and meet the rest of the gang. Buccaneers is also a haven of tranquility and natural delights - quiet beach walks or canoe trips up the Chintsa river and a secret bird hide on our own dam.

Buccaneers is what it is because we love what we do. We relish the laid back friendly style, the fact that only first names count and the sense that we're all kindred spirits.

A gem on the Wild Coast of South Africa, Buccaneers Backpackers has something for everyone - budget and luxury accommodation, adventure and relaxation. Come, stay, leave your heart in Africa.

Buccs is truly one of those places where Fair Trade is evident in their staff body and community outreach projects. Everyone is always smiling, always so willing to help you out. What is also very refreshing is that the staff take pride in having you in their place of work, and given half the chance - will treat you like family. Definitely a place I will rave about for many years to come, and will hopefully return to with my friends and family in the near AND far future. (-thesweepingswallow.blogspot.co.za)

“Most travellers will have undoubtedly heard of Buccaneers long before they make it to Cintsa. Many consider it the best backpackers in South Africa”
