The view from this backpackers is absolutely breathtaking; between the ocean, the nearby hills/mountains and the nature reserve i could've easily spend my entire stay just watching around - especially sunrise and sunset are amazing. My room and the shared bathroom were clean, tidy and very functional. The staff is friendly and helpfull and is more then willing to include... More

I unexpectedly found myself in the Wilderness during my travels over the Easter peak season, unable to get a bus ticket further for 5 days. The WildFarm shuttle came and picked myself and some other traveling friends and I awoke to the most beautiful ocean view I could have imagined. My room was clean & comfortable and the staff amongst... More

My sister and I booked to stay four nights at Wildfarm and after the first we didn't go back but rather went to another backpackers in the town. Upon arrival, there was no-one there to greet us and no-one seemed to know what was going on. They were all far too excited about the trance party they were hosting that... More

The staff is amazing and very friendly. The views are so good you could sit and watch the ocean for days. Everyone that visits leaves with a smile and can't wait to come again. If you travelling the garden route be sure to stay a night or five you will not be disappointed.

The first time I went to this backapckers I threw my boyfriends 30th birthday party. The staff was so accommodating and thrilled to be apart of a celebration. Everyone had an amazing time and started a trend of us going there at least once a month. It's our home away from home, with an amazing view, incredible people, and so... More

Amazing scenery, the little cabins were fun and the road wasn't so bad. A lot of areas in South Africa don't have tarred roads so it wasn't a big deal really for us. 4 of us stayed, it was inexpensive and watching the sunset was perfect

Camp here and you will have the most stunning views over wilderness. Unfortunately the road up to the backpackers is horrible. Loud music late into the night and very limited bathroom and kitchen facilities. Spoil what could be great backpackers.

This backpackers can be such a gem, but bad management and not caring about the business & facilities makes it awful. Dirty (actually filthy) kitchen and bathrooms, cob webs everywhere in rooms, rude managers. They really need to go on Hotel (Backpackers) Nightmares / Hell...
