All Africa J Bay Lodge is a special place, that has a very nice vibe to it. One of the great things about it, is that it is located in the middle of town within walking distance to restaurants, clothing shops and the beach(!). When your there you should ask the awesome staff about horseback riding, surfing, the waterfall or... More

A really nice place to stay (which also had to do with the other guests of course). They organize things to do and you get a discount because you stay in their backpackers. I recommend both sand boarding as the waterfalls! Sand boarding is a lot of fun (watch out for the sun) and the waterfalls are very chilled. Also... More

J-Bay Zebra Lodge is a fantastic place to stay. It is the most beautiful place and the buildings and all disignet is so incredibly beautiful that it almost can not be described. Waking up at 5 o'clock in the morning and see that there are four zebras in the sunlight just outside the window is quite wonderful. I have at... More

Kitchen was a bit of a mess, but whatever. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the owner that came out to chat and have a... More

The place doesn't look like much on the outside, but once you're in it's a different story, and there's a lot of atmosphere. There's a hands-on quality to it, as lots seems to be self built (which I very much appreciate). The rooms are clean, atmospheric and well thought-out. It may not be a perfectly organized place, but instead it's... More

Really nice place to stay, rooms are always clean, in the kitchen you have everything you need to prepare a good meal, and you can feel like home. The owner, Tyron, is really nice person, and if you stay on sunday you can have Potjie, wich is a traditional food in SA. I would highly recomend All Africa J Bay... More

Being my first time staying in a backpacker's lodge, I was a little bit worried. This was totally unnecessary as the stay I had at All Africa J Bay Lodge turned into one of the most memorable experiences of my holiday. The rooms were tidy and clean and exceeded our expectations. Convenient stores and the beach is within walking distance... More

After an exhausting 13hour drive from durbs All Africa Lodge welcomed us with open arms and a few drinks! Reg was extremely helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the rustic showers and amazingly comfortable beds!!! Overall a relaxed place and a highlight of this surfing paradise.
