It wasn't my first time travelling to this gem of a backpackers. The garden route is a place that's very special to me and its always great to come back here. Thanks to it being located right on top of Wilderness heights, the view of this special place is something else. There are few better pleasures in life than drinking... More

Could be little more friendly and breakfast was a joke, everyone was trying to grab food at the same time. If they prepared before hand it would have made a big difference. The entertainment area wasn't always accessible.

Amazing views to the Map of Africa and the other flying places along the coast, so you can see where it is flyable before leaving. Nice and helpful staff from all over the world telling you what to do if the weather conditions are not ideal for paragliding. I am sure I will come back!

Very nice back packers. AWESOME location and view. Linen was new and clean, beds were comfy. Would have appreciated a box under the beds to keep valuables, but otherwise it was great. Also, maybe have a few more signs along the way.

This was my second stay at Wildfarm, so I knew what to expect. It's a budget facility, and you get what you pay for. You meet interesting people, and if you don't mind the poor bathroom facilities, it's a cheap way to have a paragliding holiday. Views are beautiful, and the common area is comfortable. I honestly did not mind... More

Riaan B, Manager at The Wild Farm Backpakers, responded to this review

I am terribly sorry that you had such an experience here. To my knowledge what happened was that you booked in with us for 3 nights and on the morning of your last night you came to pay and cancelled the last night as it was too noisy for you. Then you went paragliding and only returned at around 7pm... More

Are you looking for good quality, affordable accommodation in the Wilderness area, Wild Farm should be your destination. Be it camping, bunk house, or cabin; the staff are great, the views spectacular, and you can enjoy communal evening food at comfortable prices with a bar service. I go every year and already looking forward to 2017
