Mufasa Backpackers
Ranked #6 of 18 Specialty Lodging in Benoni
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights (one before the safari and 2 after) and also did the Kruger Safari with the owners Juan, Toini and their friend Tommy who was our driver. We had so much fun. These people are great, friendly, helpful and plain fun. We traveled with our children and the safari was fully catered to our needs. It was also well-priced (we do not have a huge budget). The rooms at Mufasa are reasonable, nothing luxurious if that is what you are looking for. The common bathrooms and showers were adjacent to our room and we were the only users at the time of our stay. Everything was very clean. We hung out a lot with the other guests at the common area and enjoyed the meals together. I must however emphasise the great fun we had during the 5-day safari.

We stayed 3 days, and unfortunately found out too late that we needed 4 to go to see the big 5 at the park. The people that run this place are so fun. Bar open each evening, cooking great SA Brai under the stars, and swapping stories. We headed to Capetown after, and I was sad to leave. Rooms are reasonable and very clean. Employees took us into town shopping and sightseeing. Would choose to stay at this safe place outside the city in a heartbeat!

shared bathrooms, but clean and always hot water (rare in SA).

mufasa also have a backpackers in Malawi in monkey bay.... before mufasa, monkey bay was crap, but they have made such an amazing place that monkey bay is worth a visit just to spend time here. The owners stay there, and u eat supper around a table with them, its a beautiful setting right on the lake with a private beach and small hiking trails
