Owlhouse Backpackers

Nieu Bethesda, Eastern Cape, South Africa


A quiet, cosy lodge in an established Nieu Bethesda garden, the Owlhouse Backpackers reflects one of its previous lives as the Buddist meditation centre.

Take with a dip with the goldfish in the dam, hire bikes to explore Nieu Bethesda or hike in the surrounding Sneeuberg Mountains. Make day trips to the Mountain Zebra National Park and The Valley of Desolation or guided San rock art and fossil tours. Catch up with the outside world every now and then on the internet...

Sip sundowners in the garden, watching the sky light up with stars, or curl up next to the wood-burner, enjoying the carefully selected backpackers' wines. Treat yourself to the home-made bread and cottage cheese while braaing some delicious Nieu Bethesda Karoo lamb. If you don't fancy cooking, Ian and Katrin, your well-travelled hosts, can provide breakfast, a packed lunch and/or dinner from locally produced meat and veggies, or point you to the best eateries around town. They will pick you up or drop you off in Graaff-Reinet for R100, and you can buy your bus tickets from them.

Environmentally conscious, the Owlhouse Backpackers is the one of the few establishments in Nieu Bethesda making use of solar geysers, compost toilets and grey water recycling. All rubbish is separated and as much as possible composted on site.

The Owlhouse Backpackers can accommodate 80 guests. Pets are welcome by arrangement.
