Nelspruit Backpackers is a long established backpackers in a secure, gated compound for those that like a bit of peace and quiet or maybe a bit of relaxation after a long tour around Kruger National Park. The owners live onsite and the rooms are scattered around their house with a couple of cabins in the garden also. There are two neat fan cooled dorms of six bunk beds each and the mattresses are firm (if a little thin) and the duvets warm. There are cupboards for storage and plenty of power points. The toilets and hot water showers are really clean like the rooms and actually the whole house sparkles as it’s the owners house, too.
No food is available here but the kitchen is available for guests’ use. It is very well kitted out with kettle, toaster, microwave, electric cooker and fridge. There are cubby holes for food storage and there are gas rings outside should the power fail. A large shopping mall is located just 10 minutes walk away with a supermarket and several restaurants. A small swimming pool is in the back garden and there is a small sundeck that looks out over the nature reserve that skirts the house. The large sitting room has comfortable couches and there is DSTV. There is free tea and coffee all day and free Wi-Fi. The family are extremely friendly and accommodating.
