About
Description
Rocky Road Backpackers in The Crags, about 18 kms to the east of Plettenberg Bay, is on a secure rural small holding set adjacent to indigenous forest and surrounded by open green pastures with wonderful views ...More of the Tsistsikamma Mountain foothills. Our tranquil, laidback base is the perfect place in which to relax and enjoy nature far from the rush of normal day to day living. The well maintained large gardens have many shaded ‘chill spots’ where one can unwind with a book or the company of others while the plunge pool is a great spot to take off the heat on those hot daysIt’s also a great spot from which to explore and experience the many attractions that the Plettenberg Bay region has to offer. We are close to the world’s highest Bungy, Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, The Elephant Sanctuary, The Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre and unspoilt Natures Valley. We’re well positioned for marine boat safari’s, game reserves and a vast network of scenic hiking trails covering forest, mountain and coastline.Rocky Road Backpackers is conveniently located a mere 2 kms from the N2 and is listed in the current editions of Coast to Coast, The Alternative Route and is also an accredited Baz Bus stop. Our accommodation is the standard mix of dorms, twins and doubles in the main farm house, bungalows and fully equipped luxury safari tents while those preferring to provide their own tents are free to do so.. Our entertainment areas come alive after working hours with an enclosed veranda/bar area with two fireplaces, the outside fireball for fireside chats and when the plunge pool is swung over to the hot tub on Friday nights. Rocky Road has a well established reputation for its quality farm style breakfasts and evening meals – roasts, casseroles, stews and, of course, the end-of-week braai’s. It goes without saying that the social happenings also add to the memories, which is why many people have returned to continue their experience of Rocky Road. Less
