Make Mufasa backpackers what you would like it to be, it is a house with a certain atmosphere, like the restless wanderer looking for that special place in the world, eternally looking for new adventures and challenges, it’s a place where you can sit down and be yourself, read a book or it can explode into a very vibrant fun filled adventure, it can be your best time spent in Johannesburg or it could be a place to spend the night before you head further.
It becomes what you want it to be; it is up to you what you make of it.
We who run the backpackers are all guides that frequently return to the road, who love adventure, people and have the background and the knowledge to apply it to our daily life.
Through the last three years we have built up a close relationship with overland companies, guides and individuals that keeps on returning and now call Mufasa Backpackers their home, as a matter of fact about 80% of our visitors are returning visitors, people that came for a day and stayed for a week, guides that is tired of the road stays here to unwind and find them self again, but they always return to the road, cause it’s like a magnet, it’s a lifestyle a never ending story.
We offer good clean accommodation, home cooked meals and a family atmosphere, you will arrive here as a stranger and leave as a friend.
We are a backpacker for backpackers that know what backpacking is about and that are familiar with the backpacker way of being.
Recently we have decided to adopt a orphanage down the road with a total of roughly 75 kids, the youngest being about 6 weeks oldest 19.
I am not saying that we have succeeded in improving their life standards but we are trying, we donate school books, pens, food and whatever we can to make that small difference in a kids life. We gave them a Christmas tree over Christmas, Santa Clause and all the people here donated gifts and sweets. IT WAS GOOD.
So we are striving to make the orphanage work through tourism and sustainable development and to make a difference in a kid’s life at the end of the day.
