Round and Rondavel

Elundini Backpackers is run by a Belgian-Xhosa couple. Lieve first came out to South-Africa in 1999 with a volunteer project and worked as an occupational therapist in the different townships around Plettenberg Bay. There she met her future husband, Elliot, who is originally from Hogsback but moved to Plettenberg Bay to finish his studies.

In 2001 they moved together to Belgium where Lieve continued to work as an occupational therapist and Elliot worked as a bricklayer in a construction company. Their 2 children, Lucas and Elena, were born there. In 2009, after years of dreaming and planning, they moved back to South-Africa to start a backpackers. They had the dilemma to start the backpackers in Plettenberg Bay or around Hogsback. But because of the beauty and unspoiled nature of the Eastern Cape they settled down in the rural village of Elundini. It took them 1.5 years to turn an open piece of land into an amazing place they call home and welcome other backpackers to feel at home!

Posted already on the web...A great local experience. "Hogback" is much more than the tourist village up the mountain. It is in a village and is part of the life of the place...Friendly, recommend you give it a try. Gets 5 stars from me...travelled in Africa and India so felt safe and welcome. Give it 5 stars as a Backpackers!
