Description

A quiet, cosy lodge in an established Nieu Bethesda garden, the Owlhouse Backpackers reflects one of its previous live as the Buddist meditation centre. The Owlhouse Backpackers can accommodate 18 guests.

Accommodation comprises dormitory rooms, twin rooms, and camping sites in the garden of the Owlhouse Backpackers. All rooms and camping sites share the communal kitchen, common areas and ablutions.

Sip sundowners in the garden, watching the sky light up with stars, or curl up next to the wood-burner. 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.

Environmentally conscious, the Owlhouse Backpackers is 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.

Take a dip with the goldfish in the dam, 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 sign up for guided San rock art and fossil tours. WiFi to catch up with the outside world, but we promise you wont miss anything.
