Nkwazi Eco Backpackers is an aspiring off-grid project meaning we plan to be totally off the grid in terms of food, electricity & water in the next 10 years. How we plan to do this is to utilise the funds we generate from accommodation, home grown food, volunteers & guided safaris to create a sustainable closed loop model for guests, students, surrounding farms & EVERYONE for that matter to be apart of a revolution.
Join us on our journey as we learn how to grow, harvest & store organic food, create sustainable - water, animal & shelter systems that look after themselves & use mostly what the earth has to offer.
Or...just relax around the pool with a cold drink & enjoy the sounds of the forest.
The beach is 5 mins drive away for those keen for water sports or to have a relaxing drink at the only actual beach bar in KZN, once it gets windy best to head for our forests & our sister farm - Chantilly Resort has a pub&restaurant as well as beautiful gardens.
We are mostly a self-catering backpackers however we love to cook & especially with our own organic fresh produce so occasionally we let our creative flair loose in the kitchen & whip up some mean chows at affordable prices.
If you're keen to stay longer then why not go on a once in a lifetime nature adventure with professional safari guides who will tailor make you a guided safari that most people only get to dream about.
