About Rocky Road Backpackers

Rocky Road Backpackers is set in a five-hectare smallholding amidst indigenous forest and open grazing pastures located in The Crags, approximately 20 km east of Plettenberg Bay.

Rocky Road is the gateway between the country’s Western Cape and Eastern Cape provinces and is ideally situated to provide superb accommodation for all travellers. We are 15 minutes away from the world's highest bungee jump at Bloukrans Bridge and a mere 10-minute drive down a spectacular mountain pass to the unspoiled Natures Valley Beach in the Tsitsikamma National Park.

Rocky Road is far from the daily bustle of urban living. From our well-maintained gardens we enjoy spectacular views of the Tsitsikamma Mountain Range as well as Peak Formosa - the highest in the range. Our adjoining three-hectare forest has an easy trail to view our streams, waterfall and rock pool. Our in-house adventure centre, Rocky's Adventures, will help you make the most of our nearby ocean, scenic sandy beaches, rugged mountains, river gorges and estuaries, as well as numerous varied wildlife attractions.

Your options for accommodation range from fully equipped double or twin Luxury Tents which overlook the indigenous forest to Cottages, timber cabins and hostel-style Dormitories. You are also welcome to pitch your own tent in our attractive garden. Our two large entertainment areas have numerous fireplaces and braai pits, a well-stocked lively bar and our hot tub splash pool facilities. These are great areas in which to mingle with fellow travellers. We also have an indoor big screen TV area for special events whilst our separate office area provides Internet access and free Wi-Fi.

Shuttle services to all local activities and places of interest between Storms River and Plettenberg Bay are available, as are regular runs to Nature's Valley.

The tents are literally warm and cozy, they have electric blankets and an extra normal blanket. Nice showers, complete privacy. Beautiful scenery, natural water and super friendly host.

We were completely wowed by the place. Really beautiful. It was so quiet & peaceful with the most gorgeous trees and endless green lawn. The ablutions was a surprise but very interesting. There was nothing to complain about.I would like to suggest the more barbeque places be put out we found that families were taking up all of them. We would recommend this place.

It was great to have stayed there. Friendly Mack and Rocky made our stay very pleasing. They were accommodating, helpful and very friendly. The facilities were clean and fresh and were so surprising - bath in the bush and outdoors shower - awesome!

I felt very welcome, like in a family and they tried everything to make my stay as good as possible. The rooms were good and the bed very comfortable (with integrated heating!). So all in all a very pleasant stay.
