Coffee Shack Adventure Backpackers & Accommodation

Eastern Cape, South Africa

TGCSA 3-Star Backpackers and Hostelling

Coffee Bay is still a deeply traditional area of South Africa where visitors can experience a way of life far removed from Western culture. Here Xhosa culture, values and beliefs preside over daily life. Coffee Shack Backpackers is an accommodation establishment that gives visitors the chance to interact meaningfully with the local Xhosa people.

When Coffee Shack first started, the Headman invited the owners to his home to share in his family’s dinner and celebrate the making of new friends. This progressed to what is now called the Village Dinner and every Friday guests are invited by one of three families to attend a traditional dinner, song and dance. Be treated to a warm Xhosa welcome, enjoy a home-cooked traditional dinner, and join the dancing if you can keep up!
