Fairy Knowe Backpackers, Wilderness

Fairy Knowe Backpackers and Adventures is nestled under the trees alongside the Wilderness National Park, with easy access to the Touw River Estuary. Many of the best hiking, walking and bird watching trails can be joined straight out of our driveway. It’s an ideal springboard to explore the area and enjoy all of activities on offer in Wilderness, including kayaking, paragliding, hiking, horse riding, canyoning and much more.

We will sort you out with the best guides, best equipment and best prices. Bring your best exploring shoes. In the evening, braai your own food or join us for a home-cooked meal after a long day of exploring. Our bar area is a legendary spot to catch up with other travelers and locals. We have live music at least once a week, and usually more often than that.
