With our busy lives taking up a lot of our time, we sometimes need to relax and unwind. A vacation is exactly what one needs to recharge their batteries.

There’s nothing better than watching the stress free environment of animals in the wild. There is a variety of activities and areas around Lungile Backpackers Lodge to help you relax.
Port Elizabeth is not only known for their friendly people and amazing beaches, but also for their breathtaking hiking trail. The Settlers Park hiking trail is one of Port Elizabeth's most famous and enjoyed trails.
