Shapes of Africa Rustic Eco Backpackers Lodge offers Retreats in KwaZulu-Natal

Backpackers eco lodge accommodation
“The closest backpackers to King Shaka International Airport, these rustic Zulu huts and wooden cabins are just 1km from the airport through the sugarcane and only 5km from Umdloti Beach. Built in a lush indigenous garden, the lodge’s homemade authentic food and chili sauces are sensational. Chill on the deck and enjoy the peaceful, wild surroundings. Activities include yoga, pilates, surfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, mountain biking, trail running, bird watching, plane spotting and the Barn Swallow phenomenon”
Shapes of Africa was not long ago a few words spoken, a thought believed. And so it began … in the sugarcane fields of the rolling hills of Zululand… “Let’s build something” turned into a 11 year experience (2007-2018) – wow, look at us now! It all started with the collecting of the round rocks from the hardened clay earth for six weeks – to build the first Zulu rondavel. Created by the bare hands of the local Zulus from Ndwedwe, the second mud hut, dormitory style called the “Wakka Wakka” evolved. Wooden cabins were dragged up and down hills into place – Swallows Nest, Planespotting and The House of the Rising Sun …. and finally, to the last painted hippie caravan….the rustic stay-over evolved. Come TO BE FREE at Shapes of Africa…to be you…to feel nature…to feel the vibe…
Wooden walkways wind through wild indigenous gardens, embracing permaculture and companion planting principles. Sustaining energy and other natural resources where possible, it is our belief to live as lightly on Mother Earth, and as naturally as possible, in harmony with all creatures great and small – and eventually off the grid. A stone’s throw away from King Shaka International Airport…offering travellers, backpackers, businessmen and holiday makers – a unique rustic stay-over experience, serving tasty, wholesome, homemade traditional dishes and chili sauces. Cold beverages are always available and African blended coffees.

Raving about Shapes of Africa

I visit Shapes of Africa often as I love this place. So naturally constructed under trees for shade and coolth! And the owners are so natural and great to know too! Do yourselves a favour and visit Wendy and Ray at the coolest backpackers in KZN. They offer excellent cooking, comfy rooms with awesome, unique decor and a flair for all things South African. They can take you canoeing, fishing, 4x4 driving and more. Only 3km from the warm Indian Ocean! And you can do Pilates there on the deck... Don't miss out!

I love Shapes of Africa. I go there often between travels. Wendy and Ray fetch guests from uShaka airport and tend to their every need. Welcome to a rustic backpackers under cool indigenous trees where birds and monkeys play. Eat divine local foods and enjoy hikes, swims in the ocean, kayaking, 4x4 trips and more with Wendy and Ray. Close to the Barn Swallow Heritage Site! Pilates on the outdoor deck, braais under the stars. The best retreat in KZN!
