Buccaneers Lodge and Backpackers in Chintsa
We have created a wide range of accommodation and activities to suit many different needs. Buccaneers Lodge is a haven of tranquility and natural delights. Guests can enjoy quiet beach walks or canoe trips up the Chintsa River or reading a book in the secret bird hide on our own dam. Buccaneers has a lovely lively bar which has certainly seen some great revelry in its time. Our stunning tropical pool is a busy spot in the summer months when a gorgeous poolside café offers decidedly decadent refreshments including divine pizzas. Every day we have some sort of free activity so you can relax and meet the rest of the gang.
Meals are optional but hard to resist. A different dinner is available every night and we always offer a good vegetarian option. We offer famous candlelit dinner parties three times a week and hearty meals in the pub. Breakfasts are leisurely affairs taken in the View of Africa Room with its sweeping views of the Chintsa Bay.
Activities available include marvellous beach horse rides, an excellent surf school, divinely relaxing massages, Chintsa Beach and country bicycle rides, and weekly visits to Bulugha Farm School for a heart-warming Xhosa concert and a chance for you to contribute to our feeding scheme. Right on our doorstep, the Inkwenkwezi Big 5 Game Reserve offers excellent game drives and a unique opportunity to get up close to elephants.

Reviews for Buccaneers Lodge and Backpackers
Love this place! Buccaneers is the only holiday venue we have we have visited more than once (our third time now). The view is stunning; the suites exquisite; the food made with love and always tasty; the bar sociable and friendly; we meet wonderful people - and can walk barefoot to the beach! Paradise! Thank you so much for the good energy you create! Lots of love - Andrew & Carlo Green.
Pleasant sheltered spot for a weekend getaway. Dorms, cabins and lodges. Camping showed me the water was treated and bad tasting. Take bottled water for your drinking and cooking needs. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Meals are ordered ahead.
The setting for the lodge is quite good. . .and we were booked in one of the newly renovated rooms. However the service was some the worst I've experienced and apart from the new rooms the rest of the place was run down and dirty. Just because it's a backpackers does not mean service should be lazy and rude.Enjoyed the room and the view though. . .
Great views. Beautiful coastline. Awesome place, friendly staff. Accommodation is fantastic with a selection to suit all budgets.

The best most organised backpackers I have been to. You just come with your clothes and they literally take care of the rest. Super awesome friendly staff. We will definitely be back!
Best backpackers in South Africa. We rented one of the newer en-suite rooms with a garden view, that had a communal kitchen and lounge next door. We loved it. The room was crisp and clean, the location was astounding and the Cintsa beach stretches for kilometers and kilometers. Staff was a bit aloof to be quite frank but mostly friendly. Great breakfast spot we only discovered the morning we left, so look into that from the beginning!
Love the place. New units built and upkeep of entire area very good. Loved that we could get Emeraldvale craft beer here. Their card machine did not work and they said we could come back the next day to pay. Now where do you still get that kind of attitude? Full marks, guys.
The place is nice but they forced us (2 adults and 3 young children) to leave in a moments notice after we spent there one night as they double booked. Besides an empty apologize they didn't offer any proper compensation. I wont go back there.
Staff gave us a discount on the double with sea view . Very clean and cozy room with great bathroom and small fridge. Kitchen only open until 8pm and the filter coffee for 20 ZAR were the only drawbacks. Bar has good choice of beers.
This place was much larger than I expected! The rooms were spacious and had bathrooms. The view from my dorm room was spectacular. There is a bar with a pool table and the nights get pretty lively. The hostel grounds are well manicured and there a path down to the beach. If you take a right on the beach and walk for 30min you'll find a beached whale. It'll be there for quite some time and even when it's.gone the bones will remain. Sign up for their dinners they're spectacular!
Great fun hostel with free wine with volleyball games get involved. Great views from tree house style layout. Good food get the curry. Rooms nice but pillows very yellow and there was some mould on my quilt. Nice place to stay and chill
Had such a wonderful time. Great atmosphere and friendly staff and decent pricing. The place is amazing.
"First time camping experience...awesome"
Buccs was really an awesome place to rough it up for the first time. They are well organized. It is a beautifull place. We loved the bird life, the lagoon, the flat beach where my kids could just play nonstop. Overall loved it!
