Dear Traveler,

In the heart of the Kalahari and the peaceful town of Upington, ( just 200 meters from the Kalahari Mall) you will find Aardwolf Backpackers. Our establishment is built on the principle of providing affordable, clean and safe accommodation for the weary traveller.

We currently offer a family/double room and a dormitory room option for the true backpacker. Come and  kick off your well-worn travelling shoes and relax in our lounge with DStv or enjoy a relaxing evening in the braai area with its ever faithful ceiling fan. Our communal kitchen offers all the necessary appliances for cooking your favourite meals and it is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.


Secure parking is available and your vehicle, whether a butch 4x4 or a reliable family car, will be safely locked up behind our security gates at night.

As everyone wants or needs to communicate with someone back home, or make those last minute travelling arrangements, we offer a wireless internet connection. Arrangements can be made for transport to and from the airport or bus stop.
