This place, Wild Spirit Backpackers Lodge, is definitely the most magical place I’ve been.. Definitely.

If bare feet and happy hearts, singing for your supper, bread baking lessons, craft sessions, yoga, fire dancing, hoolahooping, meditation and art suit your lifestyle, this is the most perfect place for you in the whole of South Africa…

The place itself, which is located in the heart of Natures Valley in Tsitsikama, is incredibly beautiful and full of love and creativity. It’s unique and unbelievably energetic. It will open your eyes to new ways of seeing the world. I know it sounds cheesy, but I don’t know how else to put it.

We slept in a safari tent, watched the full moon eclips from a treehouse, swam in a ‘secret’ waterfall pool and took an outdoor shower watching the mountains turning pink while the sun set. Oh guys, it was so pretty. I’ll never forget that moment.

And Wild Spirit offers more.. We enjoyed delicious home-cooked meals made with the products from their organic garden and I joined the most alternative dance class ever called Biodanza. I’ve danced like fire, water, earth and air. Hahaha, I know, it sounds so weird and that’s exactly what it was… But I joined the grouplesson and I liked it. Well, I liked it a bit. I felt so relaxed and strange, but in a good way. You forget everything and you’re just in the here and now. Ok, I’ll stop writing about it, I think it’s better. Haha!
