Gecko Backpackers is a quality international backpackers hostel that is owner-managed and tucked away in one of the last indigenous forests along the Sabie Valley in the South African Lowveld. It serves as a good base from which to explore the world-famous Kruger National Park and the Panorama route. The accommodation comprises basic but clean twin rooms with separate bathrooms, mixed dormitories, and a double en-suite room. The campsite is situated under large shady trees and features stunning open-plan bush view showers and toilets.

Guests have access to a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, or they can share a braai (barbecue) with other guests and enjoy the international atmosphere. The fully stocked bar offers drinks to be enjoyed on the open patio with a full view of the stunning forests. While the splash pool provides a welcome coolness on hot Lowveld days, there are plenty of other outdoor activities available in the area, including Big 5 safaris in Kruger and white river rafting as some of the highlights.

Gecko Backpackers offers units suitable for families wanting to stay and enjoy safari activities in the area, as well as camping sites for those looking to camp while exploring the region. It also has a room with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with a toilet, basin, and shower. The hostel provides personal service and a relaxed atmosphere, making it an affordable and pleasant place to stay.
