Description

The Green Elephant is a small backpackers where everyone is interested in YOU the person. Our great team of Nyasha, Shingi, Edwina, Traci, Pat, Lucy, Farai, Esther and Mavis will try to make your trip to Cape Town memorable for all the right reasons.

We know Cape Town very well and South Africa well.
Backpacking is our hobby and passion. We share our experiences with you and would love to have you stay with us.

We feel we can offer the best advice with a friendly smile in Cape Town, so give us a question and we'll find your answer.

The Green Elephant is situated in the lively student area of Observatory. Close to pubs and restaurants, public transport, shops, movies, University of Cape Town (UCT), Groote Schuur Hospital, sportsgrounds and theatres it is well placed for a base in Cape Town while you enjoy the benefits the Cape has to offer. Being in a student area, the pubs are full of young people and prices are low . We are Not in the centre of the city!

Because we understand travelling alone and on a budget, we continuously look for the best options for you in Cape Town. There is no compromise on quality. We are here to enjoy ourselves too, so join us when we go parachuting, sailing, hiking or just out partying!
Look at the great pics and one was taken on top of Lions Head on a full moon which is one of the hikes that we do.
