We were very impressed with Monzi Backpackers, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there! It is a luxury Backpackers - very comfortable tents with electricity and a fan, wonderfully clean bathrooms, a magnificent pool and entertainment area, and truly amazing staff members! I would highly recommend Monzi Backpackers, and will definitely stay there again!

We booked our two-night stay here on a last-minute whim without having done too much research and were quite surprised that it turned out as well as it did. We stayed in a self-catering permanent tent with a en-suite bathroom. The communal kitchen was well-kitted out with gas hobs and there were staff who would wash-up for you! Two very... More

We spent 3 nights at this backpackers and wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was very well organized, and anything you needed was provided, including your own personal box in the fridge. The one thing I did miss was soap to wash my hands by the toilets though. Everything is clean and mostly bug free. Very good service, you're... More

Wow such good value for money!! We stayed here on a short two day trip as we're back packing around South Africa and have many places to see and visit, the beds were really comfy and the facilities were lovely. The kitchen was huge and swimming pool very refreshing. The complex had a great chilled out vibe about the place.... More

We enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms and the atmosphere. It was a good time for all of us. The location is not too big that you feel lost but small enough that you can relax and enjoy without feeling overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle. It was very quiet and we would recommend it!

The 'tents' were really good. Ours was clean and had a proper shower room at the back and also a fridge and sink. Tea making facilities would have been good because we had an early start for our safari. We stayed in hut 1 which I wouldn't recommend because it's right next to the walk way and backs onto the...

We ended up staying here for 6 nights as it was so great. The tents are not your traditional camping experience.. they are located on the first floor of an open sided building and have 2 twin beds, a fan and a bedside table with lockable doors for your valuables, a light and a charging station (for 2 mobiles!).

The Monzi Safaris Accomodation was great to stay in, very close to all major places in Santa Lucia. The place was very clean and organized, we enjoyed our stay. Staff is very helpful in organizing trips, safaris and boat trip to see the hippos of Santa Lucia.
