Join one of the owners of Ashanti Lodge Gardens on a walk through the beautiful neighbourhood surrounding the backpackers. This tour will help you get your bearings of the Gardens area. With its many restaurants, bars, fashion and entertainment, the city-suburb is one of the best places to stay in Cape Town. It's got the peacefulness of the suburbs, but you're only a 10-minute walk away from the bustling city centre.
More than 20 years ago, Ashanti was one of the first backpacker hostels in South Africa. It's now a well-known Cape Town establishment offering great budget accommodation options in 3 different properties. Ashanti also provides travel advice and tours -- such as budget safaris, overland adventures, and day trips -- throughout Southern and East Africa. Ashanti will help make your African experience everything you dreamed of.

Directions to Starting Point
Ashanti Lodge Gardens is located at 11 Hof Street. You can easily get here by car, bus or foot. The MyCiti bus stops at the bottom of Hof Street. Get off at the Mount Nelson stop and face so that the giant pillars of the hotel are in front of you, then walk left, and the first road right is Hof Street. Ashanti is about 200m up this street on the left-hand side. It's a big orange building. You can't miss it!
