Cullinan is a great base for exploring Johannesburg and Pretoria, somewhere to relax and acclimatise to our vibrant country before going off further into SA.
Cullinan Backpackers is situated in a stunning old mansion that conveys a homely feel, offering comfortable dorms with luxury bathrooms en-suite as well as on-suite doubles. Outside, our garden has plenty of space for you to nap in one of our hammocks, soak up some African sun or chill in our pool after a hard day of adventuring. At night our bar comes to life and it is the place to be for a chat with other interesting travelers, while you enjoy a beer/wine/shooter/scotch.
Cullinan is a great base for exploring Johannesburg and Pretoria, somewhere to relax and acclimatise to our vibrant country before going off further into SA. Cullinan is a small rustic little town on the outskirts of Pretoria, where we still practice hospitality with a personal touch. This is also where the African Bush takes over from suburbia and you can still see most of the big 5 in our area. To give you the real feel of Africa, we offer bush-barbecues combined with stunning sun downer game-drives on our wildlife ranch. Here you will have your first close-up of African wildlife, you will see baboon, kudu, impala, zebra or even the very elusive leopard. Later after a bongo drum session, you will listen to the night life in the bush waking up as you sit around a campfire. Amazing experiences to be had, especially considering we are just over 30 minutes away from Johannesburg International! So, whether its a one night stopover before flying back home or onwards on your journey, or first base after arriving from which to explore, Cullinan Backpackers will really give you a sense of the heartbeat of Africa.
With our in-house adventure zone you will never have to sit around wondering what to try next. An amazing array of adventure awaits you, from Lion encounters (we figure why just look at them from afar if you can get right up close and touch them?), abseiling, horse safaris, game drives, bongo sessions, quad-bike trails, paintball war-games, bicycle hire, bass fishing, Soweto Tours and many other adventures.
On a practical note, we are close to the airport and in striking range of all JHB and Pretoria's sight & must-do activities. We are also equipped to help you arrange the rest of your Southern African journey, with expert advise on what to do and what not to miss.
