Welcome to Gemini Backpackers Lodge

Set in a large garden with a swimming pool and secure parking, Gemini has ample space and provides an island of calm in the bustling city. Available on the premises is a tennis court, pub, camping and two ladies’ dorms. One house accommodates independent travellers in comfortable rooms while a separate building with its own facilities sleeps groups of up to 120 people.

We provide pillows, linen and duvets and clean the rooms daily. We have hot showers available all day. There is a cosy winter fireplace and gym equipment available for your use.

We serve tasty meals and cater for vegetarians. We have a large outdoor kitchen where you can whip up your own food.

We have our own tour service on site with registered tour guides and arrange trips to the Apartheid Museum, Soweto, Lesedi, Gold Reef City, the Cradle of Humankind, the Lion and Rhino Park. Gemini specialises in overland tours and trips to the Kruger Park, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Zambia.
