Dear Guests,

In accordance to the President’s speech regarding the COVID19 lockdown, and as we are classified as a non-essential service, we will be closing our business between the 26th March 2020 until the 17th April 2020.

As difficult as this time will be for us with zero income, paying all our overheads and making sure our staff receive compensation during this lockdown, closing is the right and responsible thing to do.

South Africans are resilient – we know that as a family, as a community and as a unified country, we will get through this together!


Our reservations team will be in contact with everyone that has bookings during this time to make arrangements. We ask that you please do not phone the office during this time as it delays this process.


Our reservations team will be responding to email enquiries for future bookings, enquiries, etc when they are able to return to office and all phone lines will be closed during this lockdown.  We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding in this regard.

The world as we know it might be a different place when this is all over, but we guarantee that we will continue to go that extra mile to make sure that Ansteys Beach Backpackers will always be a special place for you, your family and friends. 

We hope you and your families stay safe and positive during this time and we look forward to welcoming you all back at Ansteys in the future. 

We as a country (and world) WILL get through this by acting responsibly and with care.

Warmest Regards

Tash, Rudy and the Ansteys team
