Elundini Backpackers is an eco-friendly place. We are 90% of the grid and depend mostly on renewable energy. Electricity is generated from our solar panels. Solar geysers and our hot water donkey are warming up our water. Rain water is harvested from the roof and stored in tanks. We do not have flushing toilets, but use compost toilets instead. Our sleeping rooms are in rondavels and are build with natural materials and have thatched roofs. In the main building we use natural finishes like wood, cane and stone, all found in the area. There is no electricity in the rooms, but we give you a solar light at night. There is a central plug point to charge phones, laptops, etc.
