Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers Welcomes Essential Workers And Business Guests


Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers is one of our favourite accommodation venues in the city. While their usual vibrant programme is on hold for the time being, they are slowly opening up to welcome back essential workers and business guests in level 3 lockdown. You can now also book a private guided tour around their neighbourhood for small groups. Pretty soon we’ll be back to enjoying their Sunday lunch feasts around the fire and taking tuk tuk rides around Orlando! In the meantime, here’s what Lebo’s has on offer. 

Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers is the accommodation for backpackers in Soweto. But this is no ordinary overnight stay. Lebo’s is all about the experience, offering both daytime tours and overnight adventures. However, there is also a deep sense of homeliness to this humble hotel. With its self-catering guest house, outdoor camp site and nightly meals served around the fire, it’s almost impossible not to feel welcome.

Over the past few months, Lebo’s has been at a standstill. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, they’ve had to halt all tours, events and room bookings. To keep themselves afloat, they’ve offered experience packages to buy now and use later on their walking tours, tuk tuk rides and cycle tours around Soweto. Their quirky yellow tuk tuks have been hard at work too, delivering fresh produce to the community nearby. Overall, throughout this difficult period, Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers has shown itself to be a dedicated community centre and beacon of hope for better times. As lockdown regulations begin to ease, here’s what Lebo’s has in store:

Lebo’s In Level 3 Lockdown

As we enter advanced level 3 lockdown, things are on the up at Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers. They are now welcoming essential workers and business guests for accommodation at affordable prices. For nurses, doctors and other essential workers, this service is invaluable. Providing them with a safe place to stay after long shifts, Lebo’s has become a safe haven for our most unsung heroes. Strict hygiene measures will be in place to ensure their staff and guests stay healthy.

As we gradually reopen our economy too, many business people require a safe, comfortable and affordable venue to stay over. Lebo’s is saving the day with their budget accommodation and homely atmosphere. The hotel should also soon open their doors to guests for recreational purposes as well. We can’t think of a better place to unwind after months in lockdown. It’s the home away from home you never knew you needed!

Guided Tours

Tour guides are allowed to operate in level 3 lockdown as well, which means that Lebo’s unique Soweto experiences have been able to resume to some extent. This winter they are offering superb deals on their walking and cycle tours through the historical streets of Soweto. Small family groups, couples or individuals are invited to book a private tour at discounted rates. Come and experience Soweto like never before, taking in all the sights, sounds and tastes that Lebo’s has to offer. This is definitely going down on our post-lockdown bucket list!
