The Backpack

The Backpack is stylish, social and central; a traveler who loves to work hard and party hard will find us to be a suitable fit. We are always on the go; from breakfast service, to planning guest tours to bar events at night.

The Backpack supports our staff in more ways than just giving them a salary at the end of the month. We promote staff to increase their skills and to also volunteer in the local communities. We also encourage a team player attitude and provide a space for ideas to be shared on how to meet all staff's needs.

I benefited from my experience extensively, enjoyed free excursions and met some incredible people, local and international! Cape Town is a truly remarkable city and The Backpack is extremely well-revered in the local community, founded upon the practices of fair trade tourism and social responsibility. My only concern is the poor management and lack of communication which has led to a toxic work environment and frustration among staff. I often felt extremely devalued, disrespected, and treated as less than staff. Because of this, I began lowering my expectations and, in turn, my output.

Thank you so much for your honest review. Lee and I the co founders and co owners have replaced the manageress and taken over the management of our internship program ourselves. We are excited and would be happy to send all prospective candidates the feedback we have received from the past interns.
We want the interns to leave The Backpack feeling they have not only had the best time in Cape Town but the most rewarding internship too!
