Chameleon Backpackers Hostel was established in 1995, and was one of the first backpacker hostels in Namibia. As our name suggests, we have been adapting to the ever-changing needs of our travelers to offer the best possible accommodation in Windhoek.
Run by a dynamic team, Chameleon Backpackers is a haven for young Namibians eager to enter the tourism industry and welcome you in Namibian style. Catering to travellers across all age groups, from solo backpackers, volunteers, to families and couples, all looking for a home away from home while in Windhoek.
Chameleon offers Windhoek’s best backpacker lodge experience sustainably, using solar power, water and waste recycling systems, and putting a significant focus on uplifting Namibians, including our staff and our local communities.
Chameleon Safaris operates from the lodge and offers scheduled safaris to the main tourist attractions in Namibia. There is also a dedicated travel agency, Chameleon Holidays, on-site to assist in planning every feature of your self drive holiday through Namibia and neighbouring countries.
