Wake up to mind-blowing views of the ocean, beach and forest-lined Mdumbi River!
Discovering the safe, secluded, pristine beaches, river estuaries, rare white mangrove swamps and other Wild Coast treasures makes the 1 hour trip on a dirt road well worth it. Day trips to Hluleka Reserve, Mapuzi Caves, Coffee Bay and Hole In The Wall is roughly an hour’s drive away.
This small, rustic, eco-minded family-run spot lies on the eastern side of the Mdumbi River mouth and is located in the rural Pondo village of Mngcibe in a remote and primitive region of the Wild Coast.
The incredible views and access to the beach and river makes this an ideal laid back place to visit for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts who don’t mind roughing it a bit in this un-spoilt rural area.
Discovering the safe, secluded, pristine beaches, river estuaries, rare white mangrove swamps and other Wild Coast treasures make the 2 hour trip from the main road well worth it. Coffee Bay is just 45 minutes drive away and there is a very scenic 3 hour hike between Coffee Bay and Mdumbi.
Our 3 rooms – Surf, Fish & Relax are set in a L-shaped building which offers the most insane views of the ocean, beach and river. All rooms are private and have sliding doors out onto a sundeck. All rooms have electrical plug points for your convenience. The Mushroom rondavel is set away from the main house and is a bit more private with views of the river.
Please take note that kitchen facilities and ablutions are communal.
