Freedom O Clock Backpackers

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.

The Story of Freedom O Clock

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.
