Wild Coast - Mdumbi / Tshani Point - Good Surf During Winter Months!

Freedom O Clock is owned and managed by Otto, Lu and little Coral-Bella, who all have a great love for nature and the ocean. “We love hanging out with guests, sharing info on the area, enjoying a cold one on the deck while watching astonishing sunsets and sharing stories about the days adventure around the fire.”

Wake up to mind-blowing views of the ocean, beach, rare mangroves and forest-lined Mdumbi River!  
This small, family-run gem of a holiday spot lies on the eastern side of the Mdumbi River mouth and is located in the rural Pondo village of Mngcibe, Eastern Cape, Wild Coast.

Experience Rural
Living At Its Best

We will help you experience the WILD COAST life in its true sense. From exploring the beautiful Mdumbi river to eating authentic seafood delicacies, you are sure to go home with memories and wonderful moments.

Wild Coast Oysters - Organic And Delicous and Sustainably Harvested.

The incredible views and access to the beach and river in this un-spoilt rural area makes this an ideal laid back place to visit for families, friends, couples and all nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.  Freedom O Clock can sleep 17 people indoors and also offer camping space.

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.
