Overlooking ivory sands and backed by green hills that swoop down to a sparkling sea, Bulungula Lodge near Coffee Bay offers intrepid travellers the opportunity to experience a slice of African paradise.

The opportunity is also a challenge - to escape preconceptions and open your eyes, mind and soul. It’s an invitation too - to experience a vibrant Xhosa community (who own the lodge) on their own terms and to share their life.

This jewel of a village, cut off from the outside world by forests, rivers and the ocean was only accessible to 4x4s and intrepid hikers but now has a road accessible to all.

Take a beach horse ride to the beautiful Xhora River where you can canoe upstream to the forested cliffs. Or jump onto a tube with a cold beer and let a river of kamikaze jumping fish float you home through a lush kingfisher-bright forest. As the sun sets, stroll to the mud-hut shebeen* to share a pot of Jabulani (happiness) beer.

Email them to find out about the epic 2-day coastal hike from Coffee Bay to Bulungula. Free bag transfer.

Bulungula is solar powered and rocket showered.

Bulungula was one of the first lodges in the world to be Fair Trade certified.
