With pristine beaches and mangrove swamps, the turtle-filled estuary flowing between towering rock cliffs and breathtaking waterfalls, it’s an easy place for backpackers to chill-ax.

The Mtentu area is as well known for adrenaline packed activities like 4x4 trails, quad-biking, hiking trails, canoeing, and river and sea fishing, as it is for laid-back time out during which you simply enjoy the beauty and peace of the Wild Coast.

Backpackers can hire a canoe and be prepared to be amazed. Turtles accompany you as you wind your way between cliffs, or take a shower under one of the waterfalls, chat to fiddler crabs in the mangroves or listen for the baboon's bark. For more cultural travellers, visit the Sangoma and experience a traditional healing ceremony in a local homestead.


At the end of an adventure-filled day, bed down in one of Mtentu River Lodge's wooden cabins to prepare for the new day ahead.
