Wild Lubanzi will spin your world.

This is Lubanzi, a little Xhosa Village in the middle of nowhere, somewhere on the Wild Coast. This is where the road ends, this is where the sea and the sky meet, where the sun kisses the waves and the rhythm of life is still pure and undisturbed.

Kick off your shoes, let your spirit soar. Free yourself, climb into your skin, open up, be at one, breathe. Lubanzi is as "away from everything" as you can possibly be.

ACCOMMODATION

With the challenges we are facing during this Coronavirus Crisis, we were lead to re-structure our business in an exciting way. Wild Lubanzi now also offers long-term self-catering accommodation at a very reasonable price. If you are tired of the city and need to break away for a while or are looking for a quiet place where you can focus and do your work creatively and remotely, we have created a space for you.

Our quirky, rustic, hand-built private safari tents come with a little desk, a plugpoint and free WiFi. Shared Shower and Toilet facilities.

Facilities

This is the Wild Coast, so we keep it simple and rural. We are off the grid, running solely on solar. There is enough energy to run the lights of the lodge, a kitchen fridge and a guest fridge, and charge cell phones and laptops during the day. In case of self-catering, there is a fully equipped self-catering kitchen on the ground floor of the main building that you are welcome to use. You can also buy super fresh veggies from our organic garden for some delicious and healthy meals.
BUT: Rural as may be, we do have FREE INTERNET/WiFi so you can keep in touch with the world out there or carry on with your online work.

Things to Do

Lubanzi offers a number of relaxing things to do within easy walking distance. If lolling on a deck or reading on the beach is not your cup of tea, take a stroll to the Lubanzi caves and hunt for bats and pretty shells. Walk to the Mncwasa River Mouth, observe the local bird life, have a swim in the lagoon or book a kayaking adventure. Need some inspiration? Check out our list of things to do in Lubanzi ...

Hiking

While we restructured to accommodate long-term rentals, we support the Central Wild Coast Hiking trail and are happy to accommodate hikers on a daily-rate basis or passers by booking for 3 nights or less. The Wild Coast can easily be explored on foot, and one does not need to be extra fit in order to do this. The hikes are fairly easy and each leg of the journey - from one backpackers to the next - takes about 4 to 5 hours. The fantastic thing about this hiking route is that you don't have to do the whole route - you can hike only one part and visit only one or two of the backpackers, or you can stay as many nights as you wish in any of the in-between backpackers before continuing your walk. As a special service to you, we offer free luggage transfers from one backpackers to the next. Time for you to get those hiking boots on and start walking! Should you prefer an organized hiking trip, contact us via WhatsApp and we will put you in touch with Sinovuyo from Lubanzi Adventures.

Camping

As camping fever is on the rise, we have leveled out a few spaces for campers to pitch their tents. Situated on a hill, there are not many large spaces for campervans, however, our neighbor, Ndawo's Homestay has a great spot for campervans to park, with own amenities, braai area and exquisite views. PLEASE NOTE: There are currently no plugpoints or electricity on any of the camping sites and as we run off solar, our solar power is not enough to power any additional camping fridges/freezers. If you do need to bring your own camping fridge/freezer, no matter how small, we suggest you bring an additional generator to power your equipment.

Covid-19

Due to the Coronavirus crisis and the ensuing lockdown we were forced to re-think and re-structure our backpackers in order to stay in business. Special house rules apply, such as wearing masks upon arrival and in communal spaces, using hand sanitizer frequently, and practicing social distancing.
