Description

It has been said that Buccaneers is a bit like a village because of the way it is spread over eight hectares of wild coastal forest right next to the stunning Chintsa Beach. Many describe it as a place to come home to and a legend in its own time. For us it is home and for the past 12 years we have been sharing it with people just like you - travellers from all over the world.

We have created a wide range of accommodation and activities to suit many different needs. Buccaneers Lodge is a haven of tranquility and natural delights. Guests can enjoy quiet beach walks or canoe trips up the Chintsa River or reading a book in the secret bird hide on our own dam. Buccaneers has a lovely lively bar which has certainly seen some great revelry in its time. Our stunning tropical pool is a busy spot in the summer months when a gorgeous poolside café offers decidedly decadent refreshments including divine pizzas. Every day we have some sort of free activity so you can relax and meet the rest of the gang.

Meals are optional but hard to resist. A different dinner is available every night and we always offer a good vegetarian option. We offer famous candlelit dinner parties three times a week and hearty meals in the pub. Breakfasts are leisurely affairs taken in the View of Africa Room with its sweeping views of the Chintsa Bay.

Activities available include marvellous beach horse rides, an excellent surf school, divinely relaxing massages, Chintsa Beach and country bicycle rides, and weekly visits to Bulugha Farm School for a heart-warming Xhosa concert and a chance for you to contribute to our feeding scheme. Right on our doorstep, the Inkwenkwezi Big 5 Game Reserve offers excellent game drives and a unique opportunity to get up close to elephants.

Stayed for two nights at Buccaneers. What a perfect spot on the Wild Coast. Accommodation is beautiful with fantastic seaviews. The sound of the waves carry you to sleep. The poolbar serves delicious lunches and the breakfast is just great. We'll definitely go back.

26 December 2013

We had such great time at Buccs. The camping sites are wonderful, the communal kitchen area and toilets/ showers were always clean. The staff are friendly and extremely helpfull. The best was the pool bar and poolside cafe, had the tastiest pizzas. The effort that establishment makes to provide entertainment to the guests is mindblowing, we had volleyball competitions, beach and pool parties, etc. We will definietly return, please keep up the standard of service and offering.

Beautiful situation. Could do with a bit of a good clean though.Great food.

24 January 2013

Twee van ons het twee nagte in die kampeerterrein gebly. Die gronde was nat en modderig, die gras lank. Die kombuis was baie, baie vuil, skottelgoed oral gepak. Ook die toilette was vuil. Daar is eers skoongemaak nadat ek gekla het. Die grondpad na Buccaneers is baie klipperig en sleg.

Had such a wonderful time. Great atmosphere and friendly staff and decent pricing. The place is amazing.
