We offer unique self-catering accommodation, comfortable and clean. Spacious rondavels, rooms and living areas.

We use candles and bio-fuel oil lamps, which creates a calm romantic atmosphere in the evenings. Out here it is still “dark Africa”, with no electric lights to interfere with stargazing. We promote eco-friendly tourist accommodation and activities. Living so close to nature makes us respect our natural surroundings, and so, we try to minimise the impact on the environment. Occupancy is limited, as a rule we do not accommodate more than 14 people at a time. Unless you wish to book the whole lodge, in which case, we can accommodate up to 26 people.

Mbotyi River Lodge is situated at the mouth of the Mbotyi River on a wide tidal estuary. Nestled in rolling hills and lush tropical forest, this is the perfect place for anyone looking for a peaceful and tranquil holiday, or for the adventurous wanting to explore the many wild treasures and amazing adventures this coast has to offer. Mbotyi is 27 km from Lusikisiki and is easily accessible by normal vehicle. Along both sides of the road to Mbotyi is the Magwa Tea Plantation, one of the largest in the world. It is wonderful driving through the green tea covered hills and valleys, reminiscent of a Noel Barbour novel about plantations in Ceylon, or rather Sri Lanka. Before descending from the plateau, the landscape changes dramatically with deep gorges filled with lush vegetation and towering waterfalls, and a sharp descent through the Mqaba Forest teeming with fauna and flora waiting to be discovered. Mbotyi River Lodge is at the end of the road and offers the beginning of a new and wonderful adventure. Rooms 201 and 202 are upgraded with magnificent sea, river, and beach views. They can be connected for families, but are individual rooms each with own bathroom and balcony. Upgraded rooms have fans, air-conditioning, TV, and small fridges. Room 201 has a bath and shower over the bath with a king-size bed, while Room 202 has a shower only with toilet and basin, and two single beds or one king-size bed. Rooms 603 and 604 are standard sea-facing rooms. They are spacious and airy with wonderful views of the garden, pool, the surrounding hills, and the ocean. Room 604 has a bath with hand shower, and Room 603 has a shower only. Each room has its own private balcony and fan, with a queen-size bed. An additional single bed can be added if necessary. There are a number of interesting and spectacular sites to be visited by car, mountain bike, horseback, or foot. Whales and dolphins are frequently sighted from one of the many vantage points at Mbotyi, especially during the annual sardine run, which occurs from June to August. Experience the magic of horse riding along the foothills and beaches of the Mbotyi area. The horses belong to the local community, so you will be putting much needed revenue directly into the communities. Many first time riders return with smiles a mile wide from this exciting adventure. Rock, surf, and fly-fishing can all be enjoyed along the coast and on the estuary. More than 800 species of marine fish occur off the coast. Allow a friendly Mbotyi gillie to take you to the best spots. One of Mbotyi’s main attractions is the pristine coastal forest that cloaks the hills overlooking the sea - the most extensive patch on the entire Wild Coast. A weekend spent bird-watching could produce over 180 species, and special birding outings can be arranged. Mbotyi also offers a close up and personal experience to the ancient Pondo culture where you can enjoy a walk through rural villages and tribal lands. Ancient rituals which have been passed down from generation to generation are frequently performed by the resident Sangoma or medicine man. You will find a warm welcome on arrival at Mbotyi, our smiling staff will make your stay a memorable one.

The Lodge on the Beach, is a guest house situated right on the beach and probably the closest you will get anywhere along the Wild Coast. There are three rooms at The Lodge on the Beach, all of which are sea facing overlooking the length of Second Beach, a rustic community consisting of three accommodation establishments, two quirky restaurants and a local shebeen. All rooms, the large shaded veranda and the braai area have magnificent views of the ocean, lagoon and forest with 'The Gap and Blowhole' in the background and Bulolo River and Lagoon at your doorstep. Each room has a small sundeck and private bathroom which is not en-suite. The Lodge on the Beach has a relaxed atmosphere and is most suitable for couples and small families who wish to be a stone’s throw away from the ocean and lagoon. It is also a good place to start the 'Port St Johns to Coffee Bay Hike' from, as we are right at the beginning of this hike. The Lodge on the Beach is a bed and breakfast, and dinners can be provided on request. Local fishermen often provide seafood such as crayfish/lobster, fish, mussels and oysters which we prepare for guests. There is also a self-catering option where guests make use of the communal kitchen and braai area. There are also two restaurants namely the 'Delicious Monster' and 'Wood`n Spoon' which are within 50 meters of The Lodge on the Beach. Once at The Lodge on the Beach there are many things to do without driving anywhere which include relaxing on the beach or in the lagoon, fishing, walking through Silaka Nature Reserve to Third Beach, walk to 'The Gap and Blowhole', hiking to Bulolo Waterfall, and paddling up the Bulolo River.

    Wild Coast South Africa

    Wild Coast Lodge Accommodation

    The Wild Coast is a really great destination. Protected for years by limited road access, this area offers a combination of rural tranquillity, traditional African lifestyles and architecture, almost unbelievable scenery and fascinating flora and fauna with the opportunity to have a great beach holiday.

    Hotels are spread out along the coast in the small settlements, almost all of which have their own road down from the N2 - so it's not easy moving from one coastal spot to the next. This is a bit of a problem, but the planned 'solution' may be even worse. A planned coastal highway would, admittedly, make it easier to get around for both tourists and those few locals who can afford cars but the main advantage would be that it would make it so much easier to transport the heavy metals that multinational corporations are just itching to mine in the to date untouched coastal dunes. So - our vote is we put up with somewhat tricky road access.

    As for the hotels - some are great, some a little run down, but all offer fantastic views and, invariably, excellent and plentiful seafood. This is a wonderful family holiday destination and almost all the hotels have family rooms, babysitting services, children's programmes and children's meals. There is so much to do here and so many new friends to be made that most children are quite reluctant to leave at the end of the holiday, and many local families book their next year's accommodation as they leave for home.

    Although the coastal hotels are wonderful, probably the best way of experiencing this area is to spend some time with the local people. There is a fantastic community project on the northern Wild Coast, which offers horse riding, hiking, canoeing and fishing from a beautiful tented camp overlooking a turquoise-blue lagoon. Here you can chat with the local people, learn how they live and go fishing with them, or foraging for wild foodstuffs. Or, of course, you can just lie around relaxing in beautiful surroundings.

    The vegetation of this area is rather unique, as many of the biomes of South Africa come together here, so you will find some unusual plants in what botanists call the Pondoland Centre of Endemism.

    The Wild Coast is renowned for its fantastic surfing and excellent fishing. There is potential for good diving but the conditions are not consistent and there is very little infrastructure. This all changes in July, though, when itinerant dive operators move into the area to take advantage of the sardine run, which is the greatest migration on earth, in terms of biomass.

    The Wild Coast has long been a favourite hiking destination but the huts fell into disrepair in the 1980s and haven't been rebuilt. But - and this is a good but - you can hike between hotels. Now that's a win-win. You don't have to carry sleeping bags or food. You can even organise to get your luggage driven round for you and take only a day pack. That's styling.
    Towns on the Wild Coast include the laid back Coffee Bay, the rather bustling Port St Johns and, right at its northern extremity, Port Edward.
