About Ntafufu Eco Lodge

High on a hill with awesome panoramic views of the sea, the Ntafufu estuary and river valley, surrounded by indigenous forest, you will find the Ntafufu Eco Lodge.

We offer unique self-catering accommodation, comfortable and clean. Spacious rondavels, rooms and living areas. The lush garden surrounding the lodge is perfect for birding or just to relax and enjoy nature at its best.

Ntafufu Eco Lodge is off the beaten track and as well off the grid. We collect rainwater for our water supply. For our guests we provide a small solar system for charging phones, cameras etc. No TVs.

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.

Beach: To access the beach, we rent out two seater canoes. Please note there is no car access to the beach. But you will see, that has its beauty!

Romantic: Private, peaceful, quiet and remote. We use candles and bio-fuel oil lamps, which creates a calm romantic atmosphere in the evenings. Out here it is still dark, with no electric lights to interfere with stargazing.

          Peter and me had a wonderful time at Ntafufu Eco Lodge and the warmest welcome ever! Sabine and Armin are such a friendly and helpful couple! We really enjoyed our -unfortunately- too short stay with an awesome view to the hills and the Ocean! Try the canoying and go to the beautiful private beach!!! ❤️ Very romantic with all the candles!! We will definitely come back soon!!! Thank You very much!
