About Freedom O Clock Backpacking Retreat
Set in the heart of Pondoland at the mouth of the insanely beautiful Mdumbi River, Freedom O'Clock offers comfortable accommodation with commanding views of the ocean, river, mountains, and Tshani point with its perfect right-hand wave and beach breaks.
Surfing, fishing, canoeing, hiking and biking, snorkelling, bird watching and horse riding are just a few of the activities to busy your day, or just relax and take in the beautiful rural surroundings.
For those who have not yet travelled to the Wild Coast it should be pointed out that you will be travelling in an under-developed region. The variety and quality of goods and services you may be accustomed to are not always readily available.
Freedom O Clock Backpacking Retreat is set in a remote and primitive region, where even the provision of fresh water can not be taken for granted. Taking this into account we aim to achieve the highest possible standards and we feel it is best to make you aware of this.
If you prefer luxury to comfortable living then Freedom O Clock may not be for you.
Beach: Incredible ocean, beach and river views from all our rooms. Our beach was also rated SA's best beach by Getaway magazine.
Family friendly: As we are family run, we love having other families share in our paradise and beautiful outdoor lifestyle. The area is extremely safe and you can feel secure in knowing that your children can play "outside the gates.
Romantic: If your idea of romantic is Mother Nature...picnic on a secluded beach or a sunrise pancake breakfast on a rolling green hill overlooking the ocean, then look no further.
