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.

For the time being, we have two Safari Tent Double Rooms, one Tipi-Style Safari Tent Double Room, and a Rondavel Dorm with 10 beds. We are still building up the new Wild Lubanzi Backpackers and photos of the new rooms/accommodation will be added here as soon as they are ready. Come stay in a lovely Safari Tent with breathtaking views and be part of the reconstruction of Wild Lubanzi!

This 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 freezer, a bar fridge and a guest fridge, and charge cell phones and laptops. At night the place is illuminated by the soft light of lanterns. There is a fully equipped self-catering kitchen that you are welcome to use. The organic garden provides a lot of the vegetables for our delicious home cooked meals.
BUT: Rural as may be, we do have really fast FREE INTERNET/WiFi so you can keep in touch with the world out there.

Things to do @ Lubanzi

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 and have a swim in the lagoon. Need some inspiration? Check out our list of 29 things to do in Lubanzi ...

Food Stuff

Wild Lubanzi prides itself in delicious, home cooked meals. We serve freshly baked bread (still hot from the oven!) and fitler coffee for breakfast. Each dinner is an idividual creation from the chef of the day, prepared from scratch, with yummy ingredients from our organic vegetable garden. Let us spoil your taste buds! Make sure to sign up for dinner when you make your booking - we don't have an official "restaurant" and cook only for the amount of people who signed up.

Central Wild Coast Hiking Trails

The Central 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!


If you've got some time on your hands, or are looking for a life experience, come lend us a hand at Wild Lubanzi! There's tons of stuff to do - we can find a job for any skill you might have. We are currently rebuilding our backpackers and our volunteers are a vital part of that process, helping us to move Wild Lubanzi into the future!
