OFF THE GRID LIVING!
VERY RURAL, VERY REAL, AWESOME!
In a small Pondo village named Entwebeni, Mngcibe you will find Freedom O Clock.
Freedom O Clock is owned and managed by Otto, Lu and little Coral-Bella, who all have a great love for nature and the ocean. Your surroundings offer you accommodation situated in a rural and remote area…..faaaar away from the maddening crowds.
Situated near the mouth of the insanely beautiful Mdumbi River in a remote and primitive region of the Wild Coast we offer holiday and backpacking accommodation. Surfing, fishing, river trips, boat hire, canoeing, hiking and biking, snorkeling, bird watching, and horse rides are just to mention a few activities to busy your day.... or just RELAX!
The views and access to the beach and river makes this an ideal laid back place to visit and is ideal for the nature lover and outdoor enthusiast who don’t mind roughing it a bit here and there.
Our ACCOMMODATION offers commanding views of the ocean, river, rolling green hills and Tshani point with its perfect right hander and beach breaks! We can accommodate up to 14 guests indoors and 12 guests (3 sites) camping at one time. Accommodation is basic, rustic, clean and comfortable and we offer a catered or self-catered option.
Separate self catering communal kitchen / dining makes for social evenings and is equipped with a fridge/freezer, additional freezer, gas stove, the usual kitchen goodies, dining table and seating for 10-12 people.
We offer CAMPING in a very rural setting (fenced within the property). We like to call it "Freestyle Camping" and it is not your average "Aventura" setup. You will need a 4x4 or a good bakkie should you want your vehicle parked at your tent. Your vehicle can securely be left at the main house if need.
We offer 2 camping areas :
ABLUTIONS are communal with “Rocket Showers” (paraffin hot water geysers) and flush toilets.
There are heaps of ACTIVITIES for the outdoor enthusiast and nature lover…
Surfing - World class right hand points. Classic beach breaks. Waves to suit all levels. Lessons available. Fishing - river, rock and surf. Deep sea trips can be arranged.
Hiking trails - Take a hike on the wild side. Guided hikes to Port St Johns, Hluleka and Coffee Bay can be arranged.
Horse rides - Explore the village on horse back or go for a beach ride. These are not your average racehorses, so relax, sit back and enjoy the ride and awesome scenery!
Bird watching (Crowned Crane, Fish Eagle, Giant King Fisher, Hornbills, Bea Eaters, Sun Birds, Raptors – too many to mention…..and many, many more…. We’re not too clued up on all the bird species, so maybe you can help us identify a few.)
Visit the beautiful fresh water pools of the upper Mdumbi river. Spend the day swimming and sunning in a secluded and peaceful environment.
Discover local culture and learn to weave grass mats or send the kids herding cattle with the local children.
