Set on rolling green hills above the beautiful and pristine Mdumbi Beach (which is one of the best surf spots along the Wild Coast, and indeed, the coast of South Africa), Mdumbi Backpackers is a laid back, rustic and relaxing getaway for all travelers and eco-friendly tourists.
Mdumbi Backpackers is well integrated with their community, and most of the activities - such as kayaking around the islands on the beautiful Mdumbi Lagoon, horse riding and hiking trail guides, fishing, etc. - are directly run by the local villagers.
Places you will visit in the Wild Coast:
The Wild Coast offers world class waves and beaches. The Wild Coast Ocean offers every kind of wave you could want, from beach breaks to point breaks, big swell to small swell, tube rides to mellow fun rides!
When you out in the Transkei Ocean you then know you are surrounded by Africa. Things here are the way they used to be all over South Africa, where culture is strong, living is simple and the locals are in high spirits. The untouched land makes for a picturesque view while chilling on the beach, fishing on the river or having sundowners on the river bank.
Justin Sanders, your guide will take you to several surf breaks and secret beaches along the Wild Coast making sure you get waves everyday! No one knows the Transkei like Justin Sanders. The surf breaks around the Transkei vary in size and power, point breaks and beach breaks. Justin will assess your level of surfing and then decide which breaks are best for you. There is a wave for everyone, from beginners to professionals!
Other activities when not surfing include the well known Hole in the Wall, local craft markets, secret beaches, fishing, tanning and get a taste of some traditional dance and drumming. So yes, those who don’t surf will still have plenty to do!
When travelling this part of the world, the community is really what makes your experience unforgettable. The Wild Coast is a Xhosa community made up of many tribes. You will experience the way the Xhosa people live and you will learn all about their culture and beliefs.
You will stay at Swell Tours Guest Lodge which is our very own Lodge, built by the Xhosa people and looks straight into the eye of a perfect wave!
Justin Sanders, owner and guide for Swell Tours will be your guide. Justin is a very well known South African Professional surfer. Justin has been visiting the Transkei with his father since he was just a small boy and has loved everything about it from the first day! In fact, it is due to his dedication to the area and his love for the community that he was offered his very own land!
He has surfed every break as well as knows of spots unnamed. He has vast knowledge of the area, surf breaks and weather patterns. You really won’t find a better tour guide than Justin when visiting the Transkei!
