Situated on one of the world's most beautiful, unspoilt beaches in the heart of a traditional Xhosa village, the eco-friendly Bulungula Lodge has been described as "spectacular" by the Lonely Planet and "one of the World's ultimate ethical travel experiences" by The Rough Guide. This Fair-trade lodge is co-owned by the local traditional community and loads of cool activities run daily.
Spend the night in one of the ten traditional thatch huts (doubles, triples and dorms) or in a safari tent (with beds, bedding and electric light) with beautiful views. There is a affordable restaurant with three delicious meals per day and a help-yourself bar. The entire lodge runs on solar power and makes use of a range of innovative, sustainable technologies which protect our environment.
Activities running daily include: * horse-riding: 2 hour horse rides through the village and along the beach * canoeing: up the beautiful Xhora river * Woman Power: spend a day with the local women learning how to harvest and cook local food, make mud bricks, balance water on your head and just having fun. * Herbalist Forest Tour: wander through the ancient forest with the traditional herbalist and learn about weird and wonderful remedies. * Massage * Village Tour: a walking social history tour of our friendly community. * Fishing: learn how to fish in the sea with a local fisherman. All the above tours are owned and run by members of our local community - so all your money goes where it is most needed. We hope to see you here in paradise.

A SEA Pledge is a commitment everyone can make through a written and or monetary pledge to treat the seas, estuaries, coasts and oceans in an environmentally friendly manner. SEA Pledge is more than just a pledge; it is about achieving sustainability, creating opportunities, impacting lives and changing people’s life choices through Sustainable Education and Skills Centres, which will provide education and skills training to help marginalized people who depend upon the seas and other natural resources to find alternative forms of livelihoods and alleviate poverty, while promoting sustainable practices. SEA Pledge and SEAS Centres will be officially launched during COP 17 in a spectacular, fun event that aims to set world records among surfers, divers, swimmers, anglers, yachters, shipping-lines and many others. Visit: www.seacc.org.za/projects/10 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how YOU can get involved! "

The Wild Coast has long been a popular destination for sport fishermen. Shore angling from the rocky coastline rewards the angler with catches of Garrick, kob, steenbras, shad, Kingfish, galjoen and hottentot. The boat anglers fishing from surf launched ski boats have a chance at yellowtail, tuna, yellowfin, swordfish, mackerel, marlin, sailfish, barracuda, cob and queen fish.
