Wild Lubanzi

This is Lubanzi, a little Xhosa Village in the middle of nowhere of the former Transkei. 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, check your Ego in at the baggage counter. Free yourself, climb into your skin, open up, be at one, breathe. Lubanzi is as "away from everything" as you can possibly be.

Enjoy delicious home cooked meals, freshly baked bread, vegetables and fruits straight out of the local gardens. Learn about alternative energy and a different way of life, off the grid, self-sustainable, close to the heartbeat of this beautiful planet.

Let yourself be carried away by the sound of the waves, blink into a marvelous sunrise from your bed, and watch the dolphins catch the perfect Lubanzi wave while sipping coffee on the deck.

We offer accommodation for whoever has a desire to escape the rat race for a while and collect themselves in a beautiful, serene space. Our rooms include a a plug point, and some have a little desk. The kitchen and bathrooms are shared. Let us know if you want to come work here (and need good WiFi for that), so we can make sure you get your ideal set-up!

We are off the grid, running solely on solar. At night we switch off the main lights and the place is illuminated by the soft light of paraffin lanterns.

Hot water is provided by a simple solar heating system.

There is a fully-equipped self-catering kitchen with gas stove. The organic garden provides a lot of the vegetables for our delicious home cooked meals.
