Mzamba to Port St Johns


Ntafufu Eco Lodge
Monday, 14 May, 2007 - 11:01

High on a hill with awesome panoramic views of the sea, Ntafufu estuary and river valley. Surrounded by indigenous forest, you will find the Ntafufu Eco Lodge.

If you want to get off the beaten track to a place that is unique for its beauty and unspoilt surroundings, you will love Ntafufu Eco Lodge, which  is located in Pondoland on the Wild Coast, just 10 km up the coast from Port St Johns.

There is no village, town, shops or anything else to detract from the beauty of one of the most spectacular and unspoiled traditional tribal rural areas in South Africa.

A pristine 2 km beach, accessible by the Ntafufu River awaits your discovery with our canoes.

We offer unique self-catering accommodation, comfortable and clean.

Spacious Rondavels / Rooms and living areas. 

The lush garden surrounding the lodge is perfect for birding or just relax and enjoy nature at its best. 

Ntafufu Eco Lodge is off the beaten track and as well off the grid.

We collect rainwater for our water supply. For our guests we provide a small solar system for charging phones, cameras etc. No TVs. We use candles and bio-fuel oil lamps, which creates a calm romantic atmosphere in the evenings.

With no electric lights to interfere, star gazing on the hill is an easy way to pass laid back evenings. Our lodge comes fully equipped with all the immediate luxuries of modern day living and rural hospitality.

We promote eco-friendly tourist accommodation and activities.  Living so close to nature makes us respect our natural surroundings, and so, we try to minimise the impact on the environment.

Occupancy is limited, as a rule we do not accommodate more than 14 people at a time. Unless you wish to book the whole lodge, in which case, we can accommodate up to 26 people. 

Hide away, relax and unwind! Paradise. Right Here, Right Now.

Built in the early 1900s the lodge was most probably the first hotel type accommodation on the Wild Coast.
