Make no mistake about it, Mtentu will be one of your most memorable experiences of travelling South Africa. As far as Wild Coast accommodation goes, this is top notch! A small, but constant stream of backpackers from all over the world are beginning to trickle into this magical and unheard of kingdom. Be one of the few travellers to experience a land forgotten by the outside world and feel the magic of a place untouched by conventional tourism.
Take the Leap...
Make getting here part of the Mtentu experience. No matter what your time limit, make the effort to get off the beaten track and forget about ticking boxes for a while. Although getting to Mtentu may seem complicated, in truth it's as easy as pie. Choose one of the options below that best suits you and set off on your adventure.
1) Drive to the lodge. If you are in a high clearance car or 4x4, follow our directions and make your way to the lodge. If you are in a small car, its dry weather and you feel like driving to the lodge, you can make your way to Wonderful's House, +- 2km from the lodge. Here we can fetch you for free and you can leave your car with Wonderful to look after it (Please note the road is bad and not passable by small car in wet weather).
2) Drive to The Wild Coast Sun in Port Edward and hike or use a 4x4 transfer to the lodge.
3) For public transport, catch a mini-bus taxi to Bizana. From the main taxi rank, take Tulani’s mini bus to Mtentu. The taxi leaves around 1pm every day. For more information, call Tulani on 083 565 6704083 565 6704.
Otherwise, jump out at The Wild Coast Sun just before Bizana and take our transfer or one
of our amazing hikes into the lodge.
4) Let our well-trained guides meet you at your backpackers and take you all the way to the lodge by mini-bus taxi, hike & horse ride. (Mantis and Moon Backpackers, Kububoi and The Spot backpackers).
