Trek across some of the most beautiful scenery South Africa has to offer as you make your way to this Wild Coast destination. Take a taxi, walk along the pristine coastline and even catch a swim while you’re there, and finally reach Mtentu Lodge lead by our awesome guides.
Let our guides take you from your South Coast backpacker hostel to Mtentu
- Meet at either one of the three designated backpackers on The Natal South Coast (The Spot, Mantis & Moon and Kubaboi). Here your guide will get you ready for your adventure ahead.
- Guide will show you how to catch a local ‘mini-bus’ and demonstrate how real locals travel, as you make your way over the border and into Pondoland (The Wild Coast).
- From here the guides will take the group on a 14km hike along the beach past The Mzamba Fossil Beds and through isolated rural Pondo communities. The group will reach Nyameni River around lunch time where they will have lunch and a swim in the beautiful pools around the river. After lunch guests who are horse riding will be met by their horse guide. From here guests will ride the rest of the way to the lodge along beautiful deserted beaches. Guests who are not riding will continue the hike for the rest of the way. (Horse riding R350 per person)
- On arrival at Mtentu guests will be met by friendly local staff who will show them to their cabins and give them a tour of Mtentu community eco-lodge. A hearty dinner and cold beers will relax everyone and ease them into the Pondoland mood.
