Welcome to Paradise on The Wild Coast

Nestled on South Africa’s Wild Coast, Mtentu Lodge is perfectly situated to provide an escape from the rat race while not being too isolated. Just a 24km beach horse ride/hike/cycle or 65km drive from The Wild Coast Sun lies the untamed paradise of Mtentu, arguably the most wondrous Wild Coast destination available.

If you’re looking for the adventure of a lifetime, or just the chance to breathe in the fresh air of the magnificent Wild Coast, you have found just the right place! Mtentu Lodge is an eco-lodge owned in partnership with the local Amadiba Community. A percentage of turnover goes directly back to the community that makes Mtentu magical. Our lodge is the perfect laid-back and off-the-beaten-track spot within a traditional African community.

Untouched beaches, waterfalls, a turtle-filled estuary with Mkambati game reserve next door, and friendly locals ready to invite you into their homes and hearts await you at Mtentu. As a community partnership lodge, we are dedicated to promoting sustainable development and eco-tourism. Mtentu is not just a holiday but an experience, from your trip into the lodge to having a solar shower while watching whales. It’s all part of rediscovering the simple joys of life.

So shake off the dust of the city, canoe up the estuary under waterfalls, go horse riding along the beach, stay in a local village, get your fishing rod out, swim in the Indian Ocean, relax in a natural spring pool, tackle breath-taking hiking trails, enjoy sundowners at our secret rock… or just grab one of our books and soak up the sun.

I cannot say enough about the managers at Mtentu, Elena and Allan. They were superb – excellent food, comfy clean beds and lots of hot water. Well done to Mtentu staff. A wonderful stay

We finally got to spend a few days at Mtentu last week and WOW, super impressed. We love the rustic chilled vibes, especially after some gruelling hikes that rewarded us with the most incredible views and waterfalls (and a chocolate tequila).
