Drive In Yourself by Car

The Wild Coast is considered by many to be one of the best travel destinations in the world. This reputation alone makes the drive worthwhile! If you’re driving in a 4×4 or high-clearance car, follow our directions and make your way to the lodge. You will be passing some gorgeous scenery along the way and we won’t judge you for stopping to take a couple of ‘selfies’.

Please DO NOT use a GPS or Google Maps to get to us – they are not accurate for our roads.

Please Note: Our roads are very bumpy and can get very slippery in the rain.

Options for the more adventurous…

4×4 Transfer From The Wild Coast Sun

Mtentu Lodge offers a 4×4 transfer or the local experience in a private Kia taxi to the lodge from The Wild Coast Sun in Port Edward. Here you can park your car safely and let us transport you to the lodge. Please contact us to enquire about the cost, as well as the different vehicles and people capacity that best suit your group.

Hike To Mtentu Lodge

Mtentu Lodge is situated a mere 24kms from The Wild Coast Sun along the beach. This makes it ideal for guests who would like to take our amazing local hiking trails into the lodge. Leave your car at the casino and let our professional guide take you on the hike of a lifetime! A very popular adventure, suitable for all experience levels of horse riding, is to do a half hike and half horse ride into the lodge. The hike is 10kms and the ride is 14kms (the youngest person to do it was 7 years old).

Cycle to the Lodge

Mtentu is surrounded by many hiking and biking trails through pristine landscapes and along mesmerising coastlines, it’s no wonder people love the journey here almost as much as their stay. We’re only 24kms from The Wild Coast Sun along the beach and invite you to cycle over. The short distance makes it pretty much ideal for this activity, so leave your car at the casino and go on the adventure of a lifetime. This is how memories are made!

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

Brenda Coombe

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).
