Bulungula Lodge, situated on the breathtaking Wild Coast, is the realisation of a dream to create an eco-friendly backpackers' lodge in the most beautiful place in South Africa in partnership with a vibrant, traditional community.

The community of Nqileni village owns 40% of the lodge and is an integral part of daily life here. No fences, no crime, no beggars, no hassles, just friendly smiles. Bulungula Lode is one of the first lodges in the world to be Fair Trade accredited.

We run on solar power, our rocket showers are legendary and our 10 huts have been positioned for great sea and forest views. During the day you can wander around the village – with or without a guide – or you can chill out in our hammocks or on the beach. The community also offer canoe trips up the beautiful Xhora River where kamikaze fish may jump into your boat and Malachite kingfishers hunt in the forested cliffs upstream. All this with a cooler box of beers... If canoeing is not your thing, you can also explore the village and gallop along the beach on horseback.
