We are a small, eco friendly backpackers in rural Transkei. We can accomodate about 25 -30 people, we have a food garden, about 20 free range laying hens and about 2 or three renovation projects lined up. We have a small restaurant and bar area with the most awesome views from the deck. We offer yoga, sports massage and fishing charters too.
Our location is about 300m as the crow flies and 900m walk to the stunning beach, awesome surf (WORLD CLASS WAVES) and great shore fishing. Kayaking up the river is a must and will be arranged for Volunteers.
Perfect place to just come and relax, African time applies here in full force. We are totally immersed in the heart of the community, so a rural and authentic African experience is guaranteed.
