Bulls Inn - Mpame
Deep within the Eastern Cape Coastal Homeland, nestled in the foothills of what was formally known as the Transkei Wild Coast, lies a small coastal village called Mpame. Here you find Bull’s Inn Fishing Lodge a dot on the map, but big on fishing. Based on a home from home atmosphere, which makes for a unique expereance and a far cry from your day to day city life. This seperates it from the rest. Accompanied by remote and tranqual rural setting where live stock and an ancient people live.
The access roads are your typical ‘African’ roads and when travelled makes for an experience of its own. A 4 x 4 is suggested, although standard vechiles have made the trip!! The nearest ‘shopping mall’ is in Umtata which is +/- 120 km away….
So pack up your bags and gear up for an unforgettable experience…
Mpame Beach, safe for swimming, is directly on the Inn’s doorstep with rock angling hotspots within easy walking distance on either side of the bay.
The Inn is securely fenced ensuring safety of property and secure parking.
The Inn’s entertainment area has the following:
- A dart board and a R2 coin-operated pool table
There is always an evening braai fire going, background music and lighthearted banter between the guests, what better way to end the day?
A number of the preferred rock angling spots on either side of the bay are within walking distance of the lodge, while the more challenging spots like the legendary Mbolompo Point are certainly not for the faint of heart and are accessible only by 4 x 4. (beach law restrictions apply)
