Mtentu Lodge is a perfect escape from the rat race, while not being too isolated. Just a 20 km beach horse ride/hike/cycle or 48 km drive from Wild Coast Sun lies the untamed paradise of Mtentu, which is undeniably one of the most wondrous Wild Coast destinations.
With the Mkambati Game Reserve just next door, pristine beaches, waterfalls (one of which falls straight into the sea), and a turtle-filled estuary, lots to do awaits you at Mtentu. Take a canoe up the estuary and glide under waterfalls, go horse riding along the beach, stay over in a traditional village, go fishing, swim in the Indian Ocean, relax in a natural spring pool, go hiking, or just relax and enjoy all nature has to offer.
The Mtentu River is the heart of the Pondoland Centre of Endemism, and home of the Mtentu Palm, which only grows here.
Mtentu has gained the reputation of being one of the most unique travel destinations on the Wild Coast and in South Africa as a whole. Foreign guests frequently comment on what a special destination it is. The lodge is a welcoming place that becomes home for the duration of your stay and staff members become your best friends
As a community partnership, Mtentu Lodge is dedicated to promoting sustainable development and eco-tourism.
Mtentu is not just a holiday but an ecological and cultural experience of a lifetime and is rated by The Guardian as one of the “Top 10 Backpackers in South Africa’s Eastern Cape”.
