The place definitely has some amazing views, we had a great time there. At night you could hear the calming waves, we also learned to make proper bread. It's also fun to interact with the people who live near by

About
Description
Wild Lubanzi has been undergoing a major transformation and is currently being rebuilt from scratch. The main house is up and running and we have two spacious Safari Tents with amazing sea view and a More big rondavel dorm with a funky driftwood staircase. The whole place runs on solar energy and the hot water from the shower comes from a gas geyser. We have a self catering kitchen as well as a restaurant kitchen. The water supply for the whole lodge comes from a nearby dam and the drinking water directly from the sky. Meals and shuttles are available on request and need to be pre-booked at least a day in advance. Less
