Description

Freedom O' Clock Backpackers Retreat is located in a small Pondo village, near the mouth of the Mdumbi river on the Hluleka side of the river in Mngcibe. This uncommercialised Wild Coast accommodation offers a uniquely different getaway experience. The views and access to the beach and river make this laid back place to visit and is ideal for the nature lover and outdoor enthusiast who don’t mind roughing it a bit here and there.

Accommodation is offered in rustic, yet clean and comfortable rooms. The kitchen is communal with plenty refrigeration space and basic kitchen equipment. We do not allow stock-piling of seafood in the freezers to be taken home on departure. All rooms have sliding doors leading out onto deck with the most amazing ocean, beach and river views. Rooms have electrical plugpoints for your convenience. The ablutions with flush toilets and hot water rocket shower is also communal.

Activities at the retreat include exploration of the crystal clear emerald rock pools and there plenty of gullies for safe fishing and snorkelling. The river offers unspoilt mangrove swamps, estuarine and river fishing and is navigable for several kilometres. Ride perfect point breaks from Tshani point to Lwandile point, both are world class. In-house surf lessons are also available and includes boards.

A variety of other activities and attractions in the area are available like hikes to Mapuzi Caves, Coffee Bay, Secret Beach, Hluleka Nature Reserve, kayaking, bird watching, indigenous tree spotting, surf trips to Lwandile and Coffee Bay.

As the name implies, Freedom O' Clock gives you just that, freedom to do as you want and when you want, freedom to just chill, do nothing, zero, nada. Simply meaning to lie around on the beach all day, read to your heart’s content, just sit around and sleep all you want.

We utilize solar technology for lights and charging of cellphones and other devices; electricity for fridges (with a backup gas fridge) and gas for cooking. Our showers are rocket powered.
