The Kraal Eco Lodge is one of those rare finds along the Wild Coast. We are situated in an exclusive cleft between two hills facing the Indian ocean. From anywhere at the lodge you can witness the morning routine of our local superpod of dolphins. Established 20 years ago with nothing but an idea to build a self sustaining, eco-friendly lodge that runs and eats from a successful perma-culture garden. Knowing that idea's don't build themselves, we rolled up our sleeves and built our dream from the ground up. If you get the chance ask Dillion, the owner, about anything to do with living self sustainably, grab an ice one from the bar, and enjoy the knowledge shared. We live and work by a simple ethos, don't be a doosh, be lekker. It's simple and easy to remember so please, #goodvibes only.

This is a special place and if you don't mind roughing it, you are in for a treat. Dillon's place is off the grid and you feel like you have arrived at the end of the world, and it is a beautiful place to be! Accomodation is in a dorm or rondavel and also great soft grassed tent sites. The Kraal is off the grid so all water is provided from rain cisterns. Toilets are septic. Solar power heats water and powers basic lighting. Put away your cell phone and appreciate Nature's gifts. Lovely pet dogs. It felt more as if we were guests sharing Dillon's home. He is a great guy and kept us entertained with his stories. Wood fired oven (great pizzas) and sauna. Call to the whales and dolphins and maybe they will come. Great rock pools for protected swimming. Thanks Dillon! Come visit
