We had an amazing time at Mdumbi Backpackers over their Mdumbi Green Fair! The backpackers is perfectly situated to just wonder down to the festival grounds but also having space to be in a chilled vibe and time to rest. Make sure you book their dorms or camping early as it fills up fast. Bring your own coffee and breakfast as they serve the bands first so you might wait a while.
We visited the backpackers a few times during the year and its always amazing. The beach and surf are fantastic and Johann the owner will often sit down for a drink with you and tell stories of the Wild Coast. He also does boat trips around the coastline where you can see whales and dolphins from May through till November, a must do trip if he is going out that day. They are also along the hiking trails to Port St Johns or direction Coffee Bay, Wild Lubanzi or Bulungula. You can book a guide through the backpackers. The shuttle is also easy to arrange from Coffee Bay.
A must visit when you are on the Wild Coast!More
