Despite its secluded setting, East London and Mthatha are a short drive away, making it easily accessible.

This is the perfect destination for a peaceful getaway to experience the rural side of South Africa. Guests can enjoy wandering around the village and have the option of taking a guide with them. The locals love to interact with guests and can help them with face painting, brick-making, maize stamping, traditional food preparation, beer brewing, and firewood collecting. In addition, local fishermen are happy to show glampers how to catch fish with their traditional methods and even how to make a fishing rod from wood and wire. Glampers will also adore the impressive beaches just a short distance away that are wonderful for swimming and sunbathing.
Guests that are at the property mid-month are invited to attend the amazing two-day uHube party where the whole village gathers to dance and celebrate. The community also offers canoe trips up the beautiful Xhora River, where kamikaze fish may jump into guests' boat!
