Very impressed - I was travelling with two mates and we decided to get our own spot after a (fun but busy) time at a backpackers. Nordin's is very chilled, you get a basic room with 1-3 beds (upon request, they vary inside), all with mosquito nets, small bathroom with shower, and a sheltered patio outside, where you can eat,...

We drove around in Tofo looking for a place to stay and decided on Nordin's. We booked for two nights but liked it so much we stayed six. The location right on the beach is just perfect. It has a big private garden in front of the cabins.The room has all you need and Bino and his crew do everything...

Our cabana was cute (though quite basic), the staff was super friendly and the location on the beach was perfect. Good deal for that price. Only thing missing was the bathroom door, a curtain is not a substitute for one!

We stayed at Ghost Town, aka Nordin's Lodge, for 10 days while diving down the beach with Tofo Scuba (amazing place) and, while we weren't expecting much, remember it's Africa, you can definitely do better than this place. It was pretty clean (wind blows leaves and things into the bathroom, but it's Africa and we were cool with that), but...

This place is super cheap for what you get. The huts are steps away from the shore. It's an easy walk to town. The bars are just down the street. It's quiet except for the sound of the waves. Bino is great and super helpful.

One step up from backpackers lodging. Was a perfect, rustic, quiet spot for a couple. Right on the beach. Don't expect high quality accommodations, the cabanas match the inexpensive price tag, however we were completely satisfied and had a wonderful stay.

Five of us spent five nights with Bino and his wonderful staff in June 2014. Upon first glance the rooms seem a bit shabby, especially if you are used to traveling around South Africa. But that is just your first glance. Having the ocean just outside your door lulling you to sleep each night and greeting you first thing in...

We are South Africans who love travelling in Africa, but also travel in Europe, so we understand the difference. Coming to the end of an African camping expedition we are topping it off with a week in much loved Mozambique. Our usual camping place is closed for renovations. We were stumped and bummed by this, but in our drive round...

Both myself and my wife travelled to Tofo in April, and we stayed at Nordins for 13 nights. We found Nordins to be clean and comfortable and with its beach front location possibly the best choice in Tofo! Friendly staff, great room service and a lovely friendly owner. The added bonus with Nordins is the breeze from the beach, at...

If you're happy with basic accommodation, you won't find anything better than this in Tofo. The cabins are kept clean and the beds are comfy, the electricity was reliable and we even had hot water for our showers! We were going to stay for 10 days but ended up staying for 20! Bino is the best manager ever and he...
