This is rural Africa at her best! In a small Pondo village named Entwebeni, Mngcibe you will find Freedom More O Clock. Freedom O Clock is owned and managed by Otto, Lu and little Coral- Bella, who all have a great love for nature and the ocean. Your surroundings offer you accommodation situated in a rural and remote area.....Faaaar away from the maddening crowds. Situated near the mouth of the insanely beautiful Mdumbi River in a remote and primitive region of the Wild Coast we offer holiday, backpacking accommodation. Surfing, fishing, river trips, boat hire, canoeing, hiking and biking, snorkeling, bird watching, and horse rides are just to mention a few activities to busy your day.... Or just RELAX! The views and access to the beach and river makes this an ideal 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. Our accommodation offers commanding views of the ocean, river, rolling green hills and Tshani point with its perfect right hander and beach breaks! We can accommodate up to 14 guests indoors and 12 guests (3 sites) camping at one time. Accommodation is basic, rustic, clean and comfortable and we offer a catered or self-catered option. We also offer camping facilities and we are pet friendly (do check before hand though that your pet is suited to the environment). Less
