DISCOVER UMNGAZI
Discover the magic of the Wild Coast. Discover indigenous forests
and the rugged coastline. Discover breathtaking scenery, crystal blue
waters and the pristine white sands of idyllic beaches. Discover a
sanctuary with a unique history.
We’ve been nestled in the heart of the Wild Coast for many years
now, so we can tell you plenty about all the treasures you and your
family will discover here. There are the expected things, of course
– charming bungalows that feel like home, our sumptuous variety
of freshly prepared home-cooked food, and more outdoor activities
than you’ll find time for.

But then there are the more personal things: sharing coffee and
rusks as you watch the morning mist brushing the water’s surface.
Falling asleep with an old paperback on your chest and salt in your
hair. Seeing a Fish Eagle swoop low over the estuary, or hearing
the cattle call from a distant hillside. Taking a shower open to the
atmosphere of the Wild Coast.
Most importantly, there are those timeless moments with family
that allow you to reconnect, refresh and later, remember. Just
talking about these things might make you want to visit. To
experience them yourself will make you want to stay.

WAKE UP FEELING YEAR’S YOUNGER
Our homely cottages will make you kick your shoes off,
undo your top button and put your watch aside.
Each of our thatched bungalows is tucked away amongst
indigenous flora, on a green hillside providing more view than
most eyes can take in. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself
perched on your doorstep for hours, simply watching the waves
beyond, while birds forage and sing in the bushes around you.
And for those newly weds, let our tranquil, private bungalows and
the breathtaking scenery help you create memories of a truly idyllic
honeymoon you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Of course, you may want to be out much of every day. You could
spend the whole time dozing by our riverside pool, or hanging out
at Basil’s Bar, where darts, snooker and tall stories will make you
feel like a regular in no time. In our lofted hillside spa we’re lucky
enough to have dedicated, professional therapists, if you want
your city stress to be massaged away – to the soundtrack of
nothing but breakers and bird calls. Or you might find relaxation in
other ways; in the gym, on the courts or on a long amble down
our pristine beach; as rich in shore life as most coastlines
used to be. For parents in need of a break, our
dedicated caregivers are always on hand, so
leave the little ones with us and feel free to
relive your early days of romance.

BRING A HEALTHY APPETITE
All meals are fully inclusive. And what’s more, we’re not shy with
our portions - the bigger the better.
Kick off the day with an unhurried River Breakfast as you loosely
plan out another day filled with the magical sights and sounds of
the Wild Coast. Later on, sample our lunch and dinner menus,
which offer versatile meat dishes, fish so fresh it melts in your
mouth and crackingly good salads and veggies.
Oh, and feel free to make requests. Like everything else, our menu
is always flexible and our chefs are more than happy to try and
meet your individual needs.

If you’re celebrating something special (what is it about the Wild Coast
that makes so many people decide to “pop the question”?), you
can always reserve the riverside gazebo for a private get-together.
It’s perched on stilts above the clear, calm waters of our river.
Or try something more “uptown”, by requesting a private evening
in the Green Door Wine Cellar, where only you, your party and a
personal waiter will disturb the peaceful atmosphere as you tell tall
tales over a selection of the finest wines from our platinum awardwinning wine list.
At Umngazi, relaxed dining experiences will form the heart of your
very special coastal getaway. If you find yourself settling into your
chair and losing all track of the time, then we’ll know our chefs
are doing their job. It’s second nature for our visitors to sit
around the tables long after another unforgettable day to
recount stories of fun, adventure and exhilaration.
And one thing you won’t be short of after a few days at
Umngazi River Bungalows is stories. Stories you’ll
probably still be telling when your grandkids one day
pay us a visit, and become part of the family too.

SEE YOU SOON
FLY. Board our comfortable 14-seater aircraft at Durban’s
Virginia Airport. At Port St Johns’ airstrip you’ll be greeted
by our friendly hosts and a cool refresher. S.A. Airlink also offers daily
flights from Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport, direct to
Mthatha. Transfer arrangements to Umngazi can be made for you.
OR DRIVE. From the Cape, take the N2 North to Mthatha. Once there,
take the Port St Johns turn-off; it’s hard to miss. Drive for 90km
through lush valleys and gentle hills until you see the Umngazi sign.
From KwaZulu-Natal, head south past Port Edward to Bizana and
then to Port St Johns. From Gauteng or the Free State, continue past
Kokstad and turn left 15km later onto the R61 towards Port St Johns.
