In a remote setting at the mouth of the Mbotyi River, 25km north-east of the town of Port St Johns, this relatively high quality lodge is centred around a large restaurant, bar and lounge building, leading out onto a nice pool. Guest accommodation is in a mix of cosy cabins and thatched rondavels, all set within pleasant manicured grounds. Meals are included.

Activities include hiking, canoeing, fishing, horse-riding and mountain-biking, with some impressive waterfalls and gorges to explore.

- basic facilities
- difficult to include this area in trips.

Mbotyi River Lodge is undoubtedly one of the better options along this coastline, by no means a genuinely upmarket option, but well presented and in a stunning situation. Potentially best suited to outdoorsy families.
