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.
