Mbotyi River Lodge Camping & Self Catering
Hidden Gem on the Wild Coast...
Camping at Mbotyi Campsite on the Wild Coast…
The campsite is a joint venture between the Mbotyi Community and Mbotyi River Camp Site. It is managed by the Mbotyi Camp Site Trust. The Camp Site does not form part of the Lodge and is a separate business with its own shareholders. The Camp Site facilities and those of the Lodge are for the specific use of the guests of each venue and there are no reciprocal rights between the two.
The campsite has no telephones at present, therefore bookings are made by lodge staff at Mbotyi River Lodge. This is simply done to assist the Campsite trust. The Campsite opened on the 4th June 2002. The venue has electricity, water and 24 hour security. The property is fenced and provides safe, off-road parking. The Campsite has been left as natural as possible and the tent sites have been terraced for campers. It is advisable to book a site suitable for the size of the tent you wish to pitch.
