How to get here
Getting to Bulungula is almost as much of an adventure as being there. The Bulungula website has printable maps and very detailed directions. If you are driving, the closest cities (and major airports) are East London, 5 hours’ drive away, Durban, 8.5 hours’ drive away, and Port Elizabeth, which is 9 hours away. The nearest Wild Coast town to Bulungula is Coffee Bay, which is about 2.5 hours away. A good option is to fly to Mthatha, and then catch the lodge’s shuttle which runs on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, or hire a car from there (a 3-hour drive). If you’re looking for a real African option, you can catch a taxi, where, apart from Xhosa villagers (who speak no English) you may travel with, you may have to share your space with chickens and piles of groceries. The trip may or may not involve a ferry and a scenic walk. Speak to the people at Bulungula if in any doubt.
