Activities & Facilities

Your adventure awaits

our restaurant

100% Community owned

The Mdumbi Cafe makes delicious home cooked meals so you can spend more time relaxing or exploring. Order off the menu for breakfast and lunch (cooked breakfasts, salads, wraps, toasties).

Dinner is a set menu affair, ranging from our famous Saturday night seafood feast, to Mama’s smoking prawn curry, to our traditional South African braai.

Let us know in advance, and we will be happy to accommodate dietary needs.

Mdumbi Backpackers supports our local shebeen, so we don’t sell alcohol. You are welcome to bring your own drinks.
