Property Description

Yellowwood Forest, 'where people and nature meet', stretches along a stream and lush indigenous forest, on the edge of beautiful Morgan Bay, within South Africa's Wild Coast.

There is a dorm with a porch/deck overlooking the forest, and a pizzeria/tea room and bar serving light meals and drinks (including craft beer and smoothies). For those wanting private accommodation, we have two rustic cabins sleeping two and three, a sweet old caravan with toilet and shower sleeping two, and an artistically built 2-bedroom Cob House with a private deck and fire pit. The shop and ablutions are quaintly yet solidly built out of stone, glass and recycled materials.

We welcome backpackers, families, bikers - anyone who would like to be close to nature for a night, or perhaps a month or more. This is not a 'party backpacker' and the atmosphere is chilled. The owners live on-site, and together with the friendly staff are available to assist with information, activity bookings, meals and laundry.
Yellowwood Forest is located along a forest and a stream which leads to the lagoon and beach. It's just more than a kilometer's walk or drive to the water.

Absolutely loved the location in the forest. Stayed in the dorm and fortunately was the only one there. If full would be quite tight, especially as strangely the kitchenette was in the same room. Not well equipped but the owners were really nice and friendly and would probably find anything you need. Does have on site cafe open from 9-5. A lot of the electric is on solar so little impact from load shedding. Would definitely stay again.
