Where the earth curves – Wild Lubanzi Backpackers
It’s hard not to be astounded by the location of Wild Lubanzi Backpackers, it’s all big curves, horizon and seems to be perched on the edge of the world.
It was properly cold the day i arrived … nothing a fire, a duvet and a book in the epic chill area on the porch couldn’t solve, occasionally fulfilling the intermittent need to go into the cold and stare at the beauty of the coast.
Sunrise, the next morning, was a solitary affair with just me and the sun watching each other wake up. Later we were joined by a pod of dolphins surfing the steady swell running on to the beach.
After a few cups of joe and some landscape appreciation i went for a wander along the beach and round the coast with Rahel, the owner, chatting about its beauty and the impending disaster for the Wild Coast if the proposed toll road comes down this coast and the inevitable development that follows, all the while spotting whales and dolphins. Yea. I was having a good Monday.
Some more chill time (Seeing the theme?) and being roped into cooking dinner and not poisoning anyone with a rendition of a vegetable lasagna and with some sublime star gazing i headed to bed. Well content.
Heading off the next day I couldn’t help but feel, not for the first time, I had discovered a place I don’t really want to share or tell anyone about, just keep it for myself.
Yea. It’s that beautiful.
