Bulungula Lodge named Outstanding Eco-Hotel

South Africa has made an appearance on Lonely Planet‘s ‘World’s Most Extraordinary Hotels’ eco-list, with Bulungula Backpackers coming second.

Bulungula is a collection of huts overlooking a remote beach on the Wild Coast, in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Jointly owned by the local Xhosa community, it warns potential guests it is “not an old-style, white South African beach resort”. It also promises night skies so clear, it guarantees “your money back if you don’t see a shooting star for half an hour at night”.
