As we turn off the highway, all I can see as our multi-coloured Ford Eco-Sport convoy plays “follow the leader” is quite the opposite. That is if brown and green are opposites. Even so, it still grabs my attention. Just because winter here is brown and bare doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful.
Every night, the clear winter skies and ocean meld into a void and the lack of electricity in the village brings the stars close, all around us, like fireflies. Vukani has the best views in Mdumbi as well as a closeness to village life. If you want a local experience or have a tight budget, or if you just want a simple yet comfortable experience, I’d recommend Vukani.
