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.
