The spirit of community.

African Ubuntu is situated in the heart of South African surf-country, Jeffrey’s Bay, and caters to fun-loving people looking for an epic yet affordable base. Its a mere 100m to the beach & magical Supertubes, and there are great wave-views from around the house. Whether your dream be flying down the line in perrrfect surf at the point, watching lions on a game drive, or simply collecting seashells on our dolphin-rich coast, we aim to turn your dreams into treasured memories.

Happy Visitors

I absolutely loved this place. The staff made us feel at home as soon as we got there, the room was clean and comfy, there's free breakfast for everyone and it is located right next to the beach. We were meant to stay there a night or two, we ended up staying for the week (plus, you get the seventh night for free!). We'll be back 🙂

From the first minute on I felt like home, that was the reason why I ended up from checking in for two days extending to one week. It has a nice garden area where we used to chill out after the surf sessions and next door is amo's coffe shop, where I got my coffee every morning.
I will definitely go back there!
