For this retreat, we offer different types of bungalows and rooms, so you can pick what suits your style and budget. All bungalows are built from natural local materials and are spacious, stylish, comfortable and simple so that you can walk away with a renewed sense of freedom and reconnection with nature. What you will find at Kumbalodge is an abundance of inspiration, connection and lots of soul (what you won't find: air conditioners, tv's...)
Below you will find an overview of the types of rooms we offer
Kumba Lodge has an on site restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with stunning views over the ocean. Chef Adelline puts together a menu featuring a mouth watering selection of nourishing and healthy dishes made from local organic ingredients. The food and drinks have the best ingredients that nature has to offer and are crafted to energise and inspire.
Breakfast will consist of a sweet and a savory dish. EG homemade granola, seasonal fruit salad, yoghurt and coconut milk OR oats, fruit concoction, coconut milk + eggs of choice, seasonal vegetable/s of the day, home baked sourdough bread + tea or coffee

As we want to support the community in Tofo, part of the income for this retreat will be donated. The money is going toward swimming lessons for children that are a part of a broader marine conservation curriculum. Drownings are a large issue in Tofo, as many people do not know how to swim, which causes a fear of the ocean and disinterest in its conservation.
Marine Megafauna Foundation's aim is to inspire a generation of children to understand and cherish the ocean.
Our aim is to hand over the money personally and meet the children during one of their classes.
"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf"
Tofo is the perfect place to learn how to surf.
You will find out that the surf board offers many lessons to be learned just like our yogamat. Don’t get attached to the outcome, let go of expectations. You once catch the wave, stand up and then you fall, in my case more than I stand up. Practice a beginners mind. Be patient and persistent. Start over again and again. Start with the small waves.
Tap into your playful, courageous, and adventurous part of you.
The retreat journey starts already months before we land on African soil.
Starting September we invite you to join monthly group calls where we offer tools and practices for self-inquiry, healing and personal growth. This will be a safe space to connect and grow with other curious individuals through shared experiences and connective workshops.
Everyone is welcome to this retreat. All that we ask for is an open mind and willingness to explore.
