Get lost in a private jungle not even a 5-minute walk from the blue flag beach in Umzumbe. Welcome to Mantis & Moon. Experience the warm welcome of the staff family. Our friendly dynamic, local and international volunteers can’t wait to meet you! We too are travellers, nomads, adventurists, dudes and dudettes who love the sun. By day, you might see us surfing, painting, expand our knowledge, fix and build or cook up a big delicious meal. By night, we sip tea, juice or beer next to the exotic rock pool, while global story tellers share their adventures, lessons and tales of our own lives with people like you.
