If you love the beach and want to enjoy one of the coolest beach bars in South Africa, you have to visit Afrovibe. The rooms are comfortable, clean and the service is friendly. There is so much going on here, you can choose to relax and do nothing on their roof top terrace kitted with jacuzzi and shower with awesome views or choose one of the many sports from paragliding, wake boarding, kite surfing, surfing, fishing, snorkelling, hiking. It,s a cool town, the first SLOW TOWN in South Africa. Lyle the owner is hands on and passionate about their outreach outreach project assisting the local orphanage with sports development and mentorship program.

Room Tip: room 5 & 6 facing the ocean.

Afrovibe was the last stop on my Durban to Cape Town roadtrip and I have to say I loved it! The rooms were clean and spacious. Also a BIG bonus for me was the ceiling fan, as cooling is something that hostels seem to lack even in this very hot weather. They have 2 jacuzzis on the roof top, a HUGE surf shop and they are right on the beachfront. I would definately stay again. The only pity was the extremely rude bar lady!!

Travelling along the Garden route? Looking for a place ON THE BEACH? Like surfing, Paragliding, amazing beaches, partying and the most helpful and cool staff around? Then go to AFROVIBE!!
This place is so filled with goodies, from the exeptional location with a super beach good for both fishing, swimming, sundowners and surfing to the super friendly staff that'll help you with anything from setting up cheap tours, activities and guidence to where you should go next on your trip to making sure you're alright, and keeping the mood high and the atmosphere great and welcoming!

This is your perfect place for a few chilling days at the garden route where you're relaxing at the beach, doing tours and meeting cool people!

Few things to take note of: Since it's located on the beach in a vacation area of a little town, there's a long way to shops / supermarkets, and the only you can eat is at the restaurant at the place.

A friend and I stumbled upon Afrovibe through pure pot luck. Seeking adventure, beauty, tranquility and awesome people, WOW, that is exactly what we got and more! The local gents and folk at Afrovibe were really super kind and friendly. The accommodation was neat, and we were taken aback as to how stunning it is. The bar, restaurant and beach cafe has such a beautiful atmosphere, wonderfull service, great food and beverages. Awesome beach and view!! - Do yourselves a favour and partake in the following: beach bonfire, beerpong, take a guitar and eat like kings;) This to be done after a choice of loads of activities offered during the day, hehe=0P Don't pass by Sedgefield without stopping at Afrovibe!!! We shall definately go again, soon I hope. Natasha and Elmi

My friend and i stayed for three nights at AfroVibe, right next to a stunning beach. The spot is great, the staff is extremely helpful and laid back, and on top of that they invite you to mingle into local activites and nightlife - if you want. You'll find enough calm and enough cool in this place which makes it into a perfect spot for holidays or weekend get-aways. The guys at Afrovibe really manage to create a perfect, exciting and relaxing atmosphere at one of the best beaches you can imagine. Besides, the accomodation is clean, fresh, with good beds and great facilities in the room. Thanks for the stay and keep it up!

After only staying one weekend in Afrovibe I fell in love with the venue and its surroundings. Afrovibe is situated right beside the most beautiful beach which provides the perfect waves for surfing and lessons which the bag packers provides. Afrovibe’s facilities are 5 stars, the braai pits, bar, excellent restaurant, cafe and the hot tubs on the open top roof are the perfect formula for an excellent an action packed or a chilled holiday. But honestly the best part of Afrovibe is its staff. It is full of the most amazing people. They are a great laugh and are always up for a good time.
Sedgefield itself is amazing. The farmers market every Saturday is the perfect place for hangover food or to find goodies and presents. There are so many exciting activities; the tandem paragliding is the perfect activity to admire the views of Sedgefield. The face adrenalines bungy along with many more activities such as tubing are only a short journey away. GET THERE NOW!
