Experience untamed wilderness at the Eastern Cape! True to its name, Africa’s Wild Coast is an incredible and unique combination of breathtaking coastline, precipitous and craggy cliff faces, wild and desolate beaches, secluded bays and green rolling hills that rush headlong into deeply etched river valleys. Formerly the homeland of Transkei, the breathtaking scenery of the Wild Coast is dotted by charming seaside villages. Known for its gorgeous hiking trails, diverse marine life, including the Humpback and Southern Right Whale, and unforgettable beaches, this is an ideal destination if you are looking for an adventure away from the crowds. The Port St. Johns to Coffee Bay Hiking Trail traverses some of the most beautiful hiking landscape in South Africa. The trail hugs a stretch of coastline along the former Transkei homeland, and is unspoiled and barely touched by development. You will walk along rolling grassy hills dotted with colorful huts, idyllic beaches, estuaries flanked by thick coastal forest and cliffs with stunning sea views. Hikers sleep in hikers’ huts and village accommodation. You will also learn a little bit of Xhosa Language and experience the Xhosa food. If you’re hiking at the right time of the year, you might even see dolphins and whales.
