Wild Coast adventure with traditional Xhosa hospitality

 

The Wild Coast is a stunning section of Eastern Cape coastline stretching from East London in the south to the border of KwaZulu-Natal in the north. It is the home of the Xhosa people and incorporates estuaries, sandy beaches, natural heritage sites, craggy cliffs, waterfalls, and rolling hills, providing spectacular scenery and real authentic traditional experiences... This tour is a top choice for Safari holidays to South Africa, as it explores  some of the best kept secrets and most beautiful beaches.

 

Meet us at your centrally located hotel or the Port Elizabeth International Airport between 08:00 am and 09:00 am.
 

 

     Itinerary:

 

Day 1: We head north from Port Elizabeth (Nelson Mandela Bay) to the spectacular Wild Coast along the roads of the Transkei, and see how the Xhosa people still live in their traditional rondavel huts, with farm animals grazing by the side of the road against the backdrop of the Drakensberg in the distance! Our first stop is at the majestic Bawa Falls, with a single drop of 103 meters (338 feet). It was here at “Execution Rock” where witches were executed by throwing them off the cliff. You visit the Nelson Mandela Museum at Qunu, and then veer off the N2 to “The Hole in the Wall”, one of South Africa's most famous tourist attractions. (Lunch en-route not included)  The locals call this "izi Khaleni" which means place of thunder. During certain seasons and water conditions, the waves clap in such a way that the concussion can be heard throughout the valley.

 

You stay over at Mbolompo Homestay if you want to have a real authentic traditional experience, sleep in a rural rondawel (hut) of a traditional Xhosa village nestled above an indigenous forest, overlooking the Mncwasa River mouth. Be humbled by the hospitality, fetch water from the stream, go crazy trying to count the stars and wake up to the cry of the fish eagles... You also have the choice to stay at the Hole-in-the-Wall Hotel. (D)

 

Day 2: After visiting some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the world, we drive to the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve, which lies snugly at the head of a spectacular river gorge lined with dense coastal bush and forests. (Lunch en-route not included.) The breath-taking scenery along the Umzimkulwana river gorge makes this a photographer’s and nature lover’s paradise. We stay here for the night. (B, D)

 

Day 3: The Hibiscus coast with its inviting stretch of Indian Ocean which sometimes presents the year-round delights of frolicking dolphins and majestic, cruising whales, provide the spectacular scenery for the drive to Durban (King Shaka) International Airport where we leave you, or you consider doing more tours with Amatungulu. (B)
