The Wild Coast

The Wild Coast offers incredible scenery, quite unlike any other area of South Africa. The Wild Coast is a hiker’s paradise stretching from Port Edward in the north all the way down to Cintsa in the south. The Wild Coast landscape is rugged with a raw beauty that is so synonymous with the Eastern Cape.

The Wild Coast hiker will encounter dramatic sights such as waterfalls that drop into the sea, Nguni cattle that roam the beaches and massive caves only accessible by foot .

Slackpacking is an appealing prospect for those not keen on hauling a heavy backpack down the Wild Coast. Of course for those who prefer the traditional hiking trails, staying in more humble backpackers or even bringing along your own tents.
