Big 5 Safari
9 Day Wildcoast Explorer
Experience Xhosa culture and the rural beauty of the wildcoast of South Africa!
From hiking, culture, beaches and an authentic Big 5 safari, this tour has it all.
The Wild Coast is one of South Africa's most remote stretches of shoreline. Stretching from East London in the Eastern Cape all the way north to Port Edward and the southern border of KwaZulu-Natal, the region is home to some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the world.
It is a place of steep green hills atop which sit clusters of traditional Xhosa mud huts; a land of windswept cliffs, deserted white-beaches, forests, untamable waves – and numerous shipwrecks.
It is also the birthplace of two former South African presidents – Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki – and the historical home to the Xhosa nation.
Before 1994, the Wild Coast formed part of the Transkei, an independent homeland politically and economically independent of apartheid South Africa.
The area is still somewhat lost in time – a place where hippies, surfers and Xhosa people live side by side, with little in the way of possessions and much in the way of hospitality and friendliness.
