Wild Coast Adventures and Things To Do. Discover South Africa’s Wild Coast!

Whether you are dreaming of horseback riding on a secluded beach, tackling a mountain bike single track or a week long hiking trail, the Wild Coast delivers.

The Wild Coast is a region in South Africa’s second largest province, the Eastern Cape. Stretching from East London in the south to Port Edward at the southern border of KwaZulu-Natal, this scenic rural area is the traditional home of the Xhosa people. It is a land of rolling green hills, traditional Xhosa rondavels, farmlands where pigs still roam free, windswept cliffs and deserted white sand beaches. It is also the birthplace of South African legends such as Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo.

Many Hiking and Slackpacking routes start in Chintsa in the south or Kob Inn in the north. Hike along deserted beaches along this unspoilt coastline and spend the nights in friends family run hotels.

The seaside paradise of Chintsa, only 45 kilometres from East London, offers adventures set against a tranquil lagoon. Adventurous souls come here to for the horseback riding, canoeing or just to relax and enjoy the many perfect beaches.

The rugged roads along beautiful traditional homesteads are great for cycling. Navigate cattle and goats as you go mountain biking around the remote seaside villages of Kei Mouth, Morgan Bay and Haga Haga.

Happy hippies, surfers and Xhosa farmers live side by side in Port St John, a popular seaside destination set against the Umzimvubu River and surrounded by cliffs and subtropical rainforest. Hiking, birding, surfing and quad biking are just some of the options in this friendly place that is still somewhat lost in time.

An excellent way to enjoy the amazing unspoilt beauty of this region is on a scenic flight. Climb aboard a helicopter and swoop low over the iconic Hole in the Wall near Coffee Bay and scan the sea for whales and dolphins. The adventurous will also enjoy this scenery on a microlight flight.

Take a boat trip or go jet skiing on the Mtamvuna River near the northern most part of the Wild Coast or try wakeboarding or waterskiing.

Whether you are here for a day or a week, the Wild Coast will leave an impression!
