m_1016_copyb.jpgDay 1, Night 1

Port Elizabeth/East London to the Wild Coast

Meet and greet by Alan Tours at 8:30 am at your place of residence and depart for the Wild Coast.

Travelling through picturesque countryside towards the coast we enter into the Old Transkei, an independent state under the apartheid government. Arriving in the area we take a quick lunch break, where we can try a traditional mielie cooked on the open fire or a more conventional lunch at the Kei River Bridge.

We continue into the traditional homeland of the AmaXhosa, where rural communities live in picturesque, brightly coloured houses and thatched huts spread out over the Hills and Valleys that characterise this landscape. Getting closer to our destination we branch off the main road and enter a landscape dominated by evergreen tea plantation that cover the rolling hills before descending down through temperate forests to our coastal Lodge on the banks of a river estuary on the Wild Coast, where we check into accommodation for a peaceful night in these pristine surroundings with the sound of the Indian Ocean to put you to sleep.

Wild Coast

Wake early and watch the sun rise up over the Indian Ocean before a satisfying breakfast in the dining room with its views over the river and the ocean beyond.

Set out to explore the nearby beach or go bird watching on the banks of the river or wonder into the nearby forest. Keep a look out for the Knysna Turacos and the elusive Narina Trogon amongst the many jewels in this semi wilderness area. Take a packed lunch or return for relaxing lunch in the dining room or simply chill out at the pool patio overlooking the Ocean.  Take a walk on the beach or head for the hills and mingle amongst the locals or try your luck at this famous fishing spot. Return to the lodge for dinner with the sounds of the surf on the nearby beach and a restful night’s sleep in these peaceful surroundings.

Day 3, Night 3

Wild Coast

After breakfast, we meet our local guide for a drive and then hike to a number of waterfalls including one that falls spectacularly from the cliffs directly into the Indian Ocean. Drive through the Tea estate to view the smaller waterfalls before we descend the rugged and picturesque escarpment.

Arriving at a local homestead, we leave the vehicle to continue on foot through spectacular countryside. Walk on the very edge of the continent overlooking the deep Blue Ocean; watch the arrival of distant swells as they explode on the shoreline sending plumes of bright white spray 30 meters or more into the salt laden sea air. This is a coastal wonderland hiking over tinkling streams and pristine pools through rolling grassland, above precipitous cliffs.

On reaching the Waterfall, we admire the views and unpack a delicious picnic before returning along the path to our vehicle and the lodge for a well-deserved meal and a good night’s rest.
