The Wild Coast of South Africa entices visitors with its dramatic coastal scenery of steep, craggy cliffs, white beaches, secluded coves and pristine lagoons. Lush, hilly grasslands are dotted with thatched Xhosa huts and framed by indigenous forests with deep river valleys and spectacular waterfalls. Backpackers, leisure travellers and adventurers alike will be captivated by the region’s natural diversity. Favourite Wild Coast activities are the scenic hiking and horse riding trails, cultural village tours, abseiling, cliff jumping and quad biking as well as whale watching. The ocean and rivers offer numerous water sports from surfing, canoeing and fishing to snorkelling and scuba diving – an exciting way to explore the graveyards of shipwrecks.
