Wild Coast

I had never been to the Wild Coast as an adult until one year I decided to explore it about 4 times. Another favorite of mine, due to its proximity and safety would have to be the Jikeleza route – this is the “tame” route of the wild coast and boasts over 50 tourism attractions with over 28 unique types of accommodation; everything from boutique hotels to backpackers, this “mild-to-wild bush-to-beach route is perfect for the adrenaline junkie or for those wanting to escape from the beaten” (Discover Eastern Cape: 2018). Chintsa, which is just a short drive from East London has amazing beaches that can be explored on foot or by horse, boasts an amazing brewery called Emeraldvale Brewery and just down the road, you’ll find the Areena Resort where I had the opportunity of meeting Abby, the tame giraffe who ambles around the reserve and comes up for a giraffe snog every now and again. You can travel further up the Wild Coast which just gets more beautiful yet wilder and driving can be dangerous due to bad roads and the animals strolling over these roads.
