If you’re wanting to get away from it all, and I mean REALLY away, then carry on reading.
I’m not actually going to say much about this holiday destination because I’d rather let the pictures do the talking, but what I can say is that there is a certain kind of peace in the Transkei that is difficult to find elsewhere. Rolling green hills that open up into long stretches of untouched private beaches, roaming cows and horses, fireflies, bonfires and stars as far as you can see. No signal, no electricity. The more difficult it is to get to, the more beautiful and tranquil it will be, I assure you, so don’t pick the easiest spot.
These pictures were taken on a recent short break in a spot near the Ntafufu river mouth, only accessible by 4×4 and a boat (we all took normal cars, not realising how bad the last stretch of road really was and had to be towed out – well worth the adventure, though!). They don’t call it the Wild Coast for nothing, hey 😉
Be ready to rough it, but also be ready to find your peace in the process.
