Day 1 (3rd August 2019)

We will meet at Southgate Spar, PMB at 5:30am to leave by 6:00am. Please do not be late.

We travel via the R56 , N2, R349 to Morgan's Bay. We will be staying at Double Mouth Campsite just outside Morgan's Bay. We will stop en route for breakfast, lunch, and fuel.

Day 2 (4th August 2019)

We have breakfast and pack up camp to leave by 9am. We proceed to the Great Kei River at Kei Mouth and cross the Kei River by ferry. The 2018 fee was R90 per vehicle, so suggest to have a bit more cash on hand. We then proceed along the 'unofficial' Wild Coast 4x4 Eco Route to Trennery's for the night. Along the way we'll look for the wreck of the Jacaranda

Day 3 (5th August 2019)

Once again we have to pack up and leave by 9am. Today we again travel on the 'unofficial' Wild Coast 4x4 Eco Route to Dwesa Nature Reserve. We will visit the Cebe Community Camp (we were going stay here, but it is either closed or destroyed or both) and Mazzepa Bay.

Day 4 (6th August 2019)

We stay at Dwesa for two nights, so today is a day of leisure. We'll most likely do a guided tour of the reserve, the whale skeleton and the wreck of the  O'Bell.

Day 5 (7th August 2019)

Back on the road again and we travel towards our next stop which is Hole in the Wall. We stay at White Clay Campsite.

Day 6 (8th August 2019)

We stay at White Clay for two nights, giving us a chance to see the 'Hole!' and other sights nearby!

Day 7 (9th August 2019)

Pack up time again, as we head for Port St John's. Along the way we will explore the Mapuzi Caves, Umthatha Mouth, and the shipwreck Astor. The Wild Coast 4x4 Eco trail ends at Port St John's. Once we get to Port St John's we'll travel up to the airstrip for great views of the area.

Day 8 (10th August 2019)

We're off to Mboyti today. Some tar driving. We'll explore the area between Port St John's and the Mkhambathi Nature Reserve, before setting up camp at Mboyti.

Day 9 (11th August 2019)

Sadly our trip is nearing it's end. We leave for home.
