The Wild Coast is described as the "real" africa that most travellers to South Africa miss. It's a lot more remote and un-developed compared to the rest of the country and the coastline is beautiful. We had initially planned on about 5 days to explore the wild coast but found that after a couple of days it was time to move on. It was very beautiful and quiet; we probably would have stayed longer except that when we arrived in Coffee Bay, the place was booked up due to a music festival. So now we're taking a day in East London to catch up on things. The nicest setting was The Kraal at Mpande where dolphins and humpback whales could be seen from the viewpoint on top of the hill. The food and accomodation were overpriced compared to other places on the wild coast but we still enjoyed our stay.
Now we're heading down the Eastern Cape looking for more whales and dolphins. Our next couple of stops include Jeffrey's Bay and Plettenberg Bay. Hoping that the rain will stay away.
