The one and only Coffee Bay in SA

A travel blog entry by nicoleontour


Die Strecke nach Coffee Bay verlief ueber die N2, wo es haeufig zu sehr schlimmen Unfaellen fuehren kann.
Wenn wir mal wieder ueber Farben sprechen wollen, dann kann ich berichten, dass an der Wild Coast ueberwiegend nur schwarze Menschen leben. Man spuert mehr das Afrika, was mir persoenlich sehr gut gefallen hat.
An Zuckerrohrplantagen …

The trip to Coffee Bay was along a road full of pot holes which made for a bumpy road. Upon arrival you have one of the most amazing views over the bay, with houses dotted around and a clump of backpackers at the bottom.
The Backpackers that we stayed in, I had stayed in before. I was in for a shock as it looked exactly the same (probably even …

Jag tar en tur med chevan ut till Hole in the wall (byn heter faktiskt så). Jag hade tänkt vandra, men förkylningen ger inte med sig. Grusvägen dit är hålig och backig. Kusten är vacker med många gröna kullar varpå Xhosa-stammens färgglada hus ligger. Det är runda tegelhus med lerfasad och tak av vass. Oftast är de turkosfärgade eller orange. Dom …

Cut a log and carve a boat

A travel blog entry by katherine-anne

This is a top pick!

We are stranded, Ntokoze, Terron and me.
We left Hluleka early, wanting to reach Coffee Bay before dark. It was going to be a long haul. After some brisk walking we reached the river Tagaji, well in time.

Wild coast

    the place looks tired it needs a face lift. The owner and workers are lovely but not satisfied with a few things. Our food was eaten out of the fridge and they didnt do anything about it, we booked tours the night before but when we went at the time requested they still hadnt booked anything and had to ring around (occured more than once). Room was nice.
