The Wild Coast of South Africa

Finally we tear ourselves away from the Drakensberg Mountains, aiming South along the spectacular Wild Coast 4×4 trail. We find a couple of rare wild camps in South Africa right on the stunning coast.

We move from rugged beaches to rocky coastlines, always with the surf hammering the coast. There are hardly any people around the scenery is stunning, just as the name implies.
