Early to rise for a 4x4 trip along the Wild Coast crossing the Kei River by Pontoon. The Eastern Cape Wild Coast of South Africa offers peaceful, laid-back holidays away from the tourist hordes with enough footprint-free beaches, lazy lagoons, natural wonders and rocky headlands for everyone to enjoy. The Transkei is so far off the beaten tourist track that it has remained relatively untouched and unspoiled. The area has always been a firm favourite with anglers, offering excellent fishing grounds both at the coast and in the estuaries, particularly at the mouths of the larger rivers like the Kei (Kei Mouth) and Mzimvubu (Port St Johns) which are navigable for several kilometres upstream. Launching a ski boat for a day of deep-sea fishing is an exhilarating start to a wonderful day out at sea with magnificent views of the coast. Other activities on the Wild Coast include golf, deep-sea fishing, dolphin and whale watching, fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking and nature trails, rock climbing, abseiling, surfing, canoeing, horse riding, game viewing and bird watching.

Cape Agulhas is the official point at which the cold Benguela current of the Atlantic Ocean and the strong Aghulhas current of the Indian Ocean meet.
