Wild Coast Pop-Up Camp
During 2019 we will run the Wild Coast Pop-Up Camp three times, March, June / July, and then again in December.
If you have had the good fortune of visiting the wild coast before, you can skip this paragraph, as it is just likely to explain what you already know. If not, this is a place characterized by rolling grass-covered hills dotted with traditional Xhosa dwellings. Vast open spaces drop-off into the deep blue, and warm Indian ocean. It is also a fisherman’s paradise, as the shad and many other fish are in abundance as they pursue the sardines during their annual migration.
If you are a hiker, cyclist, fisherman, or just want to roll with the ebb and flow of the waves as they swing around the rocky reef and fill the lagoon, the Wild Coast Pop-Up Camp will not disappoint. The beach in Coffee Bay is awesome for keen swimmers, and their is the beach directly beneath the tents which offers something for everyone, and is truly one of Coffee Bays best kept secrets. It is the ideal base from which to explore this beautiful coastline.
Whilst a 4×4 vehicle is not essential to reach the Wild Coast Pop-Up Camp, a high clearance vehicle is, to slowly navigate your way down the last section of the road to the camp, this is a few hundred meters. Whilst we have had many guests reaching the camp in sedans, this is NOT recommended, and is simply not worth the risk of potentially damaging your car.
LOCATION OF WILD COAST POP-UP CAMP
Wild Coast Pop-Up Camp is approximately 2.5 km north of the village of Coffee Bay. The map below depicts the actual location, along the banks of the Mapuzi River Mouth. The river mouth is characterised by flat beach entry (insignificant back draft) and rock reef across the entrance which diffuses the wave action, making it the ideal place for kiddies to play in the shallows.
