    Default Wild Coast / Eastern Cape Meander

    So my plan for a Wild Coast / Eastern Cape Meander is coming together.

    Plan is:
    • CPT to Karoo National Park (2 nights, booked)
    • Karoo National Park to Mountain Zebra Park (2 nights, booked) Via Camdaboo
    • Coffee Bay (2 nights) - Still Undecided between Coffee Bay Campsite & White Clay
    • Dwesa Camping (2 nights, booked)
    • Kei Mouth (2 nights) still undecided between Cottage or Double Mouth
    • Then undecided..... and need input here please. SWAMBO want to see Hogsback, I want to go Port Alfred. Maybe split 1 night at each?
    • Addo - Main Camp 1 night
    • Addo - Kirkwood side 1 night
    • Baviaans (Kudu Kaya, 1 night)
    • Baviaans (Uitspan, 1 night)
    • Then back into Western Cape



    Please keep in mind that it will be our 1st time to the Wild Coast, so we want to explore as much as possible in the short time. Thus the reason for the short stays. And we will be single vehicle so don't really want to venture off road.

    Opinions, recommendations welcome from people knowledgeable on these areas re accommodation, attractions, special routes/must see areas.

    Just a heads up on traveling from Coffee Bay to Dwesa.

    Took us more than 5 hours in December month. My Garmin was set on fastest route, but boy did he take us on weird back roads. One place we even had to pack rocks to get through with our Fortuner 4x4.
