The Transkei or as we know it "The Wild Coast" because it's truly wild!!! stretch between the Umtamvuna River in the north and the Great Kei River in the south.

The Transkei is a very rugged area with deep river gorges and steep rocky cliffs beaches with rolling hills covered with green grass. It's very iconic to see these round huts on every hill. The roads are very ruff dirt roads and can get slippery after the rain.
