WILD COAST HIKING TRAIL, EASTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA
For an epicly adventurous and time consuming trip, consider completing South Africa’s Wild Coast Hiking Trail. Mostly undeveloped and permit-required, the 174 mile trek crosses so many types of geography that it’s hard to keep track. From sandy beaches to secluded coves, lagoons to mangrove swamps and rugged cliffs thrown in between, you’ll never tire of the scenery. Book your permit up to eleven months in advance to secure your spot. This region is heavily protected, so several restrictions (like group size and starting points) are in place.
