Wild Coast by Drone
We spent a week exploring the Wild Coast towns of Morgan Bay, Coffee Bay and the incredible Hole in The Wall, in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Here's the drone video, equipment was a Dji Mavic Air2 and footage was captured in 4K.
It's rural South Africa where cows have right of way and life is synched to a much slower pace.
It's SO worth a visit.
Morgan Bay is about 100km past East London and is very close to the mouth of the Kei River, which marks the southern limit of the Wild Cost proper. A really pleasant town with friendly people, awesome views and a spectacular hike along the cliffs on the edge of the village. A short ferry ride across the Kei River and we were in rural South Africa where cows have right of way and life is synched to a much slower pace.
The road the Coffee Bay ranges from excellent on the N2 national route, to pretty awful once you get off the main roads. Loads of potholes, unmarked speed humps and an assortment of domestic animals wandering around. Coffee Bay itself is a strange place, there are no “facilities” as such, no shops other than spaza shops, some basic back packers and pizza joints.
Hole in The Wall
The Hole in The Wall is a must visit, we were told that the road was terrible and only passable in a 4×4. Which is incorrect, there is maintenance on the go and it can be done in a normal car. The informal “guides” can be a problem, I found that a firm but friendly approach was the way to go.
Here are a couple more photos from the adventure.
