Zambezi Shark Trail (Southern Natal)

South Coast, crossing over into the Wild Coast

The South Coast runs from Amanzimtot to Port Edward, crossing over to Pondoland (the old Transkei) also called the Wild Coast.

Walk on the golden sands next to the warm clear water of the Indian Ocean as you make your way into the rolling grasslands and deserted beaches. Get the chance to see schools of bottlenose dolphins playing in the waves.

If you are lucky enough to see the annual sardine run during winter, you will see various predators competing to get their share of the little fish. A truly once in a lifetime experience!

Continue walking in the historical footsteps of early English settlers as they ventured from Natal into Pondoland territory on their way to the Cape by crossing over onto the beautiful scenery of the Wild Coast.

This area is known as the Wild Coast for good reason as the treacherous coast line with its giant waves crashing alongside the rocky cliff faces, is littered with wrecks of years gone by.

The Transkei, now known as Pondoland, was also the birthplace of the Xhosa people. On many of the beaches, you still find cows, wildebeest and zebras walking on the beach.
