Travel Tips

  • We urge you to travel daylight hours and with great care for the following reasons: Our roads are not fenced and animals demand right of way. There are potholes which you cannot avoid if you are travelling at speed. There are many small dirt tracks leading from the feeder roads, so one can get lost in the dark. * Be alert for reckless drivers.
  • The Tourist Safety Unit can be reached on tel: 047-505 2662, ask for superintendent Somi.
  • Roads – The stretch of N2 between East London and Kwazulu-Natal, is generally well maintained. Many of the feeder roads to the coast are gravel. Before you start on your journey, it is advisable to get a road update from your reservation agent or resort.
  • Climate – The average daily temperature along the coast are: Max 28 C in January and 21 C in July. Min. 17 C in January and 9 C in July.
  • What to wear / suggested extras to bring; Dress on the Wild Coast is informal, you can bring along all your favorite casual clothing! The only dress code is for the dinning room where guests are asked to wear a shirt over your bathing wear, and shoes. Evening can be smart but still casual.
  • A few other items that you may wish to pack are a good pair of walking shoes, something warm for unexpected temperature changes, hats, sunblock beach umbrellas, a good insect repellent (when walking through grasslands, there are pepper ticks), fishing tackle and beach towels. * Cellular reception: Mobile telephones will be able to get a signal mostly along the N2 and in some instances at the coast. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip.
