The Wild Coast, the home of Nelson Mandela and once known as the Kingdom of
Transkei, is a vast stretch of rolling green hills dotted with colourful
rondavels and farming communities that drop steeply into the Indian Ocean.
During our journey from Durban to Cape Town we spent a week riding through
this stunning part of South Africa.

WIld Coast that drops straight into the ocean.

Children of the village didn't pass up the opportunity of a quick ride back
to their house.
On the first day one of the canvas panniers slipped over the back of the
exhaust, only to blow a great hole through it that melted everything that
could possibly melt. A quick welding job later, we had guards built onto
the rack to make sure it didn't happen again!
