The Wild Coast Jikeleza Festival 2014

The Wild Coast Jikeleza Route takes travellers on a trip through the beautiful rural Eastern Cape, ideal for taking time off from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. Labelled as the tame area of the Wild Coast, this fast growing popular scenic coastal tourism route is only 30km away from East London’s airport. Your own vehicle will work best if you want to explore the area at your own pace.

The area experiences warm weather throughout the year, so there's never a bad time to visit.

One of the main attractions of the route is the annual Wild Coast Jikeleza Festival where a dazzling array of FREE activities, performances, and experiences unfold on the beautiful grounds of Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve.

Described as the best family-fun festival in the Eastern Cape, the annual Wild Coast Jikeleza Festival offers an incredible weekend of sport, entertainment and wildlife.

The festival takes place on the 2 - 3 August 2014. So why not make this into a family weekend away?
