The Wild Coast!

During the second half of our mid semester vacation, four other members of IES and I decided to go on an adventure on South Africa’s “Wild Coast,” which stretches from East London, all the way to the border of the Kwazulu-Natal province. It is the traditional home of the Xhosa people, and has the most beautiful stretches of beaches that I have ever seen. We stayed at Buccaneer’s Backpackers in Chintsa, and stayed in tents overlooking Chintsa Bay and the Indian Ocean. It was a very rural and beautiful area where we spent the remained of our days of vacation frolicking on the beach, learning to surf, and horse back riding along the coast.
