Port St. Johns Travel Guide
While most of our three week adventure involved visiting developed towns and seeing famous sites, our stop in Port St. Johns offered a taste of the African wilderness the Wild Coast is known for.
Amapondo, our rugged hostel with a hippie vibe, was nearly 100 kilometers from the Baz Bus drop off in Umtata. And while most would loathe the idea of getting back into a car after hours in transit, the drive through the Transkei Region proved one of the most beautiful and scenic in all of South Africa. The landscape was rolling hills and deep valleys, and subsistence farms and traditional housing dotted the countryside.
