Hiking, Trails and Routes

ID #1104

Tourism Mecca for Hikers, Wild Coast, Transkei, Eastern Cape.

Apparently the European Union is to support the development of tourism in the Eastern Cape. This support will take place within the context of the Wild Coast Spatial Development initiative. It will be overseen by a partnership of interested stakeholders including government, private companies, local communities and NGO’s.  “Home Grown” tourism projects, with a high level of involvement by local inhabitants will be emphasised.  One objective is to extend and upgrade the existing system of horse and hiking trails so that the entire 280-km length of the Wild Coast can be traversed.  In addition, there will be a scattering of eco-lodges and less formal campsites together with improvements to tourism infrastructure and information facilities. While we mourn the passing of this coast’s “wildness”, we accept that there is no alternative to the managed approach. AATour
