IN OTHER WORDS

go! - - Hike Wild Coast -

Dian Wes­sels, graphic de­signer, Stel­len­bosch “Take at least two bot­tles of wa­ter and fill them when­ever you can. The spaza shops are of­ten far apart. If you don’t bring your own food for lunch you’ll have to sur­vive on Bigga Naks and Fizz Pops.”

Le Roux Schoe­man, videog­ra­pher, Cape Town “High­lights for me in­cluded things like hun­dreds of small crabs scur­ry­ing along a mud bank in a man­grove for­est, the de­serted beach at Hluleka and a chance en­counter with a lo­cal run­ner train­ing for his umpteenth Com­rades Marathon on a dirt road at dusk. “When I paged through the vis­i­tors’ books, pre­vi­ous hik­ers had noth­ing but kind words to say about the hosts, the food and the ac­com­mo­da­tion.”

Liezel van Beek, en­tre­pre­neur, Stel­len­bosch “The Wild Coast taught me that you can be sat­is­fied even if you have very lit­tle. Next time I’ll take some small gifts along for the var­i­ous host fam­i­lies – func­tional things like a bot­tle opener or a serv­ing spoon.”
