Make your SEA Pledge today and become part of the SEA Pledge movement.

How to contcact you.

I am doing some research on the Transkei and was wondering why it is that the cattle are often on the beach? Are they brought there by their herders or do they go there on their own accord? If so, what is it about the beach that attracts them?

Thank you for your help!

How long will it take us to drive from East Londen to Coffee Bay along the coast

Ticks and fleas apparently do not like the salty sea air. The cows come on their own accord to the beach and sit whist the little critters remove themselves from their hosts.

A natural flea and tick deterrent!

They freely roam and especially like to walk the opposite way to the traffic so they can see!

[img_assist|nid=1469|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=320|height=218]I confirm that the occasional cow was indeed spotted on the beach during my last visit to Mazzeppa Bay, and have forwarded a photograph.
Regarding drive time, I include a (5 year old) photo of the road, which gives drivers an idea of local conditions. A normal car will be fine, but watch out for livestock, and be aware that small children often run towards your car hoping that you will throw sweets at them.
The only suitable restroom facilities between East London and this area are in the former Transkein Border-Post at the Bridge on the River Kei.

Good day

I am a freelance features writer interested in writing a short piece about The Wild Coast as a travel destination. I intend on publishing this piece next week on an online magazine called Chillimag.

Would you be able to assist me with 5 or 6 unique photographs of anything interesting about the area? The photographer will be acknowledged for each photo used.

Thanks

Hi,

Does anyone have recent reviews of the Coffee Bay Camp Site?

Lara.

I too have been wondering about this ..... I think they take themselves there. I think it is the cool seabreeze that attracts them ? Would love to know the answer.

Use google Maps. it will tell you the distance and approximate time. Point of Departure - East London Destination - Coffey bay
