Whilst sipping your Indian Chai or fresh coffee, watch the Sangormas perform their rituals, Cows basking in the sun, local children playing on the shore or view the whales in the distance breaching.
Take a short hike to the local water fall, the famous Blow Hole, visit the local community projects or hike to Silaka Nature Reserve. If you have thighs of steel, rent our mountain bikes and cycle along the rolling hills of the Trans Kei.
Alternatively you can start you day with a session of Yoga or Pilates held by our qualified guide. Then in the afternoon take a short drive to the natural and traditional Mud Caves where you can cover yourself in the magical mud and drink the local sulfur water to cleanse your body. Finish the day with a massage from our qualified massage and Physiotherapist.
If the Sardine Run season is taking place, take a rubber boat out to see the action so close you can almost touch the marine life. You can also book scuba diving and snorkeling experiences, weather permitting.
Before the sun sets, take a short drive to the local Airstrip with a few cold beers in hand, you can watch the stunning view from the top of Mount Thesiger.
