The Highlights:
See the Cape Vulture Colony at Msikaba, 2 of the 7 waterfalls in the world that fall directly into the sea, Waves crashing against the rocks and the Cathedral Peak Rock standing out from the sea.

The untamed Transkei is located in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa and lies just outside of East London. It is an almost forgotten part of the country that seems to function at its own pace and without modern day influences. Many tourists and locals visit the Transkei as it provides a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the country.

Pondo 4 day hike (5 nights) is fully catered hike in the Northern Transkei from Msikaba towards Port St Johns where you will hike 65km over 4 days in an unspoiled area of the Eastern Cape.

Slackpacking is a new way of hiking the wonderful terrains of the world! In simpler terms, Slack-Packing is an assisted way of hiking where you have a host who carries the burden of your equipment, takes care of your possessions and set up your overnight camps for you. You can just enjoy the hike during the day and we will sort out all the logistics so that when you arrive at our overnight spot you can relax with an ice cold beer.

One of the sites on the way to the start is the Cape Vulture Colony just above Msikaba.Despite the extent of subsistence farmland in Africa, little is known about endangered species that persist within them. The Cape Vulture (Gyps coprotheres) is regionally endangered in southern Africa and at least 20% of the population breeds in the subsistence farmland area previously known as the Transkei in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa
