COASTAL HIKE TO HOLE-IN-THE-WALL

A scenic hike from Coffee Shack along the magnificent coastline, passing Baby Hole & Hlungwane Waterfall. Hole In The Wall is a spectacular natural feature carved out of a huge mass of rock by milllions of years of pounding waves.

Simply enjoy the beach and your tasty toasties before having a dip in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons. If conditions are right, the brave can attempt an adrenalin-pumping, wave-assisted jump into the hole. The trip ends with a bone-rattling 4x4 ride back to the Shack.

MAPUZI CLIFFS AND CAVES

A spectacular day spent picking your way down goat paths where the cliffs meet the ocean. Venture through caves & hidden pathways and find cave pools, shells to collect and mind-blowing cliff jumps (optional).

Spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach with lunch and a cooler box before doing a final river jump and heading back to Coffee Shack.

ABSEILING BABY HOLE-IN-THE-WALL

Join us as we abseil down a 45-metre cliff drop virtually into the ocean. The spectacular site is alongside Baby Hole and Hlungunwane Waterfall, giving great opportunities for scenic shots. For more thrills, try a cliff jump into the Baby Hole. Drinks and toasted sandwiches done on an open fire are served to survivors.
"EASY' FALLS ADVENTURE HIKE

Undoubtedly one of the most memorable hikes you can do. This waterfall is hidden in the hills 1 hour's drive north of Coffee Bay. The locals believe that the falls are responsible for luring and swallowing children.

After walking 2 1/2 hours through the hills and valleys you have to swim up a river and scramble up the rocks to finally reach the falls. After lunch and a swim, you trek back to the Shack. This is real commando stuff - only for the brave.

CANOEING THROUGH THE MANGROVES

A relaxing paddle in 2-man canoes down the scenic Umtata river. We take lunch and a cooler-box of drinks to enjoy on the banks as we break our journey through the valley.

The trip continues through beautifully secluded areas, winding through pristine mangrove swamps before eventually reaching the ocean.

THERE'S LOTS TO DO FOR FREE...

CULTURAL TOURS

Experience a way of life far removed from yours by roaming the hills with one of our guides. He'll introduce you to his home village, where you can sample the local food and consult the herbalist or perhaps the witchdoctor, who'll throw the bones for you. End the day trip with a session at the local shebeen (unlicensed drinking establishment), where the bravest can try the African beer, and the rest can have a more normal soft-drink.
