THE WILD COAST
The Wild Coast, with its unspoilt beaches, awesome waterfalls, lushly forested landscapes and cultural diversity is one of the world's most spectacular tourist destinations. Protected by its remoteness and previous inaccessibility, this area has long remained undiscovered by the outside world, and today still retains the flavour of the real Africa.
