Qolora Mouth, Wild Coast

Beautiful, unassuming Qolora Mouth lies on the coast of the Transkei at the edge of what is known as the Wild Coast, just a little further north-east of Kei Mouth and south west of Mazeppa Bay. Qolora Mouth can quite easily be described as one of the fogotten and yet most beautiful of the seaside hamlets.

A holiday here at any time of the year will offer you wide open spaces, good fishing, interesting walks and both a lagoon and wild seaside that invite contemplation, solitude and gentle time out, against a backdrop of a quiet lagoon and a wild sea. 'Qholora', from which the little seaside village gets its name, means 'steep place' and describes the gorge through which the Qolora River forges its way to the ocean. It isn't unusual to find the odd herd of cattle gently milling around the edge of the lagoon, chewing on clumps of grass whilst gazing off in the distance.

One of the major drawcards to Qolora Mouth is that it is one of only a handful of seaside villages in the Transkei easily reached without the necessity of a 4x4. Better yet, getting here from East London involves a pontoon ferry crossing from Kei River, an exciting event for children (and adults too). The Qolora River is tidal and one can travel upstream for around 4 kilometres either on a canoe from the local boathouse or on a motorised boat. Fishing, following trails through the pretty coastal forest reserve, and the option of Mazeppa Bay only 6 kilometres from here, all contribute to a holiday to remember.
