Road Tripping from Coast to Coast is something everyone should experience at least once in their life time. We look at the Wild Wander (Cape Town to Durban, 1700km) #Roadtripping

Most South African itineraries include a drive along the east coast, following the Indian Ocean to the Garden Route. This famous 300km stretch of beaches, lagoons and indigenous forests is loved by outdoor enthusiasts, with activities from surfing to ziplining.
Vacationing Suffers flock to Knysna and Plettenberg Bay for seaside holidays, but laid-back Wilderness and Buffalo Bay have more rugged rural charm.
A section of the route that demands more effort, but is eye-opening and rewarding, is the Wild Coast. Formerly the Transkei homeland, the aptly named area’s hills roll to rugged cliffs and empty beaches.
Leave the freeway and venture into the country’s most quintessentially African spot, watching out for potholes and cattle between the green hills dotted with Xhosa rondavels (round huts with a thatched, conical roof).
A few backpacker lodges in this area exemplify the local appeal of escaping South Africa’s Westernised aspects and experiencing Xhosa culture.
Nelson Mandela was born here in the village of Mveso, and there are a few sights dedicated to the great man. The Nelson Mandela Museum is in the regional capital, Mthatha, and there are monuments and heritage centers to discover in the surrounding villages.
