Promised Land Backpackers Resort, Port St Johns, Wild Coast, Transkei, Eastern Cape.

In an indigenous forest high on the hills with an orgasmic 180 degree view of the sea and estuary, Promised Land is just that – something heavenly and quite biblical in its beauty.  A pristine beach, accessible only by river ferry awaits your discovery and with no electricity to interfere with star gazing on the beach, it is an easy way to pass laid back evenings. However, no electricity does not imply that you do not enjoy easy living.  The immediate camp is luxurious and well developed without interfering with the surrounding beauty.  It is close to the only perennial waterfall into the sea in Africa, as well as one of the highest in the Southern Hemisphere. It is also close to Magwa Tea Plantations and hot sulphur springs.  In addition, if sinking into the Transkei Chill eventually gets to you, take your pick from an almost inexhaustible list of things to do:

•    Overnight hikers huts
