Wild Coast breakaway | Accommodation in Transkei | Jeff's Place...
You get the impression that you are in another country when crossing the border. The people are different and the pictureristic landscape at Jeff's Place, Transkei Accommodation is unique in its own way.
This is an untamed & wild stretch of the South African coastline. The community is widely spread with miles and miles of unspoilt green fields and countless aloes lining the hills and valleys of this beautiful area instead.
Having been an independent homeland, the traditional Xhosa stronghold for many years, the Transkei retains a sense of difference and otherness, despite its reintegration into South Africa in 1994.
Traditional Xhosa “Rondavel” Kraals hovers perilously on the slopes of the everlastingly misty mountains and herdsman still to be seen watching the herds of cattle that symbolise wealth here; the Transkei can be renamed as “The land where time stand still”
Situated above Shelly Beach, this is a place to unwind, relax and enjoy true Pondo hospitality. Crystal clear waters offer an abundance of marine life, for fishermen, spear fishermen and those that truly just want to explore.
Accommodation is simple and rustic, offering four double rooms, sitting room, a well equipped kitchen with gas cookers, electric stove, fridge and freezer, flushing toilet's, hot shower and separate full bathroom. Jeff's Place is a favourite amongst backpackers, exploring the untamed Transkei coastline as well as holidaymakers interested in an affordable, budget Wild Coast Fishing Holiday
Cultural tours to the surrounding village, be it by foot or horseback, give one a sense of time gone by. Large pristine forests in the valley's around offer magnificent fauna and flora, with the sounds of hornbills echosing through their depths. Numerous waterfalls and rivers in the area offering skiing and picnic venues, with fish eagles chanting above.
