EXPLORE Port St Johns

Port St Johns is a town situated along the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape with old but grand colonial infrastructure. 



Unspoilt natural beauty is what the small town of Port St. Johns offers travellers. It lies at the mouth of the Umzimvubu River that flows through the Gates of St. Johns gorge into an estuary at the Indian Ocean. On both sides of the river rests two mountains, the Thesiger and the Sullivan Mountains, providing amazing views of the town. There are travertine deposits just outside Port St. Johns that to and from Port St Johns and are definitely worth the time to stop and be viewed. The scenery, in general, is possibly the most dramatic scenery that one can encounter along the Wild Coast for it harbours deep gorges, glorious and thick forests, mangrove swamps and waves that crash along the coastline of marvellous beaches, having caused many shipwrecks over time.

There are numerous walking trails where visitors can explore over 250 bird species that find shelter here. Guided tours in the Pondo village can be taken that present opportunities to explore various cultures that exist here. There are a variety of activities to suit everyone and include activities such as hiking, fishing, canoeing and horse riding for the outdoors types, cliff jumping for the adventurous and dolphin and whale watching for those seeking a relaxed and tranquil activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
