The Wild Coast is a 300km stretch of largely unspoilt coastline between Port Elizabeth and Port Edward. The area is often referred to as the homeland of the Xhosa people and Nelson Mandela was born in the small village of Mvezo. During the apartheid years, the area made up part of the Transkei, a politically and economically indepenedent homeland.
