Your world in one place

Kei Mouth, Wild Coast, Eastern Cape

The spectacular Great Kei river mouth on the Wild Coast, Eastern CapeThe Great Kei river is one of the most celebrated rivers in the Eastern Cape, both for its history with the Xhosa people and for the beauty and adventure that it offers to holiday makers on the Wild Coast. Kei Mouth then, is the perfect place to holiday on the Wild Coast, situated at the mouth of the Great Kei as it enters the Indian Ocean. These two great natural spectacles form a place of stunning beauty and divine tranquility, making Kei Mouth the popular holiday spot that it is.

Long walks on the beach that weave through the indigenous coastal forest and fynbos are a highlight, as is enjoying a relaxing paddle in the river mouth. There are endless fun and adventurous things to do at Kei Mouth, but there is one thing of which you can be guaranteed on any stay here, and that is peace and tranquility; it remains one of the Wild Coast’s most secluded and peaceful holiday spots.

It is also home to one of the only remaining pontoon river-ferry services in South Africa, and for a bit of fun you can take your car across the Great Kei on the ‘Pont’ and explore a bit of the rugged Transkei coast.  Crossing the river is also the quickest way to get to the Kei Mouth State Reserve, which lies on the banks of the Great Kei river and on the Transkei’s sheer and magnificent coastal cliif line.

Getting there: from East London, take the N2 going towards Umtata. Turn off at the R349. Keep left at the split and stay on the R349 all the way into the town of Kei Mouth.
