Port St. Johns

Port St. John's is a vibrant African town located along the wild coast of South Africa. Just a 75min drive from Mthatha, it is easily accessible by car, local taxi or shuttle transfer from the backpackers.

The beautiful Umzimvubu river winds its way through the town towards the warm waters of the Indian ocean. Street sellers line the walkways selling fresh melies (corn) and live chickens. On the surrounding hillside traditional mud hut houses provide a spectacular picture of rural South Africa. Women from the local community can be seen carry rice and water buckets on their heads.
