What We Do

Wild Coast Bookings is a holiday package platform, where we use our in-depth area knowledge, experiences and relationships to tailor make a holiday adventure that is truly unique and incredibly special. We handle your booking request personally, saving you time and ensuring you get the experiences you are looking for.

Working with 500 km’s of malaria free coastline from East London into the Wild Coast, we have partnered with only the best accommodation facilities the area has to offer, giving you a safe coastal self-drive holiday experience, with minimal travel time wasted between locations and maximum time to enjoy the pristine beaches, adventure sports, Big 5 game farms, wild animal interactions, world class golf courses, amazing fishing, relaxing spa facilities and some of the best surf spots South Africa has to offer… the list just go’s on!

We got in touch with Josh at Wild Coast Bookings to assist in putting our Wild Coast itinerary together for the 10th Anniversary Season of Jan Braai Vir Erfenis and what a success. Thank you again so much for all the amazing things!!! So lucky to have a true local and passionate side kick!

Who We Are

We found the Fountain of Youth!
At least that’s what it feels like… a place where kids can be kids, adults can be kids, the spontaneous can be impetuous, the adventurous can go wild and for the relaxers… well time can stand still.

Growing Up In Paradise

Growing up along the Wild Coast as a holiday maker for the last 35years, I quite simply could not deny the calling any longer! The Wild Coast needed to become our home. Thankfully, without too much convincing, my wife and I relocated to the area with our little girl in 2018, trading in our city slicker lifestyles for a little Wild Coast loving.

Our Experience

With over 20 years of Hospitality and Corporate Marketing experience, I truly understand how important a good holiday is for the soul and with our in-depth knowledge and love for where we live, you are in good hands!

Sharing The Love

We look forward to sharing the spoils and splendours, the incredibly rich heritage and culture, amazingly passionate hoteliers and accommodation owners and the unique experiences that only the Wild Coast has to offer.

The Wild Coast Awaits

There’s never been a better time to escape the city, travel local and soak in some soul soothing natural beauty.

Welcome to Paradise!

Space is limited to ensure some much needed rest & relaxation and to provide an intimate experience to create those lasting memories.

Areena Riverside Resort is situated on the banks of the Kwelera River, 23 km’s east of East London city center, at the beginning of the Wild Coast.  While still being a conveniently short drive from East London, it certainly feels like you are in a far off destination, with its unsurpassed views of the river, wildlife, birds and surrounding wild coast vegetation.

Areena is all about adventure and as our guests; you will have access to the many adventure & leisure activities that they have on offer, namely:  Quad Bike Safaris, Segway Safaris, Zip-lining, Abseiling and the very Bucket List worthy interaction with their resident friendly giraffe Abby, just to name a few.

With the camp being set up in an area of the resort where some of the game is free to roam, don’t be surprised if you wake up hearing the wildlife grazing near you as the many different species of buck explore the area.
