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 250 km’s of malaria free coastline from East London into the Wild Coast via tarred roads, 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!

Josh and Evie have intimate knowledge of that particular coastline and can custom package a tour that suits you. Thank you guys

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.
