This magnificent piece of South African East Coast coastline stretches from Port Edward in the south, 600km north to Kosi Bay and the Mozambique border in the north. Once on the Mozambique side of the border, a million sand tracks lead to Ponta do Ouro, home to the fabled “Point of Gold”!
This incredibly wave rich, magically un-crowded, sub-tropical wonderland will blow your mind.
Stretched out over this entire region are beaches and point breaks to match the very best on the planet. The set ups are endless and you can be sure of super fun, user friendly surf all along the coastline. Across the border is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - southern Mozambique. The magical town and crystal clear Indian Ocean waters of Ponta do Ouro will have you smiling from ear to ear, just like the locals, who call this place "the land of smiles”.
With the expert skills and knowledge of our local guides, acquired during years of travel and exploration in this area (a 4WD vehicle is mandatory in this part of the world), you can kick back, relax and know you will be placed in the best possible surf location for your surfing pleasure. Acquired knowledge of intricate and subtle weather conditions will have you in the zone during the duration of your stay.
Spot the BIG 5 along way
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention that you will have a solid chance at spotting most of the BIG 5 along the way!? In the north-east part of South Africa and just before the border with Mozambique, there is a cluster of some of the best game parks in Africa. Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino and Leopard (the BIG 5) are incredible to see - possibly while just cruising with your guide to the next surf spot (giraffes are the most probable game likely to be spotted during the day) or more likely, on one of the ranger-guided game park drives that you can enjoy as part of your trip.
Our personalised surf tours offer the best hand-picked accommodation in both 3 and 5 star categories for each of the home bases in the Durban area, Ponta do Ouro and the game parks. The attentive 24/7 care your surf guide will provide makes this a great option for small groups of friends, families and couples. Local knowledge is key and will ensure you have a safe, enjoyable, stress-free Surfari.
