Due to the popularity of this event we have 2 Pondo runs, north and south both 4 days, but the entry only includes 3 nights accommodation for the North run. This North event runs from Port St Johns north to Mskaba where you will stay in a Tent on deck the 1st night, then at a River Lodge and then at the Drifter Lodge the last night. The North run do not have a rest day, but the last day will only be 9km and it will be the easiest of all the days. The River Lodge and Drifter Lodges are more up market than the Tents on deck, but all the accommodation are en suite. The Pondo Drifter Trail Run will take you on an exploration of the Wild Coast in Transkei, South Africa. You will see the Cape Vulture Colony at Msikaba, 2 of the 7 waterfalls in the world that fall directly into the sea, Waves crashing against the rocks, the Cathedral Peak Rock standing out from the seaand shipwrecks at Grosnevor. Experience the birth place of Nelson Mandela, run (or walk fast) on cattle tracks above the cliffs with dramatic rocks and caves below and experience the culture of the Xhosa when walking through the friendly villages along the way. This is an experience not to be missed.
