The Pondo Drifter 4 day Trail run (5 nights) is a fully catered TRAIL RUN iPONDOLAND, the Northern Transkei from Msikaba towards Port St Johns where you will run 74km over 4 days in an unspoiled area of the Eastern Cape. Stay at a lodge each night, except one night at a luxury tented camp, with your own en-suite bathroom each night.

We will transport your bags to our remote venues, organise all the meals and make sure there is nice cold beers at the venue each day while you just run, relax and take in the beauty of Pondoland.

The untamed Transkei is located in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa and lies just outside of East London. It is an almost forgotten part of the country that seems to function at its own pace and without modern-day influences. Many tourists and locals visit the Transkei as it provides a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the country.

One of the sites on the way to the start is the Cape Vulture Colony just above Msikaba. Despite the extent of subsistence farmland in Africa, little is known about endangered species that persist within them. The Cape Vulture (Gyps coprotheres) is regionally endangered in southern Africa and at least 20% of the population breeds in the subsistence farmland area previously known as the Transkei in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.
