Day Zero - Thursday - Fly into East London, and then bus to meet up at the Morgan Bay Hotel. Check in and relax until rider briefing at dinner. Go for a walk to check things out, go for a swim in the sea, or relax on The Deck of the hotel and take in some of the breathtaking views. Make sure you catch an early flight, otherwise you need to make your own transport arrangements.
Day 1 - Friday - will be a ride into the old Transkei, crossing the mighty Kei River on the ferry before heading off to the Ixgara Falls for swim, then on to Trennerys and/ or Seagulls for a light "refreshment" before heading back to Morgan Bay. Total distance for the day will be in the region of 50km.
Day 2 - Saturday - will see us travel in and around the Morgan Bay/ Kei Mouth region visiting some interesting points on the way, including landmarks such as Bayview Farm, The Shed and a few more. Total distance for the day will be in the region of 45km.Saturday night is dinner at Bayview Farm.
Day 3 - Sunday - will be an out and back ride to Haga Haga, a small village just south of Morgan Bay. Some stunning riding, breathtaking views, and of course a stop or two on the way. Look out for the 90kg Boerbull.
It's our final night at the Morgan Bay Hotel, where we will enjoy a last night farewell dinner at the hotel.
Day 4 - Monday. Depending on your transport arrangements, it's "early to bed and early to rise" to head off to East London to catch the early flight home on Day 5 of your Great Kei Trek Tour.
