The local Xhosa people call the Hole in the Wall ‘iziKhaleni’ which means ‘the place of thunder’. This unique landmark is situated roughly midway in the 300km stretch of Wild Coast, between Port Edward in the north and East London in the south.
The massive hole in a free-standing rock in the sea has been carved by the waves. The waves crash around it and burst through the hole, creating a spectacular display of the power of the ocean. The surrounding hills are a fantastic place for a relaxing hike and the grassy area provides a wonderful picnic area to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the South African coastline.
To celebrate 25 years of South African democracy, SA Tourism’s #MeetSouthAfrica campaign aims to showcase the delights of South Africa with a series of videos entitled ‘25 Most Instagrammable Places in South Africa’. In this video you can see why the Hole in the Wall is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
