The Journey: 4x4 & Surfing in Transkei

The Journey is a series of videos from Cars.co.za that takes the viewer on a visual journey with the aim of showcasing Africa’s natural beauty, plus the cars that help create unforgettable memories along the way. In this latest episode, 3 South African professional surfers venture into the heart of the Transkei to surf some of the most remote waves South Africa has to offer and experience the warmth of the people of the Wild Coast.


Poor road infrastructure and roaming livestock make for a challenging journey in the Transkei. A capable 4x4 is a luxury in this environment.

In the first episode of The Journey, we explored Namibia and conquered the mighty Namib Desert. For the second instalment of The Journey, we return to South Africa and take the viewer on an adventure through rural Transkei.


Professional surfers, Emma Smith, Ricky Basnett and Avuyile Ndamase feature in The Journey Ep 2 - Transkei.

The all-new Mitsubishi Triton 4x4 Double Cab bakkie takes 3 South African professional surfers, Emma Smith, Avuyile Ndamase and Ricky Basnett on a memorable surf adventure in the Transkei, where they visit places such as Lwandile, Lutsheni, Mdumbi, Coffee Bay and the famous Hole-in-the-Wall.


Hole-in-the-Wall is a must-see landmark when visiting the Transkei.

The Transkei, with its endless rolling hills, wild coastline and friendly people, creates the perfect scene for an epic journey. The roads in the Transkei are notoriously poor and the abundance of roaming livestock make travelling in the Transkei particularly treacherous.

Cars.co.za would like to take the opportunity to thank Mitsubishi South Africa for providing a pair of Triton 4x4 Double Cabs that proved to be capable in tough terrain and also offered much-needed comfort and safety during the journey. Cars.co.za also extends special thanks to ZigZag surfing magazine for their collaboration on this project.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the journey…
