The Wild Walk 2013 sees the distribution of low-volume wood-burning stoves to local households along the route, the families will also be taught about the benefits of using the stoves and showed how to use them. There will also be several days of school interactions with the walkers.
As well as drawing attention to current issues on the coast the Wild Walk is one of the most spectacular walking events in South Africa. The Wild Coast is largely untouched and is, just as its name implies, totally wild. From sheer cliff drops, to long flat white sandy beaches and tropical coastal forests; the walk covers an unbelievably diverse range of flora and fauna as well as passing some the South Africa's more awe-inspiring natural landmarks like Hole in the Wall, Cathedral Rock, the Luphuthana "wall" and Waterfall Bluff. Not to mention the tales and remains of man-made wonders like the shipwrecks scattered along one of the most dangerous coasts in the world and clearly visible along the way.
