Jason Frewin, Operations Manager in Cremorne Estate, Port St. Johns

participate in a Wild Child Africa organized race along the coast of
Pondoland covering 103 km in 3 days. We would like to make our participation count and raise money for the community and support the Wild Child Africa course.

What is Pondoland?
Pondoland stretches from the Mtamvuna River in the North to the Mthatha River to the South. A coastal strip with a maximum width of 50 km. It is a mountainous area whose main vegetation consists in thornveld, grassland, as well as subtropical evergreen forests in the humid coastal valleys.
Pondoland is magical. The region and the ways of the locals deserves to be honoured and preserved, but the industrial World surrounding them, is making their lives difficult.
All monetary contributions raised will be handed over to Wild Child Africa upon completion of the race on May 30th 2020.
