This year’s Feast site is located on the Southern Coast of South Africa in the historical town of Mossel Bay, which is the start on the Cape Town side of what’s known as the “Garden Route”—an area popular with both local and international tourists stretching for about 200km along the east coast to Storms River, and characterized by a beautiful variety of vegetation and scenery.
The Feast this year falls squarely in our school holidays, and with Mossel Bay being a popular holiday destination, accommodation availability might be a little more limited this year, so get in there early!
With the proximity of shops and facilities, and the availability of very affordable taxi services, having your own transport is not a necessity. However, Uber does not operate in Mossel Bay.
Activities: Free time during, before and after the Feast, can be spent relaxing or touring, with exceptional opportunities provided. Visitmosselbay.co.za/ gives you more information on many of these activities.
You can also visit (and like) our Facebook page at facebook.com/MosselBayUCG/ for more of a visual overview, and to keep up to date with our planning.
Travel: International visitors can either fly into Cape Town or O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, and then catch a connecting flight to George domestic airport (only 39km, or 24 miles, from the Diaz Hotel) or fly into Cape Town and enjoy a beautifully scenic drive of about five hours to Mossel Bay.
Registration: There is no registration fee for this Feast site, but a donation towards Feast assistance and administration would be greatly appreciated. This can be paid in cash at the Feast.
For any queries, feel free to contact Vivien Botha, festival coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you there!
