The Wild Coast area of the Eastern Cape will get its first 'green' hotel which is set to use 100% renewable energy sources.

The new development to be run by wind and solar energy will include a 1km aircraft landing strip, four wind turbines to generate electricity and solar panels on all 23 buildings, including self-catering units.

The surroundings of the hotel would incorporate rivers, bird life and hiking trails and would be surrounded by the local villages.

The 18-month construction was expected to start by the end of April but an access road to the site was already being developed.

About 55 jobs will be created during construction, with the number growing to 134 during operation. A co-operative in the village will also supply the bricks to the hotel.
