Eastern Cape

The second largest of the 9 provinces that make up South Africa, the Eastern Cape offers variety and diversity in its landscape, people and things to do.

From the Karoo Desert to the miles and miles of unspoilt beaches that make up the Wild Coast between Port Elizabeth and East London, from skiing at Tiffindell to surfing big waves in Jeffrey’s Bay, the Eastern Cape offers a wealth of exploration.

The Eastern Cape coastline was the landing place of the1820 settlers, it was the home of the Xhosa people, and is the birth place of South African legends such as Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko, Chris Hani, Oliver Tambo and Walter Sisulu. With such a rich history and cultural tapestry it is no wonder that the university town of Grahamstown is home to the annual National Arts Festival, the best in mainstream and fringe talent gather from home and abroad for a celebration of theatre, music and art.

Visitors to the Eastern Cape  can also visit the Tsitsikamma National Park which stretches along the coastline from the Wilderness to the StormsRiver mouth, and jump from the highest bungee in the Southern Hemisphere are Bloukrans Bridge. For those seeking wildlife adventures, there are several wildlife parks offering Big 5 viewing, and of course a visit to the province would not be complete without a trip to the Addo Elephant Park, home to the elephants, Cape buffalo and black rhino.
