Explore the natural, cultural and historical wonders of the Eastern Cape


South Africa’s Eastern Cape is home to contrasting coastlines lapped by Indian Ocean waters, the mighty Drakensberg and verdant Amathole mountains as well as numerous game reserves and quirky towns. It has long drawn surfers to its Wild Coast shorelines, nature lovers to its reserves and cultural aficionados to its towns and cities. 

The province sustains seven distinct biomes, from sweeping grasslands to dense thickets of grassland, allowing it to sustain a wide variety of wildlife. The sought-after Big 5 and a plethora of other wildlife can be found in numerous reserves and the famous Addo Elephant Park is a must-see on your trip. The Sunshine Coast is renowned for being the temporary and permanent home of many whale and dolphin species while the Wild Coast’s beaches and waves draw surfers and water sports enthusiasts. 

Port Elizabeth, one of South Africa’s largest cities, is sprawled across Algoa Bay and offers a wealth of accommodation and activities while its airport acts as the gateway to the Eastern Cape’s reserve’s and attractions. Nearby Grahamstown is brimming with university students and attracts hordes of creatives during its annual Arts Festival – the 2nd largest on the continent. The Eastern Cape is an excellent destination to pair with a self-drive itinerary through the Garden Route.
