The Eastern Cape is a much frequented holiday destination, particularly for families, it boasts beautiful beaches, safe, warm bathing seas, excellent surf, spectacular scenery, malaria-free game reserves featuring the Big 5 and a range of outdoor activities.
The large western region of the province is the main attraction, highlights include “The Friendly City” of Port Elizabeth, the Algoa Bay beaches, the Addo Elephant National Park and adjacent private game reserves. Inland is Grahamstown, with its 1820 settle architecture, monuments and a hive of activity during the Arts Festival, whilst along the south coast is Tsitsikamma and Baviaanskloof Wilderness area, both a must for naturalists. Of the many seaside resorts, don’t miss Jeffreys Bay, St Francis Bay or Port Alfred, each with their own charm and attractions.
On the opposite end is the Wild Coast. This strip of river mouths, unspoilt beaches, sheltered coves, small inlets and rocky outcrops is untamed rather than undeveloped. This is a region of rich natural beauty but with basic infrastructure and unfortunately no coastal through roads. Umtata, the former capital of the “independent” state of Transkei is the centre of Xhosa culture and it is in a village near here that Nelson Mandela was born.
