Eastern Cape

Travel to Eastern Cape – On the Wild Side

The Eastern Cape, a land of undulating hills, endless sweeps of sandy beaches, majestic mountain ranges and emerald green forests, is in land area the second largest of South Africa’s nine provinces. The region boasts a remarkable natural diversity, ranging from the dry desolate Great Karoo to the lush forests of the Wild Coast and the Keiskamma Valley, the fertile Langkloof, renowned for its rich apple harvests, and the mountainous southern Drakensberg region at Elliot.

The main feature of the Eastern Cape is its astonishing coastline lapped by the Indian Ocean. With its long stretches of undisturbed sandy beaches, rocky coves, secluded lagoons and towering cliffs, the coastline provides the province with a rich natural attraction. For a mix of game, culture and a range of adventure activities, including South Africa’s only ski resort, this is the province to head for.

  • Take a coastal hike in the dramatic Tsitsikamma National Park
  • Throw yourself off the world’s biggest bungee jump located at Bloukrans Bridge on Storms River
  • Safari through Addo Elephant National Park and see elephants at close quarters
