A wild combination of unrivalled splendour and stark contrasts – very few places in the world can rival the magic of the Eastern Cape. whether you choose to bask in the  longest hours of sunshine on the 800km’s  of sub-tropical coastline, enjoy malaria-free  Big 7 game-viewing, bungee jump off a  216m bridge or experience the warmth of ubuntu in the townships – the Eastern Cape is bound to fulfil your wildest expectations of South Africa.

Seven reasons why the Eastern Cape is a ‘must’

  1. The people - warm, generous, hospitable, driven and hard working.
  2. Nine tour routes - offering experiences from lush wilderness, semi-arid plains, unspoilt beaches to snow covered mountains, bushveld and wildlife, to the splendour of rural Wild Coast.
  3. Food - fresh barbequed seafood, succulent beef, sweet  mielies, lamb bredie, samp and beans, biltong, nanaga Pies, Bushy Park yoghurt and cream,  springbok carpaccio, calamari... there are tasted to suit  every palette and you won’t pay an arm and a leg for these scrumptious delicacies. 
  4. Culture - the Eastern Cape population of over 6 million is made up of a host of different cultural groups, all of whom have contributed to the diversity of the province.
  5. History - the stories of those incarcerated on Robben Island who fought for human rights are now world icons spreading the true meaning of forgiveness. The living legend of nelson mandela, the story of Black consciousness leader and freedom fighter, steve Biko, the arrival of the European settlers and the frontier Warsthese are some of the stories that have shaped the history of the Eastern Cape. 
  6. Beaches - from Plettenberg Bay’s doorstep to Port Edward, kilometres of unspoilt, golden beaches, rocky stretches and protected bays are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
  7. Sport - Eastern Cape people are great sports lovers.  Some of the big names nurtured include World champion boxer Vuyani Bungu, springbok cricket legend Graeme Pollock and present cricket heroes Makaya Ntini, Mark Boucher, Hildton Ackerman, Tony Grieg, rugby’s Brent Russell, Gcobani Bobo and HO de Villiers.
