Visit the Eastern Cape
Go back in time to see a part of South Africa that is untouched, exciting and waiting to be discovered.
The Eastern Cape is home to the untamed “Wild Coast.” The coastline here is truly wild, so the national highway veers inland before the beginning of this stretch of world-famous coastline. Small meandering roads allow you to enjoy scenic pathways to some of the most stunning beaches, bays and cliff tops in South Africa. Take in the rolling hills dotted with traditional Xhosa homes and the deep-cut ravines that have a history of ship-wrecking waves.
This province has been nicknamed “The Adventure Province,” and rightly so. From exploring the coast and un-spoilt beaches, to its many world class wilderness parks, the Eastern Cape is an adventure destination.
Port Elizabeth is the capital city and is recognized for a crucial role in South African history as the centre of the anti-apartheid movement. Learn about this troubled time in South African history and how far the country has come in the last two decades on a township tour. The Eastern Cape was also home to the iconic leader Nelson Mandela and as tribute to him, the district that Port Elizabeth lies in has been named Nelson Mandela Bay.
