Where to go
From lush subtropical forests and deserted shores to malaria-free game reserves and adrenalin-fuelled adventures, the Eastern Cape offers a vast array of topography and experiences. Compared with the more developed Western Cape, this province can feel like a different country.
Some of South Africa’s finest hiking (and slack-packing) trails wind along the largely undeveloped shoreline. You’ll find tranquillity and culture in the towns of the arid Karoo, imposing peaks among the Drakensberg mountains, world-class surfing and amazing cultural experiences along the Wild Coast, as well as the legacy of some of the province’s most famous sons, including Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and Steve Biko.
Addo Elephant National Park, and the many private reserves surrounding it, is famous for the Big Seven (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard as well as whale and shark) and has one of the highest densities of elephants on the planet. Visitors are captivated by the Addo region’s diverse landscapes, ranging from semi-desert and rugged mountains to rolling plains and towering sand dunes – all brimming with fauna.
Port Elizabeth is one of South Africa’s largest cities and sprawls around Algoa Bay. It offers a wealth of accommodation and activities, while its airport acts as the gateway to the Eastern Cape and terminus of the Garden Route. Nearby Grahamstown brims with university life and attracts hordes of culture lovers during its annual arts festival.
