The land of experiences
The Eastern Cape is an area of extraordinary diversity, from reclaimed wildlife reserves and rich cultural heritage â€“ to beautiful coastal resorts and golden beaches.
In contrast to the sophistication of towns and seaside resorts, this province stretches to the quiet foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains and across to the sparsely populated Great Karoo plains â€“ taking in a variety of farms and game reserves along the way, including the famous Addo Elephant National Park. The stretch of coastline from Port Elizabeth to the Fish River is aptly known as the â€˜Sunshine Coastâ€™. Recognised for its surfing and holiday resorts, this area is a beach-lovers paradise. The rugged Wild Coast runs from East London to Port Edward and is an area of
spectacular scenery, thick indigenous forests and rich in the cultural heritage of the Xhosa people.
