Eastern Cape Holidays

If you're looking for a holiday with lots to see and do then the Eastern Cape is a fantastic holiday choice.

Great wildlife

South Africa's biggest game reserves are all within touching distance and you have a great chance to spot the 'big five' on a holiday to the Eastern Cape.

Addo National park has the largest amount of Elephants in the whole of South Africa.You cam also unwind at one of the stunning luxury lodges on offer.Also, pne of the main reasons people chose Eastern Cape is because of the malaria-free game reserves and beach locations. Many of the reserves are child friendly, with each reserve practically on each other's 'doorstep'.

Mild climate & great beaches

The climate is mild and home to some of the most beautiful beaches in South Africa. The beaches lie on the Indian Ocean, offering the chance to swim in turquoise waters, and sunbathe on pristine sand.

Rugged coastline

Eastern Cape's rugged beauty adds to its infectious charm, with an almost perfect coastline and sub-tropical forest, it almost seems like they are untouched by time. It's home to the birthplace of Nelson Mandela and stretches from the snow-capped peaks of Drakensberg to the forests of Tsitsikamma.

Take a trip to Matatiele which lies in an area that was once called 'No Man's Land'. This area was once home to gun-runners, frontiersman and anyone that wanted to lay low. It's affectionately known as 'Crooks Corner' and has lost none of its historical romance.

If you're looking for a holiday filled with beaches, safaris, history and rich culture then a holiday to the Eastern Cape is a must.
