Situated along the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the Eastern Cape is located at the southern tip of South Africa and offers visitors an adventure unlike any other

Whether on business or on a leisure trip, visitors can transition from the urban hustle and bustle to the rugged, untamed beauty of the region’s magnificent nature and game reserves and unspoilt coastline

As the second largest province in South Africa and an eco-tourism destination, the Eastern Cape’s rich biodiversity offers visitors the opportunity to experience seven of the country’s nine biomes, varying from dry, arid Karoo area to subtropical-type areas along the coast. Adventure enthusiasts have a great variety of outdoor activities to choose from, including the world’s highest commercial bungy jump and the biggest right hand surf break, with excellent accommodation facilities to match

The fusion of cultures and rich historical background offers visitors a different experience. Many tour operators offer township tours to provide visitors with insight into the area’s role in South African history, which includes the birthplace of high profile politicians such as Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko

This truly is an adventure destination filled with diverse cultural experiences and vast landscapes to explore!
