Eastern Cape holidays
The Eastern Cape is an area of outstanding beauty, with a pristine coastline, untouched bush and plenty of sub-tropical forests. The Eastern Cape's game reserves - such as Kwandwe, Shmwari, and Amakhala - are a malaria-free viewing terrain home to Africa's Big Five, while the coast is a playground for South African surfing. Port Elizabeth is perhaps the best known of the Eastern Cape's cities, an undiscovered gem with an undeveloped coastline and plenty of attractions.
