The Eastern Cape was formed in 1994 by incorporating areas of the former Xhosa homelands, namely Transkei and Ciskei together with what was previously parts of the Cape Province. Bisho is the capital city, but the largest city in the Eastern Cape is Port Elizabeth which is part of the Nelson Mandela metropolis.

The Eastern Cape is an area rich with culture for it is the home of legends. Former Presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabi Mbeki was born and raised in this province as well as many other prominent South African politicians.

This region gets wetter from west to east. In-land is semi Karoo and it changes to lush, green hill pastures along the beautiful stretches of beach all along the coast. In the east the rolling green hills gets punctuated by deep gorges and forests.

The climate varies from icy cold winters to scalding hot summers. Heavy snowfall during the winter are a major attraction of this area and is the reason for Tiffendell, South Africa’s only ski resort, to being situated in this region.

Although The Eastern Cape is one of the poorest regions in South Africa, there are still many attractions and tourists find it an amazing region to visit for various reasons: Langkloof Valley in the southeast has enormous fruit orchards and the fruit supplies local demand as well as being sent oversees.

The Addo National Park is home to 170 elephants, 400 buffalo and 21 very scares black rhino.

The National arts festival, held annually in Grahamstown, is Africa’s largest and most colourful cultural event and attracts thousands of people from all over the world. The Bloukrans bridge bungee is found to the south-east and is the third highest bungee jump in the world.

Jeffrey’s Bay is world famous for its “supertubes” – South Africa’s longest and most consistent “good waves”. Jeffrey’s Bay is a surfers paradise and has a relaxed, surfer vibe. The Wild Coast – rugged and unspoilt – beautiful and earthy - attracts thousands of people for finding themselves by going back to the basics and nature.

Beautiful nature, rich Xhosa culture and unspoilt land with splashes of adventure thrown in – that is The Eastern Cape.
