Why Eastern Cape?

Just around the corner from the popular beaches & seaside towns of the Garden Route lies South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province, a place of abundant wildlife, friendly service & plenty of fun-filled activities.

Experience A focal point of the Eastern Cape is its game reserves, most of which is home to the famous Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo & rhino.

Moreover, this malaria-free region is a wonderful option for families who are looking for child-friendly activities that can keep the little ones active.

Some of the most popular private reserves include the Addo Elephant National Park - most famous for its large elephant herds, Shamwari - renowned for its conservation initiatives & Kwandwe with its 4 award-winning lodges.

Activities Activities along the Eastern Cape is plentiful.

On safari, guests can enjoy open 4x4 game drives in search of big game as well as expert-led walking safaris, river cruises & horseback expeditions.

Some of the family-friendly lodges have Kids Clubs that offer a range of exciting activities, including scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, educational games, DVDs & do-it-yourself pizza nights.

When To Travel Along the Eastern Cape, the wildlife viewing is good all year.

Since the climate is semi-arid, animals are always attracted to water sources – but marginally more so during the driest months of June through September. Nights become very cold at this time, making it essential to bring warm clothing for game drives in open vehicles.
