The Eastern Cape, lying on the southeastern South African coast,
is a region of great natural beauty, particularly the rugged cliffs,
rough seas and dense green bush of the stretch known as the
Wild Coast.

The province's diverse climates and landscapes range from the dry and desolate Great Karoo to the lush forests of the Wild Coast and
the Keiskamma Valley, the fertile Langkloof, renowned for its rich apple harvests, and the mountainous southern Drakensberg region around the town of Elliot.

The Eastern Cape's main feature is its spectacular coastline, lapped
by the temperate Indian Ocean.

With long stretches of unspoilt sandy beaches, rocky coves, secluded lagoons and towering cliffs, the coast is the province's main tourist attraction.

It's the country's second-largest province after the Northern Cape. The majority of the people speak isiXhosa, followed by Afrikaans and English.

The best safaris in the world.
For nearly a decade, a premier Eastern Cape game reserve has been voted the best in the world, at the World Travel Awards, the Oscars of the international travel industry.

In 2006 Shamwari Game Reserve came out tops for a stunning ninth consecutive year, winning two global awards: the world's leading conservation company and the world's leading safari and game reserve. The reserve was also voted Africa's leading safari. Bushman Sands Reserve, also in the Eastern Cape, was named the world's leading sustainable tourism project.
