Eastern Cape Province


The Eastern Cape has a reputation for its superb eco-tourism infrastructure with a 100% malaria free environment. It enjoys a daily average of 7 hours of sunshine annually. Winter (April-August) temperatures range from 7.1 degrees Celsius (44.8 degrees Fahrenheit) to 19.5 degrees Celsius (61.3 degrees Fahrenheit) and 25.4 degrees Celsius (77.8 degrees Fahrenheit).


In general, the weather of the Eastern Cape is kind to visitors. The Eastern Cape boasts a remarkable natural diversity, ranging from the lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest to the rugged Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, the southern slopes of the Drakensberg and the arid Great Karoo.


It is known as the land of rolling hills, endless sweeps of rocky coves and sandy beaches, towering mountain ranges and verdant forests.


A feature of the Eastern Cape is its astonishing coastline, which is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts; surfers ride the perfect waves, anglers reel in king-size catches, and board sailors revel in the challenge of the wind.


Fine leisure resorts and splendid facilities ensure that there is something for everyone! The Eastern Cape Province, also known as "The Cradle of Human Culture" played a very prominent and important role in South African history.


Black and white met for the first time, but long before the ensuing black-white contact of the 18th century, man had already left his mark in this area.


The discovery of the Nahoon footprints in 1964 marks human presence in the area to about 200 000 years ago, thus making the Eastern Cape city of East London, the site of the world's oldest fossilized human footprints.


The Eastern Cape is in the fortunate position that it is home to the largest land based mammal (the elephant), the tallest (the giraffe), the fastest (the cheetah), the smallest (dwergskeerbek-mouse), the largest non-flying bird (the ostrich) and the largest flying bird (the kori bustard).
Hunting areas


South Africa is one of the world's finest Safari destinations and the Safaris are conducted within the unique habitat of a diversity of high-mountain sour veld, open, flat grassland alongside semi-desert thorn scrub, dramatic vistas and the exotic rock formations of the magnificent Karoo region.
