Eastern Cape

Welcome to the Eastern Cape

Just a short drive from the popular beaches and seaside towns of the Garden Route lies South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province, a place of traditional villages, abundant wildlife and no crowds. It is more than a Big Five safari destination – it’s a conservation victory. The Eastern Cape is renowned for its diversity of flora and wildlife where thousands of animals roam the reserve’s expansive plains. The Eastern Cape have taken off in recent years due to the combination of great sightings and easy access at the end of the Garden Route. The scenic route and safari is a comfortable trip either way, without the risk of malaria. It’s a different landscape altogether ie. instead of acacia trees expect thickets of low bush and open grassland, stretching over rolling hills. The Addo Elephant park is its crown jewel.
