Eastern Cape Adventures and Must-Do Activities. South Africa’s second largest province, the Eastern Cape is the traditional home of the Xhosa people and the birthplace of South African legends such as Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo.

A spectacular coastline with rugged cliffs, rich sea life and rough seas offers visitors a wide variety of sea based adventure activities - From bungee jumping off the Bloukrans River Bridge to deep sea fishing in picture perfect St Francis Bay; from boat trips and excellent Scuba diving in Algoa Bay to surfing at iconic J-Bay (Jeffrey’s Bay), one of the most famous surfing destinations in the world. 

If you prefer fresh water, try a paddle trip on a canoe on the Sunday’s and Kleinemonde rivers.

On land, the Eastern Cape also offers something for everyone. Riders enjoy the unspoiled beaches on horseback, sandboarders test their skills on the dunes and intrepid travelers enjoy the views of the coast from a paragliding or skydiving adventure.

The position and size of the Eastern Cape means that this region has a wide variety of climatic conditions. Ski enthusiasts wait for snowfalls during cold winters in the mountainous inland area between Graaff-Reinet and Rhodes and head to the skiing resort of Tiffendell.  Frequent windy conditions on the coast provide ideal conditions for kitesurfers and hikers enjoy the lush evergreen forests of the Tsitsikamma. 

Malaria free Addo Elephant National Park offers great wild life viewing. This park is a sanctuary for elephants, Cape buffaloes and black rhinos. After viewing game in the wild, continue to the Zuurberg Mountains for a close encounter with an African elephant. Take a walk, hand-in-trunk, or how about an amble through the African bush from a lofty seat on the back of one of these incredible pachyderms.

A stretch of Eastern Cape coastline, characterized by lush grasslands on rolling hills, punctuated by steep gorges and intermittent forest is affectionately known as the Wild Coast.  This region stretches from East London in the south to the border of KwaZulu-Natal in the north. As the name suggests, much of this region is untamed wilderness and the ideal location for a hiking adventure.

The beauty of this region is best explored by foot. Walk along deserted beaches, climb hills with grazing cows and colourful rondavels and stay in family run hotels on this unspoiled coastline.
