South Africa - a wildlife tourism destination

Wildlife and beaches tend to be the main reason why tourists visit South Africa. In the eastern Cape we might be a little far from the big centres such as Johannesburg and Cape Town but, this said, we also have some of the most magnificent Private Game Reserves and also the most popular park, the Addo National Park. Add the fact that this is a malaria free destination AND that we can boast some of the best beaches in the country - one can but wonder why more don’t come this way. The Wild Coast section of the Eastern Cape is probably the least most untouched natural coastline in the world and is also the venue for the famous natural wonder known as the annual sardine run.   

There are many useful tourist information guides available but we do pride ourselves on being very knowledgeable on the subject of East London and the Eastern Cape. If you don’t find what you are looking for please send us a mail

Comparative pricing - the weak ZAR

At the time of writing this, the South African Rand (ZAR) is performing badly against other currencies. This means that, to the visitors from overseas, South Africa isa very low priced travel destination.
