Eastern Cape Holidays: An Overview

South Africa is famous for the diversity of its landscapes and the Eastern Cape is no exception.

Overview

The diversity of the scenery is one of the most striking characteristics of the region, with surroundings ranging from the arid Great Karoo of the interior to endless sweeps of sandy beaches, the big game safari parks in and around Addo National Park to the lush green forests of the Tsitsikamma National Park.

Luxury Eastern Cape holidays are all about experiencing the great outdoors. It is particularly renowned for its coastline, which is a paradise for watersports enthusiasts. Surfers come from far and wide to ride the waves at Jeffreys Bay, and there are many spots that make for an ideal seaside escape such as Plettenberg Bay.

Other attractions include the unspoilt Tsitsikamma National Park, big game safaris and, for adrenalin junkies, the world's highest bungee jump, over the Storms River.

A Note on Price

South Africa’s USP is the sheer variety of experiences it offers (from food and drink to diving to safari), which makes it tricky to provide guide prices. A luxury holiday combining Cape Town and the Winelands could cost around £2,000 per person, while upgrading to the best hotels and including a top end safari could add a few thousand to the bill.
