The Eastern Cape (Safari) holidays

An ideal place to begin or end a Garden Route itinerary, the malaria-free Eastern Cape has some outstanding private game reserves and a striking coastline where great white shark and southern right whale can be seen. The region’s vast plains, reduced to marginal grazing land during the time of the settler farmers, now support a huge variety of wildlife, which makes tracking the Big Five and other mammals in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles, an exhilarating experience for the whole family. From the award-winning Shamwari and Kwandwe game reserves to the famous Addo Elephant Park, which has the most concentrated elephant population in Africa, the Eastern Cape offers opportunities for night drives, guided bush walks, sundowner boat cruises and dining under the South African stars in a fire-lit boma.
