Places of Interest

Historically the Eastern Cape is one of the most interesting areas of South Africa, originally the home of the Khoi and San people responsible for the magnificent Rock Art of the Eastern Cape. The Khoi and San were sandwiched between European settlements and expansionism from the Cape in the South and the Xhosa expansionism from the north. The Eastern Cape is known as Frontier Country, as more than a 100 years of war was fought between European Settlers and the Xhosa along the frontier of the Great Fish River. The area produced the internationally recognised statesman Mr. Nelson Mandela who along with Mr F. W. de Klerk brough the New South Africa into being.

The Eastern Cape stretches in the North from the Umtamvuna River Gorge, which forms the boundary of the Eastern Cape with KwaZulu Natal, down the Eastern Seaboard of South Africa, bounded by the warm Indian Ocean, encompassing the beautiful Wild Coast of what has been known as the Transkei, the port cieties of East London and Port Elizabeth and ending in the beautiful Tsitsikamma Forest area of the famous Garden Route near Storms River Mouth and Natures Valley. The Bloukrans river forms the boundary between tehe Eastern and Western Cape and is spanned by the largest single span concrete arch bridge in the world, where, from the northern bank on the Eastern Cape side, the company Face Adrenalin, operate the highest Bungee Jump in the world at 216 meteres.
