The Eastern Cape Province of South Africa is the 3rd most populous region in the country and was once the frontier between British occupied territory in the west and the grazing grounds of various Nguni tribes living off the land. Xhosa and English are the two most widely spoken languages here.
The province is an amalgam of pastured farm land and maize fields amid mountains, nature parks, indigenous forests, and 820km of mostly pristine coastline. It’s an area where modern cities coexist comfortably with traditional kraals.
The Province is world renowned for many things; surfing at Jeffrey’s Bay, the Grahamstown Art Festival, the highest bungee jump at the Bloukrans Bridge and the birthplace of Nelson Mandela, to name a few.
It’s an adventure playground, a nature lover’s utopia and a beachgoer’s hideaway all rolled into one.
