Area Information:
Umtata was founded in 1879 and was originally the capital of the Transkei - homeland of the Xhosa during the Apartheid era. Transkei now forms part of the Eastern Cape and Umtata is still the centre of the region. Umtata is in the heart of the Nelson Mandela Route, established to give structure to the area for visitors who want to explore his history.

The route starts in King Williams Town, where one can visit the grave of Steve Biko, leader of the Black Consciousness movement. The route then moves through Bisho along the N2 to Umtata and the Nelson Mandela Museum, opened 10 years to the day after he was released from prison. The museum is spread over three locations - Umtata, Qunu and Mvezo.

Mvelo Village: The birth place of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

Qunu: The town where Mr. Mandela spent most of his childhood, and where he became known as Nelson. Situated 32Km south west of Mthatha.

Coffee Bay: Endless unspoiled coastlands situated about an hour outside Mthatha. Excellent fishing, swimming, picnics, hiking and dolphin watching.

Hole in the Wall: Hole-in-the-Wall is one of the most impressive landmarks along the entire South African coastline. Created over millions of years by the waves, which eroded away the softer rocks underneath to form an arch.

In case you travel through and need just a place to sleep - Big Five rooms are clean. Small and the bath room - well quite surprising behind a wardrobe door partly open. Breakfast - if no electricity break down - below average.

Just some small improvements could make this place more comfortable.

Had a very nice stay at Big Five Guest House. I was later than anticipated and received a call to ensure that all was in order. Upon my arrival the gentleman was waiting outside to direct me. The room was clean and met all my requirements: desk to work at, good shower and comfy bed. Breakfast next morning was great. I will be back.
