The town is nestled between two rivers, the Bushmans and the Kariega, and the edge of the sea. All this water and the warm Agulhas current makes Kenton a water sport mecca.
Just inland you'll find malaria free game reserves stocking a variety of game including the big 5, and further on, Grahamstown, home to the Annual Grahamstown Arts Festival and some of South Africa's best schools.
Activities include fishing, boating, skiing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, canoeing, paddle-skiing, surf-skiing, diving, snorkeling, or just enjoying the waves.
The Kariega and Bushman's River are navigable for 15 and 30 kms respectively, ideal for fishing, bird watching and enjoying the forest and riverside landscapes. The area is surrounded by private and national game reserves for viewing the big 5 in a MALARIA FREE area. Day safaris can be organised at short notice.
For more organised activties, boat cruises and deep sea fishing trips are available while there are boat trips for whale & dolphin watching from nearby towns in season. Eco-adventures and scuba diving are on offer for the more adventurous. Other activties in the area include, art & artefacts, health spas and gyms and riding, hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as horse-riding on the beach. The Royal Port Alfred Golf course and Fish River Sun Golf Course are both in close proximity for that day of golfing relaxation.
A popular annual drawcard to the area is the Grahamstown Arts Festival which is located 40 minutes away. The Festival runs from 2 to 11 July this year and is jammed packed with fantastic shows and entertainment.
