About Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape has a natural diversity and climate. The climate is highly varied. The west is dry with scarce rain during winter and summers are hot.

The lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest to Grahamstown has more mild temperatures. Further east, rainfall becomes more plentiful and humidity increases. The interior can become very cold in winter, snow may fall at times in the mountainous regions between Molteno and Rhodes.

Most of the province is hilly and mountainous. The Transkei is known as the land of rolling hills. You can expect to find rocky coves, sandy beaches, and stunning mountain ranges in the Eastern Cape.

If you enjoy surfing, fishing and other water sports the Eastern Cape has some fine leisure resorts and facilities. Jeffreys Bay is an area with some of the country's wildest coastline, and is famous for its "supertubes". This is said to be South Africa's longest and most consistently good wave.

If seeing animals is more your interest, you can visit a game reserve and lookout for the "Big Five". The Addo Elephant National Park is situated 73 km from Port Elizabeth and offers sanctuary to 170 elephants, Cape buffalo and black rhino.
