Portfolio offers a wonderful range of Eastern Cape accommodation. This, the second largest province in South Africa, is a paradise of beautiful beaches, indigenous mountain forests and rugged semi-desert. It is the perfect place to go hiking, see the Big 5 in malaria-free safari lodges or simply soak up the sun and natural beauty.
It is also an area of great cultural and historic interest. It was here that much of South Africa’s history was forged in a series of clashes between different cultures including the Frontier Wars of the nineteenth century. Nelson Mandela was born in a rural Eastern Cape village in 1918.
Eastern Cape Highlights
The friendly and central city of Port Elizabeth.
Glorious beaches and nature of the Sunshine Coast (between St Francis Bay and East London) including the world-famous surfing mecca of Jeffrey's Bay.
Game viewing of the “Big 5” at the Addo Elephant Park and private game reserves.
Lush sub-tropical rolling hills, traditional villages and secluded beaches of the Wild Coast.
Karoo desert scenery and nature including the majestic Valley of Desolation.
Charming, historic Karoo towns such as Graaff Reinet and Ladysmith.
The indigenous forests and beauty of the Amatola mountains.
Our Portfolio of Eastern Cape Accommodation
Port Elizabeth is a good base from which to explore the region, and you can book a selection of quality, personally assessed establishments here, ranging from superb value B&B’s to upmarket boutique hotels. Your choice in other big centres like East London and Graaff-Reinet is similarly varied.
We recommend our charming country guest houses and retreats for a relaxing break, including several close to the Addo Elephant Park. Safari lodges in the Eastern Cape offer luxurious malaria-free accommodation and game viewing which can compete with the best in the country.
