The Top Tourists Attractions of the Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape Province of South Africa boasts some of the most beautiful natural attractions in the country, thanks to its maintaining a relatively unspoilt characteristic. These include magnificent stretches of coastline and safe swimming beaches. The landscape showcases mountains, valleys, forests and plains, all of which are home to a unique combination of fauna and flora.

 

The climate of this part of South Africa is particularly temperate. Summers are hot and slightly humid, while winters are cool, but mild. Summer highs seldom exceed 32 degrees Celsius, while winter daytime lows usually hover around 15 to 18 degrees along the coast. Inland, however, winter snows are occasionally experienced, and summers can become significantly warmer. Read more

The Friendly N6

Tiffindell Ski Resort

Known as the Friendly N6, this motorway transports visitors to another world – one of untouched beauty and out-of-the-way intrigue. There are a number of towns, natural gems and fun activities along the way, many of which immerse the N6 travellers into the real wonders of South Africa.

 

Outdoor activities are particularly popular along this route, since it is so varied and spectacular. The most popular of these include fly-fishing in cold trout streams, hiking, abseiling, horse riding, cycling, and even skiing at Tiffindell (the only ski resort in all of Southern Africa). Those who appreciate culture cannot miss the historical towns of Aliwal North, Rhodes and Lady Grey. Aliwal North is also home to hot springs, which are just what the doctor ordered for tired travellers escaping the chaos of city living. Lady Grey also boasts fossil trails that tell the story of humankind generations back. Read more
