Scenic diversity is one of the most striking characteristics of the Eastern Cape region, ranging from the lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest to the rugged Wilderness Area, the southern slopes of the Drakensberg and the arid Great Karoo.
The coastline is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Among them, surfers ride the perfect waves, anglers reel in king-size catches, and board sailors revel in the challenge of the wind. Sunshine all year round, fine leisure resorts and splendid facilities ensure that the great outdoors is always in style.
Whales appear along the coastline during the months between May and December adding to the list of attractions of the region.
The Eastern Cape offers visitors a fine selection of golf courses in scenic settings, ideal as part of a Golf Tour to South Africa. A combination of golf, safari and beach holiday is definitely a possibility in the Eastern Cape.
For all golfers visiting the Eastern Cape in South Africa, the opportunity to visit especially St Francis Links for a couple of rounds should not be missed. The beautiful St Francis Bay is situated midway between Port Elizabeth and Plettenberg Bay, making it a great base from which to explore both the attractions of the Garden Route and the Eastern Cape regions of South Africa.
