Budget Travel in the Eastern Cape South Africa – Malaria-Free

The capital is Bisho. It was formed in 1994 out of the “independent” homelands of Transkei and Ciskei, as well as the eastern portion of the Cape Province.

The best time to visit the Eastern Cape is April and May.

This is the home of the Xhosa, and the birthplace of many prominent South Africans, such as Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki.

The Eastern Cape is extremely diverse. The western interior is dry and arid, while the east is wet and green. This South African Province offers a wide array of attractions, including 800 km of coastline with the best beaches you have ever seen, and wild life viewing in a malaria-free environment.

The Eastern coastal regions enjoy hot summers and moderate winters and Port Elizabeth experiences a daily average of 7 hours sunshine. Northern regions are much cooler. Certain areas receive rain throughout the year albeit erratic.
