Eastern Cape – Ukhahlamba and Wild Coast

Eastern Cape - uKhahlamba and Wild Coast

uKhahlamba

Where

The area to the north of the Eastern Cape borders onto the spectacular Drakensberg Mountains.  This area forms part of the uKhahlamba Drakensberg  region, and although the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park falls within the Kwazulu-Natal province, we have maintained this name for the area within the Eastern Cape for ease of reference.   This area and the southern portion of the Drakensberg mountains form the boundary between the Eastern Cape and Lesotho.

This region is characterized by towering sandstone cliffs, spectacular vistas, peaks and hidden valleys.  This area has become a premier eco-tourism destination.  The area is relatively small, so there are few sites that cater to campers.  However, the campsites listed here fall outside the busy and popular Drakensberg retreats and are therefore off the beaten track.

Wild Coast

Where

Extends eastwards from the Drakensberg mountains, this region then meets the Indian Ocean to the east.  Hence a portion of the Wild Coast is incorporated into this listing.  The area stretches from the town of Port St Johns northwards to the boundary with the Kwazulu Natal Province.

The stretch of land along the Indian Ocean is characterized by steep coastal rocks plunging directly into the ocean.  The views are spectacular and the well known 'Hole in the Wall' is located here.  This area is known for its ruggedness and contrasts

Fauna and Flora

The area is rich in wild life due to its diverse range of habitats.  There are a variety of rare and endangered animals and plants that are unique and endemic to this area.

Towns

The towns included in this listing are Lady Grey, Barkly East, Matatiele, Maclear, Swartberg, Port St Johns and Port Edward.
