Eastern Cape

One of the most diverse regions of South Africa, the Eastern Cape encompasses much of the semi-arid greater Karoo, Tsitsikamma Forest, the Garden Route and a number of bustling towns, including Port Elizabeth and Graaff-Reinet. Inland, you'll find several malaria-free safari reserves, including Addo, Shamwari and Kwande.
