This is a province which is held very dear by English speaking South Africans as this is where many of their British ancestors landed back in 1820 with tents and travel boxes with no idea how hard it would be to live and farm in a country that was so foreign to them. For those of you who are coming from Britain to search for your lost relatives there are a number of well-placed centres to start your search, the main ones in Grahamstown being the Cory Library and the Albany Museum.
If you are not interested in history there are still many things to see and do here while staying on the Eastern Cape farms in the area. Port Elizabeth and East London are important coastal cities to visit. If you are touring the Garden Route then Knysna is a must. Although, technically not part of the Eastern Cape, it is just a short hop-skip-and-a-jump over the border. Founded when logging took place in the surrounding Knysna Forest, and famous for its elephant, Knysna has now been voted as South Africa's favourite holiday town. It has long been a favourite, even more so when it hadn't been discovered by the tourists, but it still holds its charm and is worth a visit.
The Tsitsikamma Forest is a National Park where you can walk among the wild proteas and heath, known locally as 'fynbos', and the trees towards the rugged coastline. Spectacular scenery greets you that include sites of the Indian Ocean pounding the rocky shores beneath 180 meter high cliffs and swathes of evergreen forest meeting the seas at coastline.
The Cango Caves are an absolute must while staying on Eastern Cape farms. The caves are well illuminated, some chambers lit so well that the experience is truly magical. Or why don't you visit an ostrich farm and see if you can watch an ostrich race or two, complete with farm jockeys? You may even be brave enough to try a ride yourself!
There is so much to see and do in this province that they are too many to mention individually. However, one place that does deserve a mention is the Wild Coast. It is a relatively untouched and totally unspoiled coastline that is a wonderful eco-haven for nature-lovers.
