A destination of deserted beaches and exclusive game reserves, home to friendly coastal towns and remote safari lodges and offering family holidays, decadent romance and malaria-free Big 5 safaris, South Africa's Eastern Cape province is well known for its phenomenal diversity. Enjoy brilliant night skies in the starkly beautiful semi-desert of the Karoo, search for lions and elephant in private reserves and stroll on wild beaches whilst watching dolphins in the waves.
