Eastern Cape


A vibrant country district famous for its garden festival ,(last weekend in October)  fun-loving farmers and fabulous hospitality, Bedford is waiting to welcome you. The historic village is tucked up against the Kaggaberg mountain (part of the Winterberg range) and our farms stretch across extensive grasslands and up into the dramatic Mankazana, Cowie and Baviaans River valleys.  Angoras, merinos, beef cattle, goats and game are to be seen all over.

A hauntingly beautiful region – arguably the crucible of South African history – Frontier Country is a vibrant mix of all the best that Africa has to offer. One of the premier tourist routes in the Eastern Cape, it has a turbulent past, with more forts than the rest of the country combined.

Now no longer the scene of conflict and strife, it is about people breaking through frontiers. Frontier Country is the historic heartland of the Eastern Cape and embodies the spirit of the many and varied cultures who met here and made their mark – Khoi, Xhosa, Boer and British. Source

Port Elizabeth

Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage, Despatch and Colchester), an excellent value-for-money-family-fun-in-the-sun-holiday destination, named after Nelson Mandela – humanitarian, freedom fighter and world icon of peace – is located 763 km east of Cape Town, is regarded as the “official” gateway to the scenic Eastern Cape Province and the world renowned Garden Route and is sometimes referred to (by the people who know her best) as the “friendly city” or the “water sport capital of Africa” .
