Five Unique Campsites To Visit In Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape offers camping sites in popular holiday destinations - in or near nature reserves and wildlife parks, near famous landmarks, on the coast and on popular tourism routes.

We’ve put together a list of five campsites. Some of them provide you with tents so that you don’t have to lug yours along, and others are just sites we thought you should know about. Most of them are smallish, so private and quiet. However, regardless, we know you’ll enjoy them.
