Eastern Cape is quite possibly one of our most beautiful provinces, yet quite undiscovered and infrequently travelled to. It has a wide mix of places to visit from the coastal cities such as Port Elizabeth and East London to the more vacation driven towns such as Cape St Francis and Coffee Bay; then heading inland to discover some beautiful, sometimes arid destinations of Graaf-Reinet and Cradock - known for some beautiful hiking trails and 4x4 routes.
Recently it has started offering more dog-friendly places, including a few restaurants and accommodations, but most of the nature reserves are still not allowing dogs. Luckily many 0f the places you'll stay more north, away from the coast, usually offers their own hiking trails, whereas coastal towns are a bit more tolerant due to their more touristy nature.
We like to choose where to go based on what it has to offer us and the experience. Eastern Cape choose from beach town getaways or more rural farm stays in-land.
Some of our favourite destinations include: Cape St Francis Bay, Coffee Bay, Grahamstown and Cradock.
|Out & About||Generally establishments around the Eastern Cape are quite open to receiving smaller, well-behaved pets as they're so used to people using it as a stop-over destination en-route further north (or south), but do check with the establishment prior to your arrival.|
