The Eastern Cape landscape is extremely diverse. The western interior is largely arid Karoo, while the east is well-watered and green. The climate is highly varied, getting progressively wetter from west to east. The interior can become very cold in winter, with heavy snowfalls occasionally occurring in the mountainous regions between Molteno and Rhodes.

There is much fertile land in the Eastern Cape and agriculture remains important.The fertile Langkloof Valley in the southwest has enormous deciduous fruit orchards, while sheep farming predominates in the Karoo. The Alexandria-Grahamstown area produces pineapples, chicory and dairy products. Domestic stock farming is slowly giving way to game farming on a large scale.

The Tsitsikamma National Park is an 80km long coastal strip between Nature’s Valley and the mouth of the Storms River, where there is an almost untouched natural landscape. Near the park is the Bloukrans Bridge and Bloukrans Bridge Bungy which is the world’s third highest bungee jump.

Jeffrey’s Bay is an area with some of the country’s wildest coastline, which is backed by some of Africa’s most spectacular sub-tropical rainforest. Jeffreys is famous for its “supertubes”, probably South Africa’s longest and most consistently good wave.

The rugged and unspoilt Wild Coast is a place of spectacular scenery.
