Jeffrey's Bay

Jeffrey’s Bay is less than an hour drive from Port Elizabeth, it’s a surfer’s heaven on the Sunshine Coast in the Eastern Cape. Jeffreys Bay was once a port for coasters and received its name from the nineteenth-century trader J.A. Jeffrey. ‘J’Bay is a geographic fluke,’ enthuses South African surfing legend Shaun Thompson. ‘It is the world’s greatest right-hand point break. Nothing can compare. When a deep south swell meets up with a 10-knot southwest wind and a medium to low tide, the result is perfection. A pure line of ocean energy that can be ridden for over a mile.’ But Jeffreys Bay is more than just a surf town, it is welcoming and friendly to everyone looking to have a great time.

Nieu-Bethesda

Nieu-Bethesda represents not only some of the most remote areas in southern Africa but also the most scenic and rustic on the subcontinent – a region framed by a stark beauty that provides an ideal getaway from well-trodden tourist paths. This fascinating guide provides a unique exploration of its hidden treasures, national parks and wildlife reserves.

Graaf-Reinet

Graaff-Reinet, the heart of the “Great Karoo” is surrounded by the Camdeboo National Park in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Established in 1786, this town was named after the Governor of that time – ‘van der Graaf’ and his wife -‘Reinet’. It was only the fourth district in the Cape to receive a seat of local government or a ‘Drostdy’.
Known to be a barren and untamed area, it became the outpost of white civilization for trading by the middle of the last century. The picturesque Sneeuberg Mountain Range keep watch over this typical 19th-century rural town in the Eastern Cape. The town lies in the horse-shoe bend of the Sundays River and boasts more proclaimed national monuments than any other South African town.

Her parents left Helen the house. After their deaths Martins started to transform the house and the garden, spending years creating a visionary environment. She is believed to have begun within the house, employing locals Jonas Adams and Piet van der Merwe to make structural alterations, and covering interior surfaces with ground glass. Windows, mirrors and lights further enhanced the illumination inside. Martins also used cement and wire, decorating the interior of her home and later building sculptures in her garden.

Camdeboo National Park

One feels a humbling sense of awe when you’re standing on top of towering dolerite columns overlooking the vast Karoo plains. Particularly so when you find yourself at eye level with a magnificent soaring black eagle and pause to contemplate the fact that these pillars, rising to heights of up to 120 meters, were formed by volcanic and erosive forces over a period of 200 million years.
