Discover the Tranquility of Alfred Nzo District Muncipality
The Northern-Eastern Cape, also known as the Alfred Nzo District Municipality, is named after ANC stalwart Alfred Nzo, who was the organisation’s secretary-general from 1969 to 1991 and the first Foreign Affairs Minister of a democratic South Africa.
This gateway district is known for spectacular mountain scenery in the southern Drakensberg, idyllic, sandy beaches of the Wild Coast and a multitude of attractions in between. Bordering Lesotho in the north, KwaZulu-Natal in the east, OR Tambo district in the south and Ukhahlamba district in the west, the Northern-Eastern Cape is perfectly positioned as a gateway district to a multitude of different paths to suit the most diverse travellers’ needs.
The inland part of the region is peaceful and pastoral, a place of high rainfall, lush forests and towering mountains, many of which receive snowfall during the winter, while the Wild Coast beaches are rugged and spectacular. Adventure lovers are able to mountain bike, hike the mountain paths or the sandy beaches, fish for wild trout and sea fish or soak up the fresh air of the area.
Lets start making our way towards the coast...
Let the beat of the Xhosa spirit and the sweet fresh air, ever-present in your journey through unspoilt landscapes, trails and cultures, guide you through this rare oasis.
