Eastern Cape offers plenty of tours and trips to the adventurous visitor.

The Eastern Cape is an area of remarkable natural diversity that includes the lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest, the rugged Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, the breath-taking southern slopes of the Drakensberg and the arid Great Karoo. Known as the land of rolling hills, the region is filled with endless sweeps of rocky coves and sandy beaches, towering mountain ranges and verdant forests and offers plenty of tours and trips to the adventurous visitor. Known for its astonishing coastline, the Eastern Cape is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. The region also boasts a deep cultural heritage and is the birthplace of many prominent South Africans, including Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Thabo Mbeki.

While not commonly considered a safari destination, the Eastern Cape is home to the Addo Elephant National Park. Situated 72km north of Port Elizabeth, the province’s largest city, Addo spans just under 300 000 acres of malaria-free game viewing. The park was established to protect the remaining members of the once mighty elephant herds that roamed the area. Today, over 450 of these Gentle Giants inhabit this sanctuary in peace in the company of Cape Buffalo, Black Rhino and a variety of Antelope, offering the visitor a true South African safari.

"We’ve told all our friends that you have to use TAS when you go to Africa because they are organized, great communicators & have the best places to stay and best guides. We have told everyone that visiting South Africa should definitely be on their bucket list!"

"We spent 10-nights in South Africa and would have loved to extend the trip and continue exploring. Our two most favorite parts of the trip were hiking Table Top Mountain with our fabulous, very knowledgeable and polite guide Nick one early morning (5am pick up!) and our time on Safari. Seeing all of the animals in their habitat and being a part of their world was a memory we will never forget."

"We visited South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana. The accommodations were next level. There are no adequate words to describe the experience in the bush with the Big 5 and beyond. The people are the most gracious, appreciative, and kind I’ve ever encountered. If you want a worry free, experience of a lifetime you must use Timelines Africa. I can’t wait to go back!!"
