Discover the hidden wonders of Gqeberha, a coastal city in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa that often escapes the tourist radar. Formerly known as Port Elizabeth, Gqeberha boasts a rich history, cultural traditions, and a stunning coastline washed by the clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Beyond its city limits lies a paradise for nature lovers, offering diverse activities, from water sports on Blue Flag beaches to wildlife adventures just a short drive away.

Explore the Cape Recife Nature Reserve, home to the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB), or wander through the Van Stadens Wild Flower Reserve, showcasing a breathtaking array of indigenous plants. But the true marvel awaits just an hour’s drive from Chief Dawid Stuurman International Airport at Lalibela Game Reserve.

Lalibela is a malaria-free reserve spanning five biomes, offering a habitat for the iconic Big 5, cheetahs, hippos, giraffes, and various antelope species. The reserve’s commitment goes beyond safari experiences; it’s a dedication to conservation and community development. Choose from six luxury lodges, each providing a unique safari encounter, from family-friendly Mark’s Camp to the opulent sophistication of Kichaka Lodge and Mills Manor.

Gqeberha, with its blend of coastal allure and untamed wilderness, invites you to embark on a journey that transcends the ordinary. It’s not just a destination; it’s an invitation to explore, relax, and make a meaningful contribution to preserving South Africa’s natural wonders and the well-being of its communities.”
