Are you an adventurous self-drive traveller looking to explore South Africa beyond the Kruger Park and Cape Town and Natal? Why not visit the Eastern Cape - easily accessed via road from other Provinces or by air from the country's two international ports of entry - Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Locally based, we at Isiko have developed a portfolio of handpicked, quality destinations showcasing the diverse beauty and treasures of the Eastern Cape. Grouped, either geographically or by niche, from the luxury of a Safari Lodge, to the homely warmth of an owner-run Guest House to the simplicity of a Cob cottage – accommodation options for everyone. Our experiences range from safari to beach, from farm stay to fly fishing, from fine food and spa pampering to the remoteness of wilderness – and we are still growing.

Design your own unique tour from our clusters of experiences or select a couple of individual destinations that capture your imagination. If you're already planning a trip to one of our neighbouring Provinces, why not add on a day or two and visit us too?

Book with us, with confidence, secure in the knowledge that your holiday will be a professionally planned, memorable experience. Once you have sampled our richly varied palette, you will want to return, we are sure!
