is a section of the Sunshine Coast
that lies around 150km east of Port Elizabeth
in the Eastern Cape
area of South Africa
The 75km of coastline that lies to the west of Port Alfred
is amongst the most alluring in the country, with wild and rural landscapes backing broad sand-dune beaches between glorious river mouths.
The most interesting accommodation options are Sibuya Forest Camp
and Sibuya River Camp
on a pretty little wildlife reserve which is accessed by boat from Kenton-on-Sea.
A little to the north is the much larger wildlife reserve of Kariega, which has free-roaming elephants, rhinos and lions. Our favourite accommodation here is the quaint Kariega Homestead
Further west is the rural retreat of Sebumo Tude
, a great lower cost base for daytrips along the coast.
The pretty seaside village of Kenton-on-Sea has a range of beach accommodation. The best at-home guesthouse is probably River Roost
, whilst Oyster Box
is certainly one of the best house rentals.
