Johannesburg to East London Travel Guide

East London, South Africa, is the gateway to the Eastern Cape – a landscape of wild cliffs, sand hills and the whale-friendly waters of the Indian Ocean. But before diving into the countryside, it’s well worth having a quick poke around the city. Crumbling Victorian houses and time warp museums pop up downtown. The city is best used as a springboard to the Wild Coast, where the jagged coastline and ancient forests are a Mecca for hikers. Alternatively, wind your way along the Sunshine Coast, which gets the most sunshine in South Africa – an average of 6 hours a day. The great weather and mild sea temperatures make it one of the best surf spots on the planet. Greenery comes in the shape of East London Coast Nature Reserve, which gives a taster of the rugged scenery that lies beyond. Best of all, travelling from Johannesburg to East London is easy. Around 7 short direct flights jet off every day.
