At the heart of the tourist route known as Frontier Country, Grahamstown, along with towns and villages like Alicedale, Sidbury, Salem, Riebeeck East and Bedford, is part of one of the most diverse ecological regions in South Africa, with thousands of hectares devoted to nature and game conservation, in a malaria-free environment, and a history steeped in forts, conflict and strife.

Grahamstown lies at the intersection of four very different climatic zones, leading to its unpredictable weather pattern, which many locals will tell you often results in four seasons per day!
Frontier Country boasts the magnificent BIG 5 in numerous game reserves surrounding Grahamstown.  We recommend the following for a great bush experience:

Fantastic and brilliant service by Oswald and Jean. Excellent food. I will recommend this beautiful establishment to anyone travelling to the Eastern Cape.

I really enjoyed it (my stay), a good alternative to a hotel.

All were outstanding - Oswald the most helpful and versatile, from our tv to the drinks! Jessica was also super. It has been ages since we stayed in Grahamstown but have often driven through - we had forgotten what a beautiful and friendly city it is - thanks to all!
