Makana Tourism

The celebrated Festival Capital of Africa, Grahamstown is one of South Africa's leading educational, cultural and tourist centres. Located in a temperate valley between the coastal plains and the hinterland of the Eastern Cape, it is the ideal springboard to the surrounding Frontier Country where wildlife can be viewed in a malaria-free environment; to the golden beaches of the Sunshine Coast; and to the unspoilt beauty of the Wild Coast. Grahamstown is a city of contrasts - with the exuberance of students and scholars on a Saturday, the quiet of a sleepy hollow on a Sunday, stately Victorian charms, and vibrant African rhythms. Almost every day, there is something happening in Grahamstown.
