Eastern Cape - Mthatha, Coffee Bay, Morgans Bay... The Eastern Cape has a bevy of wonderful spots to visit, and driving in an Isuzu KB can make for a great cultural experience. 

We recently visited the Eastern Cape to appreciate our rich South African heritage in a convoy of locally-built Isuzu KB bakkies including the new 4x4 range. 

And with so much rugged terrain to drive on the road less taken, the bakkies made for the best pick of the bunch.

1. Morgans Bay

The Mitford Hotel might not look like much at first glance, but it's situated right on the beach front in Morgans Bay. The staff are unbelievably friendly and they make the best chicken strips and sandwiches which you can order sitting at the bar.

That too is fully loaded with any drink or cocktail you can sip on while watching the magnificent sunset. It's a cosy place, and the Isuzu KB makes for a perfect vehicle for challenging weather on your way there.  


2 Picnic with a view

About 5km from the Mitford Hotel, there's the most perfect spot for a picnic. The views are breathtaking.

3 Coffee Bay

Coffee Bay is a legendary little Wild Coast Village, which was named in 1893 when a ship full of coffee beans ran aground close to the shores of this area.

4 Nelson Mandela Museum, Mthata

You can't go to Mthatha and not visit the Nelson Mandela Museum. If you're looking to learn anything about South Africa and the legacy that is Madiba, this is the place to go. From beautiful imagery to seeing all the gifts and artwork that has been bestowed upon him through his years, you'll leave there feeling #ProudlySouthAfrican. 

 

5 Hole in the Wall

This landmark at the mouth of the Mpako River features a huge hole in a clliff which protrudes out to sea. When the waves crash into the hole, it makes an ampliefied noise which the local Bomvana people called 'Esikhaleni' which means 'place of sound'.
