Located within the Eastern Cape, south east of Grahamstown, alongside the banks of the Kowie
River is the picturesque town of Port Alfred. Established by British Colonists in the 1820's and
named after Prince Alfred, this little town has kept its distinctly English feel , whilst being
surrounded by national parks which boast abundant and distinctly South African wildlife and
What makes Port Alfred so unique as a town is because it is situated on the Indian ocean
shoreline with the Kowie River dividing it. The Kowie river runs into the Indian Ocean with the river
banks creating more beach like surface. Accommodation in Port Alfred, (also see this link about

subject of water, as you can imagine there is not any lack of water sports in a town like Port
Alfred. Water activities such as boat cruises, jet skiing, body boarding, kayaking, diving and
swimming, only to mention a few.

harbour town. For individuals who like a good golf game, you will be happy to know that one of
South Africa's best golfing ranges is in close proximity at The Fish River Sun Country Club.

the chance to soak in all of the that beauty at your own speed. No matter if you opt to sleep late
and go on a unhurried walk to the un-spoilt beach, before lunch or before dinner. Or regardless of

the sunset as you sip on a glass of sparkling wine.
