Additional Information



Nestled in the Malaria-free Eastern Cape, 35km from East London’s city centre and 40 km from the airport, with its rolling hills, river valleys and luscious surroundings, the Game Reserve caters to the heart of even the keenest eco-tourist. Mpongo holds a treasure chest of beauty, rugged terrain and untouched land and is home to a variety of African wildlife (zebra, elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe, numerous antelope and 225 bird species).

Whilst there are a host of activities available at the Premier Resort Mpongo Private Game Reserve, those looking to explore the area have a number of options available to them. Take a day trip to one of the many beautiful white sandy beaches of the East Coast or visit the East London Aquarium where you can watch whales swim in the Indian Ocean through a telescope or take pleasure in a seal show. Walk in the footsteps of South African golfing legends at East London Golf Course which has hosted the South African Open six times.
