Eastern Cape, the best place for your New Year 2013

Welcome in the New Year 2013 in the Eastern Cape! Enjoy South Africa's finest beaches where dolphins play in warm waters, people greet with smiles and enjoy the New Year’s Eve of a lifetime. It's the country's second-largest province after the Northern Cape, taking up 13.9% of South Africa's land area, with a population of around 6.7 million. Lying in Algoa Bay is Port Elizabeth which is the largest city and an important harbour. Other major towns include Bisho, the capital city, Uitenhage, which has important motor vehicle manufacturing and related industries, East London, King William's Town and Port St John’s, the largest town on the Wild Coast. The majority of the people speak isiXhosa, followed by Afrikaans and English. Party into the New Year of 2013 in a region that is the birthplace of many prominent South Africans, such as Nelson Mandela. You won’t want the night to end!

Whether you're in the mood for an informal seaside escape, an encounter with the "Big Five" on safari, or a choice of scintillating city diversions, you're sure to find what you're looking for in the Eastern Cape. Scenic diversity is one of the most striking characteristics of the region, ranging from the lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest to the rugged Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, the southern slopes of the Drakensberg and the arid Great Karoo. Alternating between sweeping sand, river mouths, rocks and covers, the coastline is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. You’ll be in paradise when you slip into the New Year of 2013. There are tones of parties along the beaches or in the well established bars and clubs of the towns and cities. You might even want to enjoy the New Year’s lantern parade in Nieu-Bethesda! It is an annually parade that has become a powerful symbol of hope and beauty. It’s up to you, because the Eastern Cape has all your heart can desire for your New Year’s Eve.
