Why go?

Frontier Country, with Grahamstown as its hub, is one of the most important historical areas in this region, if not in South Africa as a whole.

It is linked to the age-old conflict the area experienced in South Africa’s early history, dubbed the Frontier Wars. This sometimes dry landscape around Grahamstown was once the setting for Britain’s longest colonial war and has more forts than the rest of the country combined.

Frontier Country is also one of the most biologically varied regions in South Africa, with many of the biomes still unspoilt and spectacular. The thousands of hectares devoted to wildlife and conservation are returning the region to its original condition of natural abundance.
