Cruises from East London
East London, affectionately called Buffalo City by the locals, is situated 1000 km from Cape Town on the SE coast of South Africa. Located at the mouth of Buffalo River, it is the only river port in South Africa. East London is a peaceful area surrounded by rolling hills and farmland. The city is a surfer's dream, with brilliant surf spots such as Nahoon Reef, its coastline, and the prevailing southwester.
The fishing is also great. Indeed, the city is at the northern end of a 300 km stretch of coastline referred to as the Sunshine Coast, renowned for its many kilometres of beautiful unpolluted and uncrowded beaches. Swimming, sailing, water-skiing, boardsailing and boating are enjoyed all year round, while the river mouths, lagoons and gullies provide a paradise for fishermen.
