The beautiful seaside city of East London is located on the southeast coast of South Africa along the Indian Ocean. Settled at the banks of the Nahoon and Buffalo Rivers by the British in the mid-1800's, the city has now become a popular resort town, especially among surfers. Explore the rocky coast and rolling seaside dunes; the subtropical climate allows for relaxing days on the beach as warm waters lap the shore. Book your car hire in East London and discover the South African landscape.
The Addo Elephant National Park is just a short drive away from East London, perfect for a short day trip in your car hire. 180,000 acres of arid terrain sprawls across the landscape allowing for an array of adventures ranging from safaris to mountain biking. As the name implies, the park is famous for its elephant population. In 1939, when the park opened, there were as few as 15 elephants. Today, over 550 of the massive animals roam the park. In addition to elephants, you may also encounter zebra, buffalo, black rhino, or even the flightless dung beetle, exclusive to the region. Some of the parks also border the Indian Ocean, providing a pristine coastline ideal for a private afternoon luncheon or mid-day nap.
The East London Aquarium is a great place for the entire family to see native South African marine animals. Over 2,200 species call the aquarium home, making up 15% of the known species in the world, to include jellyfish and a number of sharks. The aquarium is dedicated to educating the public in order to better protect wildlife. There are also daily seal performances and educational workshops which feature animals that have fallen victim to pollution. Southern White Whales make East London a stop on their journey south towards the warmer water and the people at the aquarium know that. They have built a pier that sits 11 meters over the surf and during migration season. From here, you are given the opportunity to see whales breach the surface, a magical experience for anyone.
