Airlink connects you to East London with direct flights from Cape Town.


Officially known as Buffalo City, East London is situated along the extensive Eastern Cape coastline, on the estuary of the Buffalo River where it flows to the Indian Ocean. It is South Africa’s only important river port. Laidback and charming, the small city centre of East London offers a few attractions worth exploring, including an excellent natural history museum and the Victorian-style City Hall.


Gateway to the Wild Coast and Sunshine Coast, East London is most well-known for its sweeping stretches of beautiful sandy beaches, lapped by the warm Indian Ocean current, and is loved by swimmers, surfers and sun-worshipers for its endless watersport opportunities. The river mouths and lagoons also provide a paradise for fishermen. Just a short drive from the city, visitors can find themselves immersed in nature in one of the region's popular private game reserves.
