Dedicated To Creating Tailor-Made Itineraries

East Cape Tours (1998/020499/07) was established in 1998 by Colin Dilland, who came to South Africa from the UK in 1995. While living in the country, he organised a number of holidays for friends and family and in doing so he fell in love with the country and all it has to offer. He decided to stay in South Africa and organise holidays, and so East Cape Tours was born.

As an online tour operator, East Cape Tours has a dedicated digital operations team that provide clients with interactive and customisable itineraries. We have a wide range of websites focusing on individual destinations. East Cape Tours operates 7 days a week, and are always on-hand to provide clients with the best service possible, ensuring they experience a memorable African holiday.

We have knowledgeable travel experts that are passionate about southern Africa and have first-hand experience regarding the destinations we offer. Our travel experts build a relationship with each client suggesting only the best accommodations and packages.
