The Eastern Cape is located on the east coast of South Africa between the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces. The Eastern Cape's main feature is its spectacular coastline bordering the Indian Ocean.
It covers an area of 168 966 km² and has a population of 6.7 million. It is the second-largest province in South Africa by surface area and has the third-largest population. The capital is Bhisho. Other major cities and towns include Port Elizabeth, East London, Grahamstown, Mthatha, Graaff Reinet, Cradock and Port St John's.
The Eastern Cape is also home to two metros namely Nelson Mandela Bay Metro (Port Elizabeth) and Buffalo City Metro (East London). The metropolitan economies of Port Elizabeth and East London are based primarily on manufacturing, the most important industry being the hub of South Africa's automotive industry.
KwaZulu Natal has earned its reputation as the garden province, with its verdant tropical coastal landscapes, and rolling green Drakensberg foothills. Its natural heritage extends beyond just the visually pleasing, however – the province is home to two World Heritage Sites, in the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park and the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park.
The province’s largest city, Durban, is the economic hub, and its port is one of the busiest in Africa. Industries found in the city include sugar refining, textiles and clothing, paper manufacturing and food processing plants. The Richards Bay harbour, to the north, is home to aluminium smelting plants, and is the gateway to the East for much of the country’s exported coal and iron ore products.
These industrial and commercial hubs form the backbone of the province’s economy, along with local and international tourism. Many coastal towns depend on the quarterly holiday exodus from inland, and this is reflected in the current state of the property market in these areas.
The KwaZulu Natal Midlands, with their popular Midlands Meander route, have become popular for those seeking semigration. The various towns along the route are all close enough to commute to major centres, but they still offer the appeal of small town living, far away from the troubles and burdens of city life.
The province’s North Coast is becoming increasingly popular, with the King Shaka international airport bringing tourists – and the businesses needed to keep them entertained – to the area. There is so much for visitors to do, including the King Shaka Heritage Route, and the renowned Umfolozi and Mkuze game reserves.

Mining contributes 23.3% to the North West’s economy, and makes up more than a 5th of the South African mining industry as a whole. 94% of the country's platinum is found in the Rustenburg and Brits districts, which produce more platinum than any other single area in the world. This beautiful province also produces a quarter of South Africa's gold, as well as granite, marble and diamonds.
The big question is, would you want to invest in property in this industrial province? Engel and Völkers Southern Africa’s answer to you is, yes. Rustenburg has shown strong growth in recent years, with large numbers of homeowners upgrading to bigger, more expensive homes on the strength of the platinum industry. As a result, the town now boasts an accommodating variety of properties ranging from the original “mine-houses” in the older suburbs to multi-million rand hillside mansions in the newer areas. Its rental market is always extremely active.
