Elliot Accommodation - Eastern Cape, Wild Coast & Berg
Lying in the valley of the Slang River, Elliot, Eastern Cape is basically a rural farming town surrounded by a wonderful backdrop of Eastern Cape mountain grandeur, crystal streams teaming with trout and bass, waterfalls and towering cliffs. With an area of only 7km, and a population of just 2,267, Elliot, Eastern Cape could be dismissed as just another 'dusty' little town, however, because it's been firmly nestled in the majestic mountains for over 100 years, Elliot holds it's own.
Known in Xhosa as 'Ecowa" for mushroom, which grows profusely in this area in summer, Elliot accommodation is close to the majestic Drakensberg peaks of Giants Castle and The Pillars, and just 18km south of Elliot is the magnificent Gillie Cullem waterfall. To the north-east of Elliot, the scenery is dominated by the "Gatberg' - meaning 'hole mountain', due to the hole that has eroded through the softer strata near its summit. The Xhosa name for this majestic landmark is uNtunjinkala, meaning 'crab's opening'. While in Elliot, make sure you see the fascinating rock formations and sandstone caves adorned with Eastern Cape bushman art - rock paintings from the Eastern Cape’s earliest inhabitants, the San people, who provide a unique eye into the world of many generations ago.
The sleepy (almost) one horse Eastern Cape town of Elliot may be easy to pass by, so don't expect a buzzing night life, however, just 9km outside the actual town centre of Elliot you will find cosy, rustic Elliot B&B accommodation where you'll experience warm Eastern Cape hospitality at its best.
Plan on coming back to Elliot accommodation, because it's a case of "arrive a stranger, leave a friend".
