The Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency (ECPTA) contributes to building the Eastern Cape into a province where responsible tourism and conservation underpin sustainable development.

ECPTA’s dual mandate is to develop and manage protected areas and promote and facilitate the development of tourism in the province. ECPTA is therefore the management authority for the provincially declared protected areas and the Destination Marketing Organisation for the province.

The agency is committed to facilitating development in both mandated areas. It supports emerging tourism products to become marketable, and emerging game farmers to become commercially viable. The Agency works with partners to offer tourists and visitors unforgettable opportunities to explore the Eastern Cape.
