O.R. Tambo District Municipality is situated along the eastern side of the Eastern Cape Province.

It is regarded as one of the tourist attraction areas in South Africa. This is mainly due to the fact that it lies along the coastline of the Indian Ocean that stretches for up to 160km.

This coastline boasts of the fact that it mainly consists of indigenous greenery.

O.R. Tambo District Municipality further boasts itself by being the birthplace of the prominent leaders of the liberation movement of S.A.

It is here that both Nelson Rolihlalhla Mandela and Oliver Reginald Tambo (popularly known as O.R.) grew up facing the harshest economic realities of life i.e. hunger and poverty which led them to take up arms and be one of the outstanding leaders in the whole world.
