Roy Lawrence on Elliot - Ignore the town - although it has petrol, post office, supermarket. Stay on a guest farm - the Guardians Lodge can be recommended. I was blown away by the beauty of the mountains and surrounding countryside which was a surprise to me. Much more could be made of the area for a tourist destination. Rhodes and Tiffendel noy too far away. Check road conditions for travelling off the beaten track but that in itself can be an adventure - if you have the correct vehicle. You can certainly entertain yourselves in the area for a good few days.

Elliot - Elliot is a convenient half way point between Port Elizabeth and Durban - that is the only reason we stopped there. The town itself has no attractions. However there are beautiful farms in the area catering for visitors.

Another neglected town - Elliot is located in a beautiful part of the Southern Drakensberg. However the beauty of the surrounding mountains cannot detract from the shabby decay that is overtaking many of the once quaint Eastern Cape country towns. It is a town that as a traveler you feel you have to exit as quickly as you entered. Poverty greets the eye around every corner and there is nothing in the town that would attract holiday makers. The main attraction are the few farms that have overnight accommodation available for those travelling to more attractive destinations.

Elliot has potential - We have been on a 5000 km trip around SA in the last month and paid particular attention to the small towns and villages. Elliot is surrounded by a naturally beautiful setting. It is, however, a dirty and neglected place itself. Its information office is almost non-existent and the staff unfriendly. The exception was a man that met us on the street who really tried to help us but as the information office lacks information pamphlets, his "hands were really chopped off".
