Information & Gallery

The Makana area is without doubt the area of South Africa that has seen more moments in the history of this beautiful country than any other. It was in this frontier area that migrant black farmers met up with migrant white farmers. The Khoi-san and Xhosa cultures clashed with the Boer and English cultures, and resulted in a region where there are more forts than the entire rest of the country combined. The historical cultural frontier has given way to a frontier of hope and progress, and the challenges attached thereto.

The residents of the Makana area, much like the original Makana of the 1800’s, are taking up this challenge, and are making their way toward the future. No visitor to South Africa has seen South Africa until they have visited in Makana region. Makana Resort is situated on the fringe of the Grahamstown CBD. Any destination in the centre of Grahamstown is within easy walking distance. The resort itself could be compared to a village, with its compact, yet roomy layout. all units are private, and the setting itself is quaint, with the tree lined roads adding to the charm.
