Best Mthata (Umtata) accommodation an obvious choice
Spelt Umtata until 2004, Mthata is at the centre of an area of the Eastern Cape once commonly referred to as the Transkey, homeland of South Africa's Xhosa - speaking people, and for many it represents the gateway to maginificent part of the country between the Indian Ocean and the N2 motorway that stretches from Port Edwards in the north to East London and in the south. It's here that one of the three Nelson Mandela museums is located, with exhibitions in Mthata's Bunga Building including an account of the former president's (Nelson Mandela) Long Walk to Freedom.
Many of the buildings were constructed in a style popular during the country's colonial era, and also of interest is the dam some five kilometres out of town where water sports are enjoyed and where picnic areas have been provided. Mthata is surrounded by a number of wilderness areas - Luchaba, Hluleka as well as the Dwesa & Swebe Natures Reserves. And when it comes to Mthata (Umtata) accommodation there is one place more highly recommended than any other.
Close to the Nelson Mandela Airport (17 kilometres) and even closer to the Mthata Country Club (5 kilometres), the Garden Court Mthatha stands out among the hotels in Mthata for its wonderful views, convenient location relative to the city centre, very good standards of hospitality and for its comfortable rooms. Making it the first choice for business travellers and holiday makers alike.
