Book flights to Bisho

Bisho is a relatively young town, established in the 1970s, and it's the capital of Eastern Cape province in South Africa. It's situated right next to (about 3 kilometres away) King William's Town, a much older town that was once the capital of the Eastern Cape. The Buffalo River, named after the buffalo that once roamed the area according to the Xhosa language (the word "Bisho" itself means "buffalo" in Xhosa), flows through both Bisho and King William's Town. These two towns, along with another city called East London, are all part of the Buffalo City Municipality.
