On behalf of Ndlambe Municipality from myself, Councillors, Municipal Manager, Directors and all our staff…

We are proud of our four open system estuaries namely Bushmans-, Kariega-, Kowie and Fish River and four blind estuaries namely Boknes-, Kasouga, Riet- Kleinemonde West and East estuaries. We are also proud of our Blue Flag Beaches (Kelly’s beach with its 14th consecutive Blue Flag) and (Kariega Main Beach in Kenton-on-Sea with its 10th consecutive Blue Flag).

We were also awarded 1st Runner-Up (2nd place) in the Eastern Cape Greenest Municipality Competition for 2018 and are very proud of this achievement

Coming to enjoy the Ndlambe area, please respect the laws of the country, be safe and enjoy every moment and create memories that will last forever. When making use of our natural resources please do so with care and respect for all those that also wants to enjoy it.

Our community and infrastructure service departments will be working throughout the festive season to make your stay as enjoyable, safe and relaxing as possible. Please cooperate with the authorities over this period.

There is a Red Indian 19th Century Creed that states: “Only when the last fish has been caught, the last river has been poisoned, the last tree has been cut down and the air is unsafe to breathe …we will realise we cannot eat money!” It is worth thinking about.

On behalf of all at Ndlambe municipality we are wishing you and your family all a blessed and joyful festive season in Ndlambe and a prosperous happy new year for 2019. May your wildest dreams come true. When you leave travel safe, and come visit us soon again. We will be waiting. God Bless
