Geography and History

Bhisho lies east of King William's Town in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.  Bhisho (formerly spelt Bisho) is the provincial capital of the Eastern Cape, having previously been the capital of the Ciskei homeland during the apartheid era.

Bhisho, which means Buffalo in isiXhosa, named after the river that runs through it, has some of the most spectacular views of the Amathole (Amatola) mountain range.  Today Bhisho is one of the newest urban centres in the Eastern Cape, having only been established in the 1970s and 1980s.  This recently built capital of the republic of the Ciskei was granted independence in 1981 and was reincorporated into the New South Africa in 1994.
