Geography and History

Salem is a small town in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa.  The name Salem means "peace".  Salem got its name when the Xhosa agreed to leave the village in peace after negotiations during the War of Hintsa.

The Methodist Church founded Salem in the mid 1820's.  It is famous for its many fine buildings and also for the historic negotiations between Richard Gush and approaching Xhosa during the War of Hintsa.

 

Activities

Salem is home to the Kariega Game Reserve,  a malaria free Big 5 game reserve in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. It is just 10 minutes off the beautiful garden route coastline, near Kenton on Sea, 140 km north of Port Elizabeth or a mere 45km south of Grahamstown.

Salem has a village green on which cricket matches have been played since 1844.

Salem is situated in a wonderfully unspoilt part of the Eastern Cape, with its gently rolling hills and peaceful surroundings.  Salem is a botanist’s delight with a number of unusual forms of flora and fauna.

The stone churches in the village are always open, still in use and worth a visit.  Many of the original cottages that were built by settlers who arrived by ship from England are still in use today and the cricket pitch is regarded as the oldest cricket pitch in the country.
