More Information
The Kouga Local Municipality is located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, west of Nelson Mandela Bay, and forms part of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality. It consists of nine towns, namely, Jeffreys Bay, Humansdorp, St Francis Bay, Cape St Francis, Oyster Bay, Patensie, Hankey, Loerie and Thornhill, as well as various smaller settlements and agricultural nodes.

While Kouga has traditionally been characterised by economic activities largely focused on tourism and agriculture, the area has been positioning itself as one of tne energy hubs of South Africa. Two wind farms are already in operation at Jeffreys Bay and Oyster Bay, and more are in the pipeline.

Kouga is also home to Thyspunt, one of the preferred sites for a new nuclear power station to serve South Africa's growing energy requirements.

Geography, History & Economy
Kouga Local Municipality is part of Sarah Baartman District Municipality.

MDB code: EC108

Description: The Kouga Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the Eastern Cape Province within the Sarah Baartman District Municipality. It comprises the coastal region and the fertile Gamtoos Valley, which also happens to be the gateway to the famous Baviaanskloof wilderness area. It is one of seven municipalities in the district.
 The Gamtoos Valley is recognised as one of the prime exporting areas for citrus and avocado pears. It also competes with the best that South Africa has to offer with its potato crops. Port St Francis, situated in St Francis Bay, is home to the squid industry. The squid, normally referred to as ‘chokka', is mainly export quality but is available locally as one of the area's prized products.
 The Kouga region is of strategic importance in the energy industry. Two large wind farms are already in operation in the area, with more to follow. The area is also home to Thyspunt, one of the sites under consideration for Eskom’s proposed new nuclear power station.
 Kouga has great development opportunities and astute businessmen and women can take advantage of the diverse economic heritage that the Kouga area offers to entrepreneurs.
 The seat of Kouga, Jeffreys Bay, is situated roughly 80km from Port Elizabeth. The town is world-renowned for its ‘Supertubes' surfing spot while ‘Bruce’s Beauties' at Cape St Francis also attract surfers from all over the globe. The clean, safe beaches are exploited by many a tourist, with a large number making an annual pilgrimage to the sandy shores to enjoy a relaxed yet vibrant holiday.
