Purple Indigo Photo Gallery


Our holiday homes are situated in a beautiful location on the banks of the Umzimvubu river, near Port St Johns, Transkei. The perfect place to stay for a vacation, an ideal place to stay for the Sardine run, the fishing season or as a base to go whale, dolphin and bird watching. Purple Indigo offers comfortable self catering holidays in apartments and cottage near Port Saint Johns town. We will consider special requests for catered accommodation.  


We have a jetty, a boat slipway. Purple Indigo is a short drive to the beach, the town center & local fishing spots. If you are here for the sardine run, looking for a great fishing getaway or a relaxing family holiday in nature, we will do whatever we can to make your stay a memorable one.


Purple Indigo is situated on 'Kob Hole' or the 'Deep Hole' a much sought after fishing spot on the river.  So if you just want to fish off the bank?  Sit back & enjoy Purple Indigo.
