About Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth is the perfect place to tour. This major city is about 770 km from Cape Town and it stretches about 16 km along Algoa Bay, making it one of South Africa’s most important seaports. Port Elizabeth (shortened to PE by locals) is actually the largest, the most Southern City of Africa, situated further south than Cape Town. The city forms part of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality and it is home to about 1.3 million people.
A place of industry and tourism, Port Elizabeth has a lot to offer. The city is found at the end of the Garden Route, making it a great starting point as well, depending on the direction in which you wish to travel (there is no right or wrong way to see the Garden Route). Its position on the Cape Coast also makes it the ideal place to spend some time on the beach, and Port Elizabeth has some of the best. Two of the beaches that have earned the best reputations are Hobie Beach and King’s Beach.
The city itself is home to a number of exciting, historic attractions. The Donkin Heritage Trail, which includes the bell tower which was built to commemorate the 1820 settlers, the city hall, the Donkin Reserve Park and the monument as well as Fort Frederick are all inspiring attractions and showcase beautiful examples of early South African architecture.
Nelson Mandela and the legacy he has left in South Africa is one of the biggest reasons why many visit Port Elizabeth. On Route 67, travelers can follow a walking trail featuring 67 works of art, each made to symbolize a part of the 67 years Nelson Mandela spent in jail. Art lovers can extend their journey by visiting the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum.
Being on the coast, Port Elizabeth has become the place to see oceanic wildlife. Between June and August, and again between November and January, whale watching opportunities are plentiful. Often, whales can be spotted from high vantage points or from tour boats. And if wildlife sightings are your objective, the Addo Elephant National Park is just a stone’s throw away.
