Port Elizabeth

The city is known for its sunshine and safe sandy beaches. For the tourist wanting a total South African experience, Port Elizabeth is the perfect complement to the Garden Route, Settler Hinterland, Sunshine Coast and Cape. Located on the South Eastern coast of Africa, this major sea port and tourist destination is set along the beautiful shores of Algoa Bay, and is fondly referred to as the Friendly Eco-City. The visitor soon discovers that the climate is one major contributor to the reputation of the area as offering an outstanding quality of life. Port Elizabeth also has many historical attractions, some beautiful parks with well landscaped gardens and some awe inspiring wildlife at a number of wildlife reserves in the area. Just 73 km from the city is the exclusive, private Shamwari Game Reserve which is home to the "Big Five" of Africa. Then there is the Addo Elephant Park, dedicated to the preservation of the Eastern Cape Elephant and the Cape Buffalo. The area is also an ideal water sport centre with its clean, warm waters. Sailing is popular and the safe beaches allow for swimming, surfing, body boarding and any kind of water sport. Scuba diving enthusiasts can choose from a number of great spots with lots to see, such as ship wrecks, coral reefs and beautifully coloured fish.
