Port Elizabeth

South Africa, Eastern Cape,

Port Elizabeth

The industrial town of Port Elizabeth (abbreviated locally to ‘PE’) with its sprawling townships tends to be the departure point to a Garden Route itinerary (or entry if travelling westwards) and also a hub from which to access the Eastern Cape game reserves such as Addo Elephant Park, Shamwari and Kwandwe (please see the next tab at the top of this page). There is not much to interest the visitor to overnight except when it is necessary due to flight scheduling – though there are some lovely city beaches, coastal walks and excellent township tours which allow an insight into apartheid history and South Africa’s future.
