The city is the fifth largest populated city in South Africa, and the second largest city in area.  Port Elizabeth is also an important South African motor industry centre, and one of the country’s major seaports.

Port Elizabeth, or PE as it is widely known as, has many attractions and activities to keep the whole family entertained.  PE is home to one of the country’s major airports making this part of South Africa easily accessible from all over the World.

Activities

Centrally located to many national parks proudly offering the Big Seven of the animal kingdom, Port Elizabeth is a popular stop-over and stay for those travelling inland.

Incorporating 40 kilometres of beaches, with protected swimming areas, PE is an excellent beach lovers paradise.  Boat-based whale watching trips are operated from the Port Elizabeth harbour, where depending on the type of year will depend on the type of whale seen!  Humpback, Southern Right and Bryde’s, are often spotted.

There are many historical and cultural representations worth seeing, from the South African Air Force Museum to the Donkin Reserve lighthouse.  St George’s Park is iconic to PE and home to the St George’s cricket oval.

You will find Route 67 here, a collection of 67 pieces of art celebrating Nelson Mandela’s years of being devoted to public life.  It is a mixture of visual arts with urban design and heritage.  Nelson Mandela’s metal figure stands tall in the Donkin Reserve, symbolically leading the voting line of South Africans to the first democratic election.

The multi-purpose, multi-tiered Nelson Mandela Stadium is an impressive legacy to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and is also well worth a visit.
