The sprawling city of Port Elizabeth, nestled on the scenic Algoa Bay, draws visitors with its sandy beaches, mild climate, and an enviable location as the gateway to the famous Garden Route.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Port Elizabeth: Storms River (River Rafting & Tubing & Tsitsikamma Woodcutters Journey), Grahamstown (Cathedral of St Michael and St George, National English Literary Museum, & more) and Addo Elephant National Park (Addo Raptor and Reptile Centre & Parque Nacional dos Elefantes Addo). There's lots more to do: stroll through Shamwari Game Reserve, head outdoors with Wild Dreams Africa, trek along Baviaans Camino, and explore the activities along Kowie River.
