Route Description

Friendly city, warm sea & safe beaches, malaria-free game reserves with its unique coastal climate, Port Elizabeth has been rated as having the fourth best weather in the world!

The city boasts many attractions as a family and adventure holiday destination, with magnificent wildlife options, scenic nature-based experiences, a stimulating historic settler heritage, diverse culture and a perfect combination of long golden beaches and warm water.

The city has numerous important national monuments such as Fort Frederick; the Donkin Memorial and surrounding four hectare reserve; the lighthouse beside the pyramid has been in use since 1861; the 52 metre Campanile built in 1923 as a memorial to the 1820 settlers. The old harbour board building known as the White House, is one of the few examples of the Art Nouveau style of architecture in South Africa; Market Square with a replica of the Bartholomew Dias cross marks the most easterly point of his historic voyage in 1488.

In 1883 the feather market building was completed and was used exclusively to house and auction feathers during the ostrich-feather boom. The unique Horse Memorial was erected in recognition of the services of innumerable horses which perished in the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902.
