Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa
Port Elizabeth is often overlooked by travelers in search of the glitz and glamour of Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, and is South Africa's best kept secret. There is a beach for everyone, from crowded and social, to long and secluded. The lovely old building is a reflection of Port Elizabeth's past as an integral part of the development of the Eastern Cape and South Africa.
Port Elizabeth boasts a host of cultural activities offering insight into the lives of people less fortunate than yourself. Visit the cell in which Black Consciousness activist and freedom struggle martyr Steve Bhiko was held before his death. Port Elizabeth is also a great base from which to enjoy day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, Shamwari, the Baviaanskloof, Port Alfred, Jeffrey's Bay or Grahamstown.
Guests can also explore Port Elizabeth in greater detail on lovely walks and mountain bike trails. Other activities include surfing, sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing and fantastic diving. There are also some exceptional golf courses in the area, most notably Humewood, which is the only true links course in South Africa.
