Port Elizabeth Mini Guide

Part of the Eastern Cape Province, Port Elizabeth is one of the biggest cities in South Africa.

It has two nicknames, the Windy City and the Friendly City. As well as being the water sports capital of South Africa it also has one of the largest ports in the country.

The port is formed around Algoa Bay on the coast with the Indian Ocean and it has some fantastic beaches. Visitors may also want to take a tour of Nelson Mandela Bay which is fascinating as you see all the old historical buildings of Port Elizabeth.

If you want somewhere suitable for youngsters why not try Bay World where they can see live dolphin shows? The South African air force museum is also good.

Having a rental car means you can drive to the nearest other cities which are Durban and Cape Town. With our unlimited mileage offer you can do as much exploring of South Africa as you want during the terms of your rental contract.

The Garden route is just one of many fantastic scenic drives which can be undertaken from Port Elizabeth. The drive to Cape Town is an extremely long one at around 800 kilometres.

You can pick up your vehicle from Port Elizabeth Airport too, which has connections with many South African cities. There are also public transport services in the form of the train and the bus.

Port Elizabeth is an attractive city with plenty to do. Its wonderful climate adds to its high quality of life and ensures that it’s unlikely that your holiday will be spoiled by poor weather. Top of your list should be to tour the historic old town.

Drive your hire car down to Dickens Street where the tour begins and see the old lighthouse, the town hall, the feather market hall, Fort Frederick and much more. From there you can then head out to see the Alexandria Dune Fields, the largest expanse of sand dunes in Southern Africa.
