About Port Elizabeth

The city is situated about 800 km from Cape Town and 260 km from Knysna. It is known for it’s sunshine, safe sandy beaches and warm sea. For the tourist wanting a total South African experience, Port Elizabeth is the perfect complement to the Garden Route. Located on the South Eastern coast of Africa, this major seaport and tourist destination is set along the beautiful shores of Algoa Bay, and is fondly referred to as the Friendly City. Temperatures are moderate all year round with rain scattered throughout the year. The summers are warm with a very temperate humidity level. Winters are mild and pleasant, and it is significant that water sports, even surfing, boardsailing and diving, are practised year-round.

 

Overseas tourists will be happy to hear that even at the seaside you can enjoy the awe inspiring wildlife of Africa, as there are a number of wildlife reserves in the area around PE. Just 73 km from the city is the exclusive Shamwari Game Reserve, which is home to the "Big Five" of Africa. Then there is the Addo Elephant Park, dedicated to the preservation of the Eastern Cape Elephant and the Cape buffalo. There are other smaller reserves that are just as delightful and will provide a memorable African experience. The area is Malaria Free.
