Port Elizabeth - Plentiful Attractions in a Vibrant Coastal City

Set on the beautiful beaches of Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth has an abundance of warm water beaches, an estuary, rivers and kloofs. There are endless opportunities for surfing, angling, yachting, power-boating, boardsailing and scuba diving.

On the wild side, Port Elizabeth offers malaria-free game reserves where you can view lions, elephants, black and white rhinos, buffalos, leopards, hippos, buck and 300 species of birds to start with. The Addo Elephant Park, a short drive away, is home to the largest family group of elephants so close to a city world-wide.

The city offers live shows at the stately Opera House and Feather Market Hall, nightclubs, beachside pubs, cafés, restaurants, flea-markets, museums and art-galleries. The city center, with its impressive architecture, monuments and statues, is steeped in Settler history. Also not to be missed is the popular Bayworld complex, featuring an oceanarium, snake park and museum. Indeed, Port Elizabeth has much to offer visitors of all age groups.
