Port Elizabeth
By repute a “working man’s town” the city of Port Elizabeth, on the East Cape coast of South Africa, is nevertheless a great place for a holiday. The well-developed seafront offers some lovely stretches of beach, it is in close proximity to some wonderful game parks, and historically the city has strong British connections beingmore

Port Elizabeth Transport
Arriving at Port Elizabeth airport you can pick up a cab from right outside. There's no order, just check each one as to the price to your destination if you like to barter. If you're not that strapped for cash I've found that pre-booking with someone like home James gave me huge peace of mind. Awesome service, so safe, and amazingly reasonable. There are nearly always cabs outside the airport though, Hurters, Kingkab and beachcab (a landrover). Make sure you get their card so you can take a taxi where ever you go in the city. Stay away from the minibus taxis.
The friendly city indeed - Marsha. Date of travel: Jan 2006
Port Elizabeth (or P.E as it is known) is indeed the friendly city. Although there is not much to do, the people are very friendly and welcoming and go out of your way to make you feel at home. There are some lovely buildings but unfortunately the Central area has become run down and a lot of what could be tourist attractions have suffered. There is a beautiful stretch of beach at Sardinia Bay and although it can get VERY windy, wonderful for a day out. Great walks on the promenade as well. Great for a night or 2 and bonus of being very close to the Addo Elephant Park.

Exciting and different experience!
An excellent game farm (Molweni) about 2 hours from PE has just started what they call the Nguni Cattle Roundup. I joined the first one and what an exciting, different experience it was! It is an adventure on horseback, the main aim to find, gather and herd the cattle on the farm to areas where they get dipped, tagged, branded etc, but en route we rode past giraffe and wildebeest - and the scenery was beautiful too. I felt like a real cowgirl, dashing around the bushes to round up the cows! And after each day we were pampered with superb food and accommodation. 3 days of exhilarating adventure together with four nights of well-fed relaxation combined to give us an exceptional encounter that balanced horseback riding, cattle work and game viewing.
