Ah my little town. I have called this often overlooked little gem of a place home for the last 16 years and I must admit that I still love it. Our beautiful beaches and the friendly people. The great places to eat and the beautiful scenery that exists for miles outside of the city. And let's not forget the temperate weather, because if you're anything like me, your favourite kind of weather is weather that doesn't make you feel obligated to talk about the weather, and there's no better place to find that kind of weather than here.

The city of Port Elizabeth signals the end of the Garden Route, as you then start to enter Wild Coast territory and move closer to Durban along the coastline. It certainly doesn't have the attractions that cities such as Cape Town and Durban offer, but is still a pleasant stop to break up your journey. The nearby Addo Elephant park is perhaps a better place to base yourself slightly further on from PE, with several nice lodges available right next to the park entrance. Expect plenty of elephants (surprisingly) as well as the rest of Africa's big five.


Small town which we explored aft the Game Reserve enroute to Kysna which is abt 4hours away.
