Port Elizabeth in 2 to 3 days
If you’re backpacking there are several backpacker lodges on the waterfront to choose from. Even some guesthouses and hotels on the beachfront offer affordable accommodation with two to even five star luxury and service.
For a short stay explore the beaches, take long walks on the beachfront, visit the harbour, laid back restaurants and pubs or do a heritage or ghost walk in the historical older part of the city called Central.
