If you’re having a hard time deciding what to see in Port Elizabeth, we’ve got your back. Grab an Uber, your sunglasses and your entourage and you’re ready for a weekend in the “Friendly City”! Start your day with a walk along the beach at Algoa Bay, taking in the fresh sea air and the beautiful ocean.

To learn more about the wildlife of the region, head over to Bayworld for an exciting and educational visit. The museum was established in the 1850s, making it South Africa’s third oldest and one of the best places to visit in Port Elizabeth.

Hungry? Order an Uber and make your way to Stanley Street, the trendy heart of the foodie scene. Enjoy a lunch on the pavement with friendly locals and a glass of locally brewed beer.

You’ll be breathless at the sight of rhinos, cheetahs, buffalo, giraffes and zebras, among other wildlife. These animals roaming peacefully in their natural habitat will show you how beautiful mother nature truly is. Donkin Reserve is the perfect spot for an afternoon walk, and you must make sure you visit the 150-year-old lighthouse.
