Port Elizabeth is a city we wanted to visit so badly for different reasons while traveling through South Africa, but had heavy problems to find accurate information or city reviews in advance. Admittedly, Port Elizabeth has some areas to avoid and it’s best to be back in the hotel by dusk, but there are more things to enjoy and to see when it’s daytime and bright outside!
Port Elizabeth’s history may not reach back a thousand years, but was rather first documented in the late 15th century due to its location on the Pacific. However, indications of a growing city appeared in the middle of the 18th century, mostly because of the British. In fact, Port Elizabeth was even named after the late wife of Sir Rufane Donkin in 1820.
