Humewood Golf Course

Eastern Cape
Humewood Golf Course

The Humewood Golf Club in Port Elizabeth belongs to the top ten in the country and hosted the South African Open four times. The course surrounds the impressive double-storey club house, from where one can enjoy the beautiful views of the course itself and Algoa Bay. Humewood is known to be tough. The fairways are undulating, the bunkers deep, and the frequent strong winds, often gale force between October and January, top it up. This is one of the finest courses in the country and golf-loving delegates may want to enjoy the course that spans 18 holes and is just over 6km long. There is a well-appointed clubhouse with a fantastic view of the ocean as well.

Walking Tour Of Port Elizabeth

Walking Tour Of Port Elizabeth

Explore Port Elizabeth, Ibhayi (“the bay” in isiXhosa) or the Friendly City as it is affectionately known by locals. This is the coastal hub of the Eastern Cape and has many hidden treasures and some amazing history. With its rich history and variety of attractions, delegates can enjoy a walking tour of the city – stopping off at the Campanile (commemorating the 1820 settlers), Donkin Reserve, Vuyisile Mini Square, Fort Frederick and the South End Museum. City tours often start from the Campanile Memorial – an important landmark situated at the entrance of the railway station and then proceed to follow Route 67 – an exciting trail that combines the best elements – both historical and modern day – of the people and culture of the Eastern Cape. It also pays tribute to Madiba’s 67 years of service to South Africans.

For Fantastic Wildlife Experiences

Eastern Cape
For Fantastic Wildlife Experiences

Both the Kragga Kamma Game Park and Seaview Game and Lion Park are situated close by, giving delegates the chance to interact with creatures of the wild. Lush coastal forests and grasslands are home to vast herds of African game, including white rhino, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, Nyala, Bontebok, Lechwe and many more species. All the animals roam freely, unrestricted in their natural surroundings. This is an owner-operated, animal-friendly park, where no hunting or other disturbance of the game is permitted, therefore you always get close-up views and great photo opportunities. Take a drive in your own vehicle through the park on the well-maintained roads (no need for 4x4) and enjoy viewing the game in any weather condition from the comfort of your car. For those really close encounters, choose the two-hour guided tour in an open game-viewing vehicle with a professional guide providing you with interesting information on the animals and the historical background of the area.

The Red Location Museum

Eastern Cape
The Red Location Museum

The Red Location Museum stands out amidst a collection of brightly coloured houses, with distant views of the ocean. Its iron, wood and steel construction echoes its shanty town location and recalls the oppressive days of apartheid. This is an award-winning museum where visitors can explore the struggle for freedom, situated on the site of the city’s first black township. It is definitely worth a visit for some insight into the past. It's a museum about memory and metaphor that seeks to engage with the nation's recollections of an unjust past, using exhibitions depicting the horrors of institutionalised racism and the heroic efforts of the anti-apartheid movement. It's one of only two museums in the country specialising in apartheid history (the other is the Apartheid Museum near Soweto, Johannesburg) and it's the only museum in South Africa that houses an internal mausoleum. Visitors should see the Red Location Museum as an extension of daily life in an extraordinary township, so stay a while and take advantage of a local tour and the cultural encounter of a lifetime in the company of the residents of New Brighton.

A Cruise To The St. Croix Island Marine Reserve

A Cruise To The St. Croix Island Marine Reserve

Is a highlight for visitors to Port Elizabeth. This is home to the largest breeding colony of African penguins – there are over 20 000 of them. Bottlenose dolphins are also often spotted from the boats, and sea birds, shipwrecks and Cape fur seals will probably all make an appearance. Raggy Charters, in combination with the Baywatch Marine Conservation Project, offers expertly guided whale-watching, dolphin-watching and African penguin-watching cruises in South Africa. Raggy Charters is the only licensed boat-based whale and dolphin watching permit holder in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. If you are as committed to wildlife as the Raggy Charters team of Algoa Bay, then book an exciting and educational Penguin Patrol day out. Not only will you get to see animals in their natural habitat but you also get to experience how they are saved and rehabilitated. It is an early morning start with a boat trip in search of as much wildlife as possible, and then the rest of the day is filled with a visit to SAMREC and Bayworld!

Magnificent Beaches

Magnificent Beaches

From the numerous Blue Flag beaches in Port Elizabeth to the exquisite stretches of unspoilt sand along the Wild Coast, the Eastern Cape is home to some of the finest beaches in the country. There are six swimming beaches, stretching from Bluewater Bay on the N2 towards Grahamstown, to Sardinia Bay in the west. The temperature of the water is warm, peaking at 23 degrees Celsius in summer and around 16 degrees Celsius in winter. The city of Port Elizabeth is very proud of its international Blue Flag status, awarded to King's Beach, Wells Estate Beach and Humewood Beach. All have good water quality, excellent lifesaving standards, parking and clean ablution facilities. These beaches continue to uphold their Blue Flag status and are a proud attraction in the Eastern Cape. The Eastern Cape's beaches are more wild and unspoilt when compared to the many commercial beaches in South Africa. Visit these pristine beaches and experience something different.

Take A Township Tour

Take A Township Tour

Experience life in the townships on the outskirts of East London and Port Elizabeth; enjoy spending some time with the local folk; buy a few homemade objects; enjoy the local music; perhaps taste some local beer at a tavern or eat marogo at a nearby restaurant. A morning spent in the Port Elizabeth townships and settlements of Zwide, KwaZakhele and Ramaphosa puts you in the midst of a bustling street market, where sidewalk barbers, wire artists and hooting taxis hold sway. And rest assured – your touring company is an expert crew with a social conscience. During a midweek Port Elizabeth township tour, you'll find places like Zwide, KwaZakhele and Korsten humming with activity. A troop of streetwise goats look left and right before crossing. A few mothers stand, gossiping at a tap and collecting water while their children play. Further along on your township tour, you'll find a market. On sale, everything from fruit and clothes to beaded cell phone holders and doilies. Under an awning, a hairdresser shaves all the hair off his customer's head – they call it the chiskoplook. There's nothing quite like Port Elizabeth township tours – they are so full of life.
