Port Elizabeth 'offers excellent reserves'

Article content

4 December 2009

Those holidaying in South Africa should take a trip to the coastal city of Port Elizabeth, it has been claimed.

According to an article in the Daily Telegraph, written by Francisca Kellett and Lizzie Williams - co-authors of the 2009 South Africa Handbook - the port is one of the country's industrial hubs and provides luxurious wild game reserves.

This includes Shamwari, which is home to the Big Five - elephant, rhino buffalo, lion and leopard - with the pair praising its accommodation in particular.

Travellers were also told that other popular locations include the Addo Elephant National Park and Amakhala day safaris.

Individuals not interested in wildlife can still enjoy a range of activities, they added.

"Head for some downtime in the suburbs of Humewood and Summerstrand, where there are a number of resorts and typical seaside attractions and facilities," the duo suggested.

Writing recently for the Daily Telegraph, Charles Starmer-Smith recommended seeing the sights in South Africa by microlight.
