What people are saying about Port Elizabeth
The guide Freddie Edward was absolutely superb. This was also the case with the guide who showed us around the Campanile. She was called Tammy ( Tamsin) and her enthusiasm and knowledge were incredible. We saw many other places including the City Hall, the former market square, the Donkin Reserve, the Piazza Mosaic and the Voting Line. All explained with enthusiasm by Freddie who was happy to share his knowledge too of everyday life in South Africa.
The guide was very pleasant and nice. We saw some animals and it was wonderful. Elephants, families of elephants with their babies. We saw them playing. We also saw zebras and lions and more. The problems were that: 1. it was very hot in the car. The air con was hardly effective. 2. We drove many hours and saw very little. So most of the time was hot and boring. Lunch was very good. But again, it was very hot at the restaurant.
Freddie very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Showed no annoyance that we berthed late due to weather. Was a little uncomfortable being taken into a shop to buy water when we were told street was controlled by Nigerian drug dealers, better to have water on minibus ready.
Generally good. Sightings of big game limited (No fault of the guide). Expected to see more groups of elephants in particular, but generally single animals. Luck of the draw I suppose. Probably wrong time of year..I’m told winter is better
I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything, the breath taking beauty of the river that expose you to the ocean was marvelous. The view of the sand dunes......I can do this repeatedly
