A wonderful way to begin your visit to Port Elizabeth is by driving your car hire up to Donkin Reserve, where you will find the city’s original lighthouse. From up here you will not only get a great view of the city and surrounding area, but you will also find an information centre inside the lighthouse, which will give you lots of ideas of places to visit.

Not far from here, you can visit one of the most popular attractions in Port Elizabeth, Bayworld. Complete with huge aquariums, seal and penguin enclosures, as well as a famous dolphin show, Bayworld is guaranteed fun for the whole family.

To see a truly impressive sight, jump in the car and drive northeast of the city, to the Alexandria Dune Fields. These are the largest coastal dunes in the southern hemisphere, a grand landscape of mountains made of sand.

One of the great benefits of travelling in South Africa with your car hire is the ability to drive yourself through various wildlife and safari parks. One such place is Addo Elephant National Park, which is just a short trip north of Port Elizabeth. Here you will come face to face with loads of wildlife including elephants, buffalo, rhino, and antelope, all while you explore the park at your own pace.
