Known as both the Windy City and the Friendly City, Port Elizabeth provides the perfect base to explore South Africa’s Eastern Cape.

We make car rental easy, because we know you can’t wait to feel the freedom of the road and get the very most out of your stay.

Port Elizabeth is just a 10-minute drive from Port Elizabeth Airport via Settlers Hwy/M4. A coastal hotspot on the Eastern Cape, Port Elizabeth is home to a wealth of cultural sights and natural attractions sure to entertain every visitor.
Nestled on Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth boasts 40km of stunning beaches with protected areas for swimming. Among the most popular are Kings, Hobie and Humewood beaches – each offering opportunities for fishing, surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling and more. For more secluded areas, head to Sardinia Bay, Blue Horizon Bay or Bluewater Bay.
South Africa’s difficult history is explored at the Red Location Museum, which displays the horrors of institutionalised racism and the heroic efforts of the anti-apartheid movement. There’s also a Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum and Prince Alfred’s Guard Memorial, located in St George’s Park.
You can’t pass up an opportunity to see Route 67 in Port Elizabeth either. It’s a collection of 67 art pieces celebrating the years Nelson Mandela devoted to public life. With a mix of visual arts, urban design, and even architecture, it’s a fascinating attraction.
Before you leave, climb the lighthouse in the Donkin Reserve. You can also follow a heritage trail around the park, taking you past its outdoor monuments and artworks.
