The seats were very uncomfortable. I along with maybe 4 other passengers were never given our breakfast meal. The attendant completely forgot about us. For such a long flight the seats should be made with more comfort in mind. Just because it is economy doesn’t mean we don’t deserve comfort.

Known as “The Friendly City” or “The Windy City”, Port Elizabeth occupies a 10-mile stretch along Algoa Bay. It was founded in 1820 to house British settlers (the Campanile Memorial was built in 1923 to commemorate this landing; there’s a climb of 204 steps to the Observation Room, which offers magnificent views of the harbour and surrounding area below) and is now part of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality, along with Uitenhage and Despatch.

Lying on the south-east coast of the East Cape province and fringed by beautiful beaches, Port Elizabeth offers a wealth of options for travelers who like to raise their adrenaline levels. Cycling, quad biking and 4×4 trails are all great things to do on land. Off shore, there’s surfing and kite surfing, kayaking, wreck diving, shark diving and deep-sea fishing.

To the west of Port Elizabeth is the Garden Route and the Sunshine Coast, Frontier Country and a million hectares of game reserves are to the east.

Port Elizabeth is the gateway to the Eastern Cape with all its fantastic parks and reserves. Go on a guided game drive of Addo-Schotia; this area is home to the densest populations of antelope, lion and elephant in South Africa. There’s whale and dolphin watching near St Croix Island and, 18 miles outside of Port Elizabeth, the Lion Park. If you’re up for it, there’s skydiving and bungy jumping off Bloukrans Bridge too!

If all that physical activity gets too much, visit the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum at St George’s Park, the South African Air Force Museum (situated on the southern side of Port Elizabeth Airport) and the Red Location Museum. Red Location is one of the oldest settled Black Townships of the city, getting its name from the rusted, corrugated iron barrack buildings. The museum tells the story of historical struggle in South Africa.
