Port Elizabeth Flights GuidePort Elizabeth, as may be clear from the name, is a large port city in South Africa, and in fact, one of the largest in the country. Founded by British Africa settlers in 1820, the city, now known as "The Friendly City," was a major trade hub and one of the centers of the 2010 World Cup. Visitors come to see the beautiful Garden Route walking path, many famous beaches, and to go whale watching in the summer and winter.
Nearby cities include Johannesburg and Capetown, which is served by the Port Elizabeth Railway station. The station also goes to cities in nearby countries via connections to Johannesburg. Port Elizabeth also has an airport, Port Elizabeth Airport, though it currently only offers domestic flights.
Sometimes called "The Windy City" Port Elizabeth is cooler than other parts of the African continent, and even other cities in South Africa. Though summers are warm, they do not boast the stifling heat of other nearby places, and the three rivers running through the city further moderate the temperature. Located in the Southern Hemisphere, South African summers are Northern winters. So why not visit in January for a nice summer vacation? July and August are cool without being cold, but may boast a higher rate of visitors than other parts of the year.
