Port Elizabeth

Second day in Port Elizabeth after a frugal breakfast, incomplete (asked for bacon and eggs that have never arrived) served in the kitchen area of ​​the ugly Sir Roys Hotel, we take the car and decide to reach the Cape Francis Lighthouse a really nice place , rich in cliffs where we stop to have a snack together with seals and cormorants, the sea is beautiful, we take a long walk. Then we return to Port Elizabeth where we stop to eat something before returning to the hotel. Tomorrow we start towards the Garden Route a tourist route that crosses a region with an almost Mediterranean climate. It runs between the Indian Ocean and the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains. It moves between the sea and a vegetation that combines the fynbos and the temperate forest.

Even the waters of the ocean are famous for their marine life: coral reefs, dolphins and sea lions; but above all, the Southern Right Whales that from July to December visit the numerous bays to give birth or breastfeed the calves.
Our next stop will be at Knysna.


St. Lucia – Durban – Port Elizabeth

Day of transfer from St. Lucia to Port Elizabeth, we leave the bed and breakfast after a hearty breakfast, prepared and served with the usual attention and good taste. We after move to the airport of Durban and during the transfer we enjoy the beautifulcoast. We leave the car at Durban airport and take South African Airlines to Port Elizabeth. Once we get the new car and head to our hotel, slightly off-center, a real disappointment compared to how they described it on trip advisor. We unload the suitcases and we run towards the city center, even in this case a slight disappointment accompanies us as we pass through ugly and falling streets and buildings. We head out of the city to the sea that should be nice, and actually the situation improves a little, large and luxurious hotels, wide beaches and fine sand between dunes and paths to do on foot or by bike. We stop in a supermarket to buy something to eat and plan what to do the next day, we wait for the sunset before returning to the hotel.
