PE (as the city is known to the locals) is also well known for its great sporting facilities – the world famous Humewood Golf Club is 5 minutes away from The Windermere so is South Africa’s oldest cricket test match venue St Georges Park and of course the brand new soccer stadium. On the cultural front , like many port cities, it is very cosmopolitan, the most widely spoken language in the area is Xhosa – PE was at the forefront of the anti apartheid struggle as well as being the landing point of the 1820 British Settlers - as a result there are fantastic cultural and historical tours available. Make sure to leave time to go on a safari (Addo and other big 5 reserves less than an hours drive) also go on for a fabulous dolphin and whale watching trip in Algoa Bay.
