port elizabeth

Port Elizabeth is a city in Algoa Bay in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province.

Named after the wife of the British Governor of the Cape at the time it’s where the first 1820 settlers from Britain landed.

This settler history has been instrumental in the establishment of several Eastern Cape towns named after settler or their descendants.

  • Horse Memorial
  • Campanile tower monument
  • Fort Frederick (from where no shot was fired in anger)
