With or without cricket, Port Elizabeth (P.E.) is very cool but more so with cricket. The stunning Algoa Bay (above), the lovely people of ‘The Friendly City’, the restaurants & pubs, and quaint oval in St George’s Park make P.E. a relaxing and very loveable city to spend 7-nights at Chapman Hotel (opposite Brookes Hill Suites), just 10 mins from the airport!
Should you fly into Port Elizabeth International Airport simply jump in a cab for the 10mins (in traffic) drive down the hill to the hotel. It is the easiest airport to arrive for any cricket match and as you will be flying 'domestic' you can be on the sands of Algoa Bay or lounging on our hill top pool (above) quicker than you can say "One Castle Lager please!" Well, at least quicker than it will take the beer to arrive!
On the hill overlooking Algoa bay, aside being home to the excellent Blackbeard Seafood Restaurant, Chapman Hotel is opposite Brooke’s Hill Pavilion, home to The Coachman that is arguably the best steak house in South Africa; at least P.E. Here we will host two awesome dinner parties with all drinks included, before and after the test match.
Lounging once again for five days on the embankments, this time in vibrant St George’s Park, amid the constant tootling of the famous brass band, will make you wish we played in P.E. more often. If not only the cricket then perhaps a round at windy Humewood Golf Club will bring you back. If you are more historically inclined when walking, then put your shoes and stroll the 5km Donkin Heritage Trail through the city. Further out of town, when time permits, head to famous Jeffries Bay or outstanding Addo Elephant National Park just 90km and 45km from P.E. respectively.
Addo is a must see for the abundance of elephant in the aptly named park, which neighbours the private Schotia Game Reserve both commonly visited in one day from P.E. You can stay overnight in both parks so consider doing this either before or after the Test. You won't be disappointed.
**We are heading to Addo & Schotia on March 14, the day after the Test. Contact us if you would like to experience these with us.
