A sightseeing tour of Port Elizabeth has never been easier — or more fun — than this 2 1/2 hour guided tour. Embrace and admire 67 unique pieces of public art works designed by local artists symbolising Nelson Mandela's 67 years of work dedicated to the Freedom of South Africa and includes 67 steps leading up to the second largest flag in Africa.
The Campanile was erected to commemorate the landing spot of the 1820 Settlers and contains the largest carillon of bells in the country in addition to its chiming clock. With 204 steps to climb to the top offering magnificent views of the city and various art galleries added to space that tell the democratic stories and showcase the arts and culture of Nelson Mandela Bay, the campanile is a must on our itinerary.
The Donkin Reserve is essentially a large open public space which was proclaimed by the founder of the city, Sir Rufane Donkin. We will see the Stone Pyramid Monument with a touching inscription erected by Sir Rufane Shaw Donkin in memory of his late wife, Elizabeth, after whom the city and the lighthouse was named.
