We arranged an-add on stay in Port Elizabeth after our Garden Route tour, which was booked through our travel agent in Manchester. Africa4real Tourism Services was recommended to us by our tour guide in Cape Town, and fairly so.

During our extra 2 days in P.E., we visited the Addo Elephant Park, took in a city tour and did some shopping, all under the care of Peter, who certainly didn't lack any enthusiasm and knowledge as a guide.
