Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) at a glance

Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) is also known as the “the windy city” or “the friendly city” and is the second oldest city in South Africa. While the city is steeped in history and culture it is a bustling city with many businesses and industrial ventures. Port Elizabeth was renamed Gqeberha in early 2021 to reflect the isiXhosa name for Walmer Township — one of the first and oldest Port Elizabeth townships

Gqeberha residents are treated with some of the most pristine beaches in the Eastern Cape, making it a haven for many beach lovers and tourists. Residents of this fair city refer to themselves as laid back but the booming economy is evidence that the residents here are playing a vital role in the growth of South Africa’s economic future.

Along with the boom in the economy since the city played host during the Soccer World Cup 2010, the property market has also grown with the various types of property available. From houses which still bears its historic origins to modern townhouses, Gqeberha has it all.

Apart from the obvious beach activities available to residents, there is also a place for those who like to enjoy lazy sundowners, shopping, nature or sporting events. And the moderate weather which Port Elizabeth is known for also helps to lure people out of their homes over weekends.

The city is also home to the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University which attracts many students to the city. And as the city claims: “you can get anywhere within 20 minutes” means that students and non-students always have something to do on their doorsteps.
