This weekend’s highlight event certainly is the semi-final of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, as the beloved Springboks will take on the All Blacks on Saturday afternoon at Twickenham Stadium.
The kick-off is at 16:00, by which time you should already have a seat warmed at one of the many dedicated rugby watching venues across the country.
Though it may be high on the agenda, the RWC isn’t the only exciting thing happening in Port Elizabeth this weekend.
Check out these 8 things locals love to do in PE:
Easy mornings: Take an early morning stroll down the Port Elizabeth Promenade, meandering all along the beautiful coast from the Boardwalk to the harbour.
