If you had 48 hours to show out-of-towners the best of your backyard where would you take them in Nelson Mandela Bay? Would you encourage them to throw their cozzies in a suitcase and take them to one of the Bay’s Blue Flag beaches? Or maybe you’d share your favourite restaurants and coffee hang outs, take them to a market or introduce your visitors to our natural landscapes?
Where would you go? How would you #ShareTheBay?
Two out-of-town travel bloggers – Di Brown from Cape Town, also known as The Roaming Giraffe, and Tessa Buhrmann from Durban, also known as Responsible Traveller – recently visited Nelson Mandela Bay and had a variety of activities, sights and tasty treats in 48 hours; the rain might have meddled with their initial plans but it definitely didn’t put a damper on their Bay experience.
Day ONE: History and Adventure
Route 67 consists of 67 public art pieces symbolising Nelson Mandela’s 67 years of work dedicated to the freedom of South Africa and it also includes 67 steps leading up the second largest flag in Africa. This tour is a great opportunity for visitors as well as locals to learn more about the city.
The beautiful architecture and the way the Route weaves all aspects of PE’s history into a story – from the 1820 Settlers to the ’94 democratic elections and beyond. Such a wonderfully informative tour for both locals and visitors.
