DIVE INTO SOUTH AFRICAN HISTORY FROM THIS BEACHSIDE HOTEL IN PORT ELIZABETH
There are some that say the only way to truly experience the culture of a place is through the food. Some say it is by interacting with the people, while others say it is through learning the history of the land. From the Radisson Blu, you can discover each of these to their fullest. Wake in the morning to the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, and enjoy activities like sailing, surfing, scuba diving, kite surfing and much more. Enrich your experience by visiting the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum, or head to the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment Complex for an evening of excitement. If you find yourself in need of a little retail therapy, Greenacres Shopping Center offers abundant shopping adventures.
Explore South African history and culture
Port Elizabeth has always had a reputation for a gentle spirit and fresh sea air. Nelson Mandela Bay is the catch-all name of the metropolis that includes Port Elizabeth, its neighbors Uitenhage and Despatch, and the surrounding countryside. A feeling of ubuntu ("humanity" in Xhosa) abounds, and a township tour offers a taste of local tradition and culture. A short drive brings guests into Big Five territory, or you could start with the gentle giants of Addo Elephant National Park, a perfect day trip. The malaria-free Eastern Cape is also home to private game reserves, which shelter highly endangered species like the white lion and the black rhino.
Adventure into world-class sightseeing
The bustling Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment Complex, which houses world-class roulette, poker and blackjack tables and special Hollywood slot machines, as well as a bowling alley and other family-friendly options, is only a short drive away. The hotel also enjoys reciprocity with historical Humewood Golf Club and includes a generous discount on the excellent links course.
