2. Kragga Kamma Game Park
Lush coastal forest and grassland is home to vast herds of African game, including White Rhino, Buffalo, Cheetah, Giraffe, Zebra, Nyala, Bontebok, Lechwe and many more species. All the animals roam freely, unrestricted in natural surroundings.
This owner operated animal friendly park, where no hunting or other disturbance of the game is permitted, means that you always get close up views and great photo opportunities.
Take a drive in your own vehicle through the park on the well-maintained roads (no need for 4x4) and enjoy viewing the game in any weather conditions from the comfort of your car.
For those really close encounters, choose the 2 hour guided tour in an open Landrover with a professional guide providing you with interesting information on the animals and the historical background to the area. For Direction visit their. WEBSITE

4. South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre
SAMREC is Port Elizabeth's marine bird rehabilitation and education centre situated in the Cape Recife Nature Reserve.
The South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre (SAMREC) is a non-profit organisation established in 2000. Our main task is to care for sick or injured African Penguins because of their vulnerability. We see our work as vital because St Croix Island in Algoa Bay is the largest breeding colony in the world.
There are only 20 000 African Penguin breeding pairs left in the SA oceans and more than half are on the islands in Algoa Bay. Various factors have caused the African Penguin numbers to decline over the years. For Direction visit their WEBSITE
