Jeffreys Bay area

While I have received some feedback from various sources, I decided to post this request.

Has anyone stayed at African Dawn and can give me feedback on accommodation. How many nights would you recommend staying there.

Would three days be too long to spend in Jeffreys Bay if one is not a surfer? How much time is recommended for a trip to Tsitsikamma? .Alternative accommodation recommendation for reasonably-priced B&B in J-Bay. Hope not too expensives, especially as it will be in mid-December.

Secondly, can anyone recommend an afternoon/sunset 4x4 drive in one of the game parks in that area. I believe one is offered at Gorah, but perhaps there are others.

What about one- or two day trekking with a guide in a gamepark? Which park in that area would be the best bet?

Looking forward to your replies.

Many thanks

Cape Town, South...

Hi there, I was checking up and noticed no-one had answered you post, sorry about that.

Not entirely my area, only been there once, so if anyone from the PE area answers it may be more helpful, but I'll give it a shot, may I also suggest that you post your question on the Port elizabeth forum.

The Shell Museum, located in the Centre of town, displays a huge collection of shells. This collection was started by Charlotte Kritzinger, a local shell collecter in 1945, who pursued the hobby till her death in the late 1960’s. During her life time the collection was housed in her home where large quantities of sea shells and marine life skeletons were stored in boxes. Interesting visitors could spend an afternoon viewing the shells wile she produced the cartons to show and explain the contents to them.

Horse riding Papiesfontein

There is a circular horse trail of 13 km. You will first ride through indigenous coastal vegetation over the dunes to Gamtoos river mouth. They offer different horses for different skill levels. People don’t need to have experience. You will meet at the farm Papiesfontein just outside Jeffreys bay. There is also free-range horse riding (without a guide) for confident riders.
