What's Port Elizabeth Like for Expats?

Port Elizabeth is located on the southern coast of South Africa, in the Nelson Mandela Bay Region. The city is the furthest south on the African continent (its just further down than Cape Town) and is one of the country’s largest seaports. Its waterfront is beautiful and classy (despite often being overlooked for the nearby Cape town) with plenty to enjoy and appreciate. The city has quite a mild climate — it neither gets particularly cold or hot, meaning it is a very comfortable place to live. Like most of South Africa, there are many languages spoken in Port Elizabeth. Of course, English is widely spoken, but so is Afrikaans and Xhosa so don’t be surprised to find yourself needing more than one tongue in your repertoire. Get the answer to these questions and meet other expats from around the world with InterNations — the world’s trusted expat community.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Maputo or Lusaka, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    InterNations provided me with an "entrance" to the expat circles of Pretoria, so to speak, and helped me get to know other French expatriates.
