Where To Go (Grilled): Gqeberha

By Joshua

The third in a series of articles featuring cities and towns across South Africa, this edition focuses on the Eastern Cape city of Gqeberha.
Fondly known as “the Friendly City”, or “the Windy City” (depending on who you ask) Gqeberha is one of the jewels of the Eastern Cape. It is the 6th most populous in South Africa, and the second oldest, being founded in 1820 by European settlers. There’s loads to do here, especially after smoking a blunt.
Kragga Kamma Game Park
White Rhino, Buffalo, Cheetah, Giraffe, Zebra, Nyala, Bontebok, and Lechwe are just a couple of the animals you could see taking a drive through the Kragga Kamma Game Park. There are loads of birds to see too, if that’s your thing. If you don’t identify with big game or birds, then there’s still something for you; a Monkey Walk on a 400m treetop boardwalk. If you get too grilled, you’ll probably fit right in.
The Boardwalk
a must-do attraction of the Windy City is the Boardwalk, located a stone’s throw away from the beach. There are loads of cool restaurants and bars to keep you entertained, as well as the only licensed casino in the province (if you feel like losing/winning some money). There are loads of things for your kids to do too, or just you, such as putt putt, water rides, and a go-kart track. You can even get your tenpin bowling shoes on, as there are bowling alleys as well.
SANCCOB PE Seabird  Rehabilitation Centre
The South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds does some amazing work saving the local wildlife. They have really informative tours, and if you feel strongly about the cause, you can even sign up to a volunteer programme (maybe don’t get too high for this one, seeing as you might interact with wild animals).
