Time out of time on a historic hill above the main city

There were so many features on this morning walk that I can only say "Don't miss this outing!" The biggest SA flag, the mosaics, the art works....were all just great

We had a lovely walk around Port Elizabeth exploring bits of Route 67. The tourist information centre was good but should offer more information about this interesting route to visitors who may not be aware of it. They have lots on offer but should expand on it to improve visitors experience. For instance the cafe by the light house should... More

Route 67 consists of 67 different pieces of artwork to commemorate the late Nelson Mandela's 67 years of political life. The route begins at the Campanile Monument, which is presently being restored. There is an informative pamphlet, available from the Nelson Mandela Bay tourism offices at the Donkin reserve. The said pamphlet has a map of the route and also... More

Before setting out to view these 67 commemorative artworks, go to the visitors' centre at the Donkin Reserve and pick up a pamphlet on the walk - not only does it give you a siting of all the listed works, but provides commentary as well. If you are unfamiliar with the recent history of SA, then I would consider using... More

How delightful to see how the art community of PE is clubbing together to make the city a must see destination in South Africa from an arts appreciation perspective

I did the walking tour of Route 67 with the guide based at the Donkin Reserve, Tony. It was extremely enjoyable seeing the artworks in the context of the city, and being guided by someone who is passionate and knowledgeable added immeasurably to the experience. I learnt so much. It's really worth going with a guide.

Beautiful vistas, harbour overview, Donkin pyramid and Grand Hotel. Coffee shop overlooking the bay. Beautiful on one of those breezeless days. Definitely worth a visit

With a wide range of art around the site, there is bound to be something that you will admire. Dedicated to Nelson Mandela and the birth of the New South Africa, the site tells a colourfull and wonderful story. I especially enjoyed the artwork made from coloured bottle tops melted onto a mesh to create a picture. Do please be... More

We had a self-guided tour of the Route and it was most interesting. If the name places are more visible and if there are more explanatory posts, it will be a really good experience. You learn about the history of Port Elizabeth and the lng fight of nelson mandela for freedom. DO take water if you intend to walk.
