Port Elizabeth is one of the largest cities in South Africa, situated in the Eastern Cape Province, 770 km east of Cape Town. The city, often shortened to PE and nicknamed "The Friendly City" or "The Windy City", stretches for 16 km along Algoa Bay, and is one of the major seaports in South Africa. It is also referred to as Africa's Watersport Capital.

Port Elizabeth was founded as a town in 1820 to house British settlers as a way of strengthening the border region between the Cape Colony and the Xhosa. It now forms part of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality which has a population of over 1.3 million. 

The city is in a friendship partnership with the Swedish city of Gothenburg and is a sister city to the American cities of Jacksonville, Florida and Palm Desert, California.

How to Plan the Perfect Road Trip. If you are on a strict budget, compare costs between countries. For example, the price of petrol in Turkey is significantly higher than its European neighbors. Having said that, eating out is cheaper in Turkey than most European countries.

Plan the road trip around your interests. Not every area has bars and theme parks while hikers and nature lovers will be seriously disappointed to find themselves driving from city to city. There are vast areas in America where there is no life and it is very laid back. This may disappoint the city lovers but delight anyone that loves the open road, landscapes and nature.
It is not about the distance traveled but the sites that you see in between. Spending 90% of your time driving is no fun for anyone and the constant lack of space from everyone being in a car can cause arguments. Plan the attractions and research sites to see before departing. Then mark them all off on a map.

Adults should take turn in driving. This will help each person on the trip to appreciate the views that drivers do not often see. It will also help if one adult want to consume alcohol as drink driving in most countries carries a heavy penalty
Think about your accommodation. Are you happy hiring a camper van or would you prefer the luxuries of a hotel room? Do not forget to factor these into your overall budget

Groups of friends should agree from the start who pays for what. It will cause arguments if one person is buying for the petrol all the time. Ideally, all joint costs such as petrol should be split.
Be flexible. Very often, you will come across sites or hear local tips that do not appear on the internet. Discovering off the beaten tracks are often most of the fun of road trips.

Think about essential items and what can be shared to save on space especially if you are planning on a camping trip.
Research the driving rules of the country before departing.
Think seriously about your travel partners. If you do not get along with someone in your own time, then chances are the road trip will be miserable.
