Lower Baakens Valley

Looking down into the lower Baakens Valley from South End, this is very much what you see.  The road in the middle of the photo running up the hill is Brickmakerskloof with the St Georges Park Cricket Stadium just visible at the top.  The Baakens River is contained in a narrow channel from here down to the Port Elizabeth Harbour, which means that if a flood hits PE, this section always gets severely effected.  The buildings are mostly old warehouses used by different businesses.


  1. What a fantastic view. Great photo Firefly

  2. I enjoy seeing these photos. Am an American who spent a few years in PE and lived in Mykonos. This was the view from our flat. Thanks for posting. Now living back in US and recalling our time there.
