Donkin Reserve was proclaimed a public park by Sir Rufane Donkin, who was the governor of the Cape in 1820. I went for a walk around the park and passed the lighthouse from 1861, now the Tourist Information Office and a small museum, and the old stone pyramid from 1820. The pyramid was erected by Donkin in memory of his late wife, Elizabeth, who had died of fever two years before in India. There are two plaques on the pyramid: “To the memory of one of the most perfect of human beings who has given her name to the town below” and “the husband whose heart is still wrung by undiminished grief”.
From Donkin Reserve there was a really nice view of the harbour – and of Donkin Street, which is located on the north side of Donkin Reserve. It is 18 Victorian houses built between 1860 and 1890, only changed very little in the last +100 years and the whole street is now a national monument. The houses are privately owned and not open to the public.
SHAMWARI GAME PARK.
Thanks largely to the efforts of visionary Adrian Gardiner, the Big 5 once again roam the Eastern Cape plains at Shamwari, only 50 minutes from the P.E. airport. Gardiner's 20,000-hectare (49,000-acre) reserve has garnered numerous international awards for conserving a vanishing way of life -- not only for reintroducing game, but also for the reserve's respectful focus on settler and African culture. After a buffet-style lunch, day-trippers are taken to Kaya Lendaba, an African art and culture village created by controversial sangoma (traditional healer) Credo Mutwa. The Kaya gives visitors the opportunity to understand much of Xhosa culture and ceremonies. This is followed by a visit to the Born Free centre, a sanctuary for abused animals, and a 3- to 4-hour game drive in which you explore the five ecosystems of the reserve in an open-topped Land Rover, driven by a knowledgeable ranger. Besides the Big 5, you will spot antelope (the reserve has 18 species), giraffe, wildebeest, hippos, and, if you're lucky, cheetah.
