Despatch at a glance

Despite being flanked by both Uitenhage and Port Elizabeth, Despatch has managed to retain its own unique character.

Despatch is a quiet residential area but is situated in the heart of the South African motor hub, with the Volkswagen and General Motors headquarters in Uitenhage and Port Elizabeth respectively. It is home to many families and retirees, and has a population of around 30 000 people.

Thanks to its convenient locale, Despatch offers its residents the feeling of a quiet Eastern Cape town, coupled with the conveniences of being close to the urban hub of Port Elizabeth, with its many restaurants, malls, and gorgeous beaches.
