A com­pre­hen­sive trans­port net­work helps to fa­cil­i­tate such com­fort­able gal­li­vant­ing from at­trac­tion to at­trac­tion by ei­ther road or rail; although self-driv­ing is ad­vised to en­joy the op­ti­mum ex­pe­ri­ence.

Be­fore even con­tem­plat­ing the in­ter­nal lo­gis­tics though, the re­gion al­ready houses a com­pre­hen­sive hub in terms of ar­riv­ing in Nel­son Man­dela Bay; its air­port, har­bour and roads all geared up to link the Eastern Cape not only to the rest of South Africa, but to the rest of the con­ti­nent and be­yond.

As such, Port El­iz­a­beth Air­port con­nects both do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally to a host of des­ti­na­tions, and once you’re set­tled in the city or sur­round­ing ar­eas, any num­ber of op­tions are avail­able in or­der to be­gin ex­plor­ing the re­gion.

“Taxis, ho­tel trans­port and plenty of car hire op­tions are avail­able from the air­port while shut­tle ser­vices of­fer a con­ve­nient mode of trans­port in and around the city, as well as in the sur­round­ing ar­eas,” ex­plains Nel­son Man­dela Bay Tourism. “Taxis of­fer re­li­able, con­ve­nient, cour­te­ous and quick ser­vice. Mu­nic­i­pal buses, op­er­at­ing as a ser­vice to peo­ple liv­ing within the Nel­son Man­dela Bay, travel to all parts of the city and res­i­den­tial ar­eas.

“Var­i­ous af­ford­able car hire com­pa­nies are avail­able for vis­i­tors who pre­fer to ex­plore the city by them­selves. You can choose from small econ­omy class cars to con­vert­ibles and 4x4s. Trail­ers and car­a­vans are also avail­able for hire at dif­fer­ent out­lets.”

Mak­ing the most of the ex­cel­lent road net­work may be the way to go in or­der to reach ev­ery cor­ner of the re­gion, but one left­field mode of travel could be by wa­ter if you have a spare day or so to in­dulge.

By “cruis­ing” you will be able to get a first-hand sense of what Nel­son Man­dela Bay is re­ally all about: i.e. the Bay!

“This is the ul­ti­mate eco-tourism ex­pe­ri­ence and could be the high­light of your stay,” Nel­son Man­dela Bay Tourism con­tin­ues. “This is the ideal way to take in the scenic beauty of its ocean life, meet our whales, dol­phins and seals eye to eye.

“There are many dif­fer­ent op­tions to choose from, whether you pre­fer a char­tered boat or a guided ex­cur­sion or the wind to take you out to sea, we’ll pro­vide what you need.”
