Fairies Shuttle to Hogsback

Getting to and from Hogsback


The Baz Bus does not drop in Hogsback

BAZ BUS

IF YOU ARE ON THE BAZ BUS AND WANT TO BE COLLECTED BY OUR SHUTTLE, PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT DIRECTION BAZ BUS YOU ARE USING.

We run a shuttle from Hogsback to East London (R160 per person each way) and Chintsa (R190 per person each way) and back to Hogsback, every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.  We depart Hogsback at 8.30am and aim to depart East London and Chintsa between 11am and 1pm.

 
We collect passengers from the PE to Durban Baz Bus at The Sugarshack in East London.

We DO NOT pick up from the DBN->PE Baz Bus, as it arrives too late.  If you are traveling on that direction Baz Bus, it will be necessary to over-night in Buccaneers in Chintsa or Sugarshack in East London.


Some days: we run a shuttle from Port Elizabeth (R250 per person) and Grahamstown (R160 per person). Times are variable. We also run a shuttle to Grahamstown (R160 per person) and Port Elizabeth  (R250 per person) on an informal flexible basis.

Mainline Buses

If you are on a mainline bus, please make sure you get off at The Windmill Bus Station before 11am and then make your way 300m to The Sugarshack (Walk to the sea and turn left before you drown).  We collect from East London airport (R190 per person each way) on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, but your flight must arrive before 11am, or depart after 11.30am. 

How to find us

We are based at the entrance to Hogsback, on your right hand side if you are coming from Alice or King Williams Town. In case you are coming from the Cathcart side you will find us right at the end of the main road on your left. When you are in front the Hogsback INFORMATION center, look across the road for a large green sign at the top of a dirt road which breaks off the main road. This sign will say, Away with the Fairies, with an arrow pointing down the road. Follow it to the next sign pointing right, the first right, and you will find yourself in our parking area soon.

We are about an 90 minute drive from East London Airport.

PLEASE AVOID SEYMOUR’S PASS

YOU WILL GET STUCK

If your GPS sends you up a dirt road hill from Seymour don’t believe it, in fact throw your GPS out of your window, because if you don’t you won’t make it to us, and you will probably have to pay hefty recovery fees.  Only very heavy duty 4×4’s can make it up the hill, so unless you’ve got one please don’t try. 

Take the dirt road from Seymour across the dam, past Elundini.  This is a very good dirt road and most vehicles will pass without incident.

Extra shuttles are available at a fixed cost of R1000 for up to 5pax and standard fares for every passenger above.
