Getting to and from Hogsback

Shuttle

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 and aim to be in Hogsback between 1pm and 3pm (hopefully no later than 4pm though).

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 and it’s pretty infrequent, but possible.

Baz Bus

The Baz Bus does not drop in Hogsback!

IF YOU ARE ON THE BAZ BUS AND WANT TO BE COLLECTED BY OUR SHUTTLE, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE BUS TRAVELING FROM PE TO DURBAN.  WE DO NOT COLLECT FROM THE OTHER DIRECTION AS IT ARRIVES TOO LATE.

Mainline Buses

If you are on a mainline bus, please make sure you get off at The Windmill Bus Station in East London before 11am and then make your way 300m to The Sugarshack (Walk to the sea and turn left before you drown). 

Airport

We collect from East London airport (R190 per person each way) on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, but your flight must arrive before 11am, or depart after 11.30am.
