East London (South Africa) Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About East London?
East London began as a port city using the depth of the Buffalo River basin to accept large ships. For many years it was an important trade centre as well as a staging post for British military involvement in south east Africa. Today, the importance of tourism has been recognised and East London actively promotes the delights of its perfect beaches as well as the historic and cultural sights of the city. Once a separate entity, East London has been swallowed up by Buffalo City.

How do I get to East London?
East London has its own regional airport with daily flights to and from major South African airports including Johannesburg Airport and Cape Town Airport. As a result most of the tourists are South African in origin but international connections to East London’s feeder airports mean that a growing number of international tourists make it to the white sandy beaches of the region. Only five miles from the city centre, access to East London is easily gained with transfer buses and taxis or by pre-bookable hire cars collected at the airport.
 
What Should I see in East London?
You can get to see one of the planet’s strangest creatures by visiting the East London Museum which has the first coelacanth ever caught, on display. The biggest attraction of the region is the unparalleled white sandy beaches that border the Indian Ocean. It’s there that most of East London’s tourists spend their time in the city.

East London is a popular destination for tourists in South Africa but its attractions are spread out, requiring a hire car in East London to be able to make the most of your time there.
 
If car hire seems expensive to you and you worry about added extras or driving a car that’s not yours, reassurance is at hand in our East London car hire. We don’t think you’ll find car hire in East London any cheaper than we offer, because we’ve tried. We’ve also made sure that our comprehensive car hire packages in East London put your mind at rest so that after picking up your hire car you can set off with a smile on your face knowing that you’ve got the lowest price car hire in East London as well as the best standard of customer care.
