Grahamstown Car Rental Mini Guide

There are many things to do in Grahamstown but lots of activities based outside it. If you like golf, hiking, fishing and more then you will need to get a good map or a sat nav system with your Grahamstown hire car to find the locations. Even if you decide to stay in town, you will find a Grahamstown hire car useful for getting around the sights and visiting the great restaurants at night.

To get to Grahamstown there are two airports within ninety minutes of the city; Port Elizabeth and East London. Neither have direct flights from the UK but you can fly into Johannesburg with BA or South African and connect to either airports. From there you can collect a pre booked hire car and drive to Grahamstown.
