George Airport is 40 km from Mossel bay.
Cape Town is 390 km from Mossel Bay so its an ideal place to stop over if you like to be in a city.

Port Elizabeth is approx 400 km
Roads to Mossel bay are excellent and quickest route is via N2.

If you want to explore the history of Mossel Bay you can visit some of the many museums in the city.
There is lots to do here:
Bungy Jumping
Eating and many bars
Hot water pools Diaz and hartenbos
Game parks
Busses from here to rest of South Africa
Outdoor sports
Whale watching
Seal Watching....and it goes on and on.................

This is a very central place from which to explore the garden Route. please note that its a city, and therefore for those who prefer to be in a city,
Its a city built around a harbour... so got all that goes with having a harbour in the CBD>
