Nelspruit taxis? Uber?

We will arrive into Nelspruit at about 1PM on a bus and need to get to our accommodation. Is there Uber/bolt? If not can somebody recommend a reliable taxi service?

Yes , in the residential streets uphill and South from the center.

I also took a minibus taxi to Eswatini from the taxi ranks and I felt safe there too.

Nelspruit has no Uber and very little / or no taxi services (not minibuses). I would check with your accommodation if it’s safe to walk. It may not be. You won’t know where you are going, and be carrying luggage. I know I’m risk averse, but being a frequency visitor to SA, I wouldn’t put myself in any potential danger

Your accommodation could maybe help with logistics too. They may know a local driver

Pierre W also travels very differently to me

Just an update, we used Kelly's taxis +27823525728. Which charges a fixed rate or 120R for every trip in town, which I thought was a little expensive but they gave a good service.
