Getting around South Africa by bus

TThe extensive road network in South Africa means that bus or coach travel is a simple and often very cost effective option for travellers. It has become the go-to travelling option for the more economically-conscious locals and many international travellers choose coach tours or bus travel as a hassle free option. It's a wonderful way of relaxing and taking in the astounding scenery between destinations. 

There are a number of bus and coach operators, offering a great range of products for every price point. Some of these trips even include being served coffee and biscuits with a selection of movies to entertain you while en route to your destination.

If you're on a back-packing holiday across South Africa wanting to explore smaller out of the way places, Baz Bus offers a hop on hop off network that takes you door to door at your leisure. 

You will be glad to know that some companies offer cross-border trips in case you want to visit neighbouring countries in Southern Africa such as Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

Champagne Sports Resort in the Central Drakensberg is the perfect venue for both business and leisure tourists. The resort is home to an 18-hole championship golf course, roaming herds of blesbok and impala and 5 dams stocked with trout and bass. It offers a variety of sports and cultural activities. This resort set in the tranquil surrounds of the Central Drakensberg, with magnificent views of Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak, combines high-tech conferencing, luxury accommodation and first-rate leisure activities. BEST TIME TO VISIT The Drakensberg is a year-round destination - although it can be cool in winter, especially when there is snow on the mountains.

The Victoria Street Market in Durban is unique in South Africa. Barrels of Indian spices and incense infuse the air of this flea market and a visit is essential for those who want to experience Durban's relaxed Afro-Oriental atmosphere and pick up some great bargains. The market is a melting pot of vibrancy and you’ll definitely walk out with a souvenir or two.
