...Some time back you wrote about a bus service used primarily by young people to travel around SA. Could you provide details? - Pam Whitford
The Baz Bus service runs between Cape Town and Johannesburg/Pretoria. There are two routes, one via Drakensberg and the other via Swaziland. The service is very popular among backpackers and the operators have links with more thank 180 hostels and lodges on the route. The service is considered very safe as passengers are dropped off and collected right outside their guesthouses or lodges. there are various ticketing options, the most popular being the 7-, 14- and 21-day passes, which allow passengers to stop over wherever they wish within the specified time on any route. There are also tickets without any time limit. For details call 021-439-2323 or visit www.bazbus.com.
