Getting around

Travelling around Southern Africa is fairly easy as there are plenty of formal and informal transport systems. This is an overview of what's available...

Choose a transport option

  • Air Flights

    Major airlines fly into Cape Town and Johannesburg on a daily basis. You won’t get cheaper fares by booking them in Southern Africa so you may as well book them from wherever you are/live.
  • Baz Bus Hop on Hop off

    The Baz Bus is a hop-on, hop-off backpackers bus in South Africa. It’s an easy way to get from A to B and a fun way to meet other travellers. They drop you at your backpacking hostel door.
  • Buy back Car Companies

    Buy a car here for your journey through Southern Africa and save up to 60% in rental fees!
  • Car Hire South Africa

    There are a number of cheap car hire operators in South Africa. All of the cities in South Africa have car hire branches.
  • Long Distance Buses

    There are a number of long distance buses including Translux, Intercape, Greyhound and the Baz Bus (which is the only real backpacker bus).
  • Long distance trains

    Southern Africa does not have a great railroad infrastructure so travelling by train is fairly restrictive (but fun nonetheless).
  • Minibus taxis

    Without doubt, the cheapest way to travel is to use local black transport systems or “minibus taxis”. They require nerves of steel but are definitely the most efficient way to get around pretty much anywhere in South Africa.
