What is Bazbus?

Bazbus has become THE way to travel around South Africa in a safe, flexible, and fun way!

A South African institution since 1995, Bazbus covers the major tourist destinations, but our drivers also know the hidden gems, the stops between the stops that tourists would never find, and are also happy to share stories of what life was and is like in South Africa along the way. Our unique hop-on hop-off system means you are in total control of where you go and how long for, with buses every single day in all directions.

Whether you want a one-week trip fully planned in advance, or to just hop on a bus and decide as you go, Bazbus is perfect for every type of traveler. Don’t believe us? Talk to ex-Bazbus travelers, or read reviews and blogs all over the internet and you will see that Bazbus is the cheapest, easiest, and most enjoyable way to experience this amazing country.

How it Works: Buy a ticket, Hop on, get off at any stop (hop off) and use our unique login system to choose when you want to hop on the next bus! It’s that easy… learn more here
