Baz Bus – for the independent traveller

December 21, 2012

bazbus-logoBaz Bus is mainly advertised as a bus service for back-packers and young people to travel between over 40 towns/cities/villages across South Africa. Designed for the independent traveller, Baz Bus is a fantastic way to explore South Africa, offering independent travellers and backpackers the opportunity to explore the most beautiful towns and cities in South Africa.

All you need is one ticket to your final destination and you can hop on and off as often as you like along the route. The service drops you off and picks you up from your backpacking hostel, lodge or central drop off point.  If you are visiting a place which is off the beaten track private shuttles can meet you to take you to your destination.

Baz Bus is for all backpackers and the young at heart. This friendly bus company offers a service where you can meet great people on the buses and still have the independence to do whatever activities you wish to along the route. You choose where you want to visit and how long you want to stay. 


Baz Bus runs the following routes:

Cape Town » Johannesburg / Pretoria | Johannesburg / Pretoria » Cape Town (via Drakensberg)

Cape Town » Durban | Durban » Cape Town

Cape Town » Port Elizabeth | Port Elizabeth » Cape Town

And with the 7, 14 or 21 day Travel Pass you can travel on Baz Bus in any direction you want and as often as you like within the time period. Your Travel Pass starts on the first day of travel and is valid for 7, 14 or 21 consecutive days. This is a great option for those travellers who do not have a lot of time.

The nearest stop to us at Penny Lane Lodge is just up the road at the BP garage next to the Lord Charles Hotel here in Somerset West. 

We think it’s well worth a try!
