Should I book my accommodation in advance?
Most people prefer to play it by ear and book hostels as they go along. During the busy summer season some places do get full and we do recommend booking a few days in advance, especially for double rooms.
As well as an unbeatable safety record, Bazbus is also famous for its punctuality and comfort. In Africa, where things often run later than scheduled, we are very proud to say we achieve a 98.5% on-time arrival for each trip.
Our buses are 16-seater semi-luxury buses with trailers capable of carrying surfboards and bicycles.
