    I've taken the Grayhound (http://www.greyhound.co.za) a couple of times on that route. Cheap and the overnight through the Karoo will let you enjoy a star-studded night sky! over 7 years ago

    The bus I find to be crowded and uncomfortable. the Shozoloza Meyl is the best option, otherwise rent a car... I travel up and down often... over 7 years ago

    The Baz Bus is a popular and convenient way to get around for those doing the South African backpackers circuit and leaves from most backpackers in Joburg. From there, the Baz Bus heads all the way down the coast to Cape Town - stopping at some other great surf destinations along the way. All of the backpackers in Joburg who are Baz Bus stops will have the current time schedule and be able to make a booking for you.

    The Baz Bus is over R2000 from JHB to CT! How is that cheap?

    I would suggest you post a note at couchsurfing.org to find someone else who is either driving to CT or wants a lift (in which case, hire a car). At that time of year there's a lot of holiday migration from JHB to CT.

    PS If you decide to fly and skip the coast the low-cost airlines are http://www.flymango.com/, https://www.kulula.com/, and https://www.1time.aero/. It might be cheaper to travel from Lanseria airport in JHB so keep that in mind. (It's also a nicer airport.) over 7 years ago

    The easiest way and fastest is by plane. SA-busses is not that reliable and if it does brake you'll be stuck for about 24h. Try kulula airlines or onetime or mango. It should cost about R900 to R1200 depending on the day and time you fly. over 7 years ago

    Mango and 1time.aero are other great and reliable local airlines. For smaller cities use www.flysaa.com, the national carrier. over 7 years ago

    Nationwide Air is a local SA only carrier. Costs about $200, but last time I checked they didn't take foreign credit cards. over 7 years ago
