Road Travel in SA
There are literally numerous ways of getting 'round SA using the road network. There are seemingly endless routes and detours one can take, and the roads are better than what you have probably heard! There are many vehicles you can take, buses, taxis, hired cars, purchase a second hand car...the list goes on and on!
There are around 5 or so regularly scheduled bus operators travelling country wide, at pretty reasonable rates! However be advised, sometimes it is cheaper and safer to travel by plane. The buses, as is the case anywhere in the world, take about 5 hours longer than a regular car, so if you hate long times in a bus, avoid this otherwise, it can be great fun, unless you break down in the desert...trust me, I know...!!!
