How to Travel Around South Africa

Bangkok Travel deals


On the second Wednesday of the month, Kristin Addis from Be My Travel Muse writes a guest column featuring tips and advice on solo female travel. It’s an important topic I can’t adequately cover, so I brought in an expert to share her advice. This week she talks about her recent trip to South Africa

When I started planning my South Africa trip, a lot of questions went through my mind: Is a country that big easy to travel around? Is it expensive? What is even possible?

The resources I found online were vague, negative, or simply nonexistent. But after traveling through the country for close to a month, I found a wide variety of reasonably affordable ways to get around. So, to fill the void, here is a breakdown on how to get around South Africa:

By Bus


There are several companies that run in the country including Greyhound, Intercape, and Baz Bus, which caters specifically to backpackers.

Baz Bus runs a route from Johannesburg to Cape Town (or vice versa) with several stops along the way. You can hop on or off whenever you want and can begin your trip anywhere, but as those two cities have major airports, most people start in one or the other, or sometimes Durban. There’s no limit on how long you can take to go from one end to the other. (Matt says: I’ve taken similar buses in New Zealand and Australia. They can be good for people who want to meet other travelers.)

One-way fares on Baz Bus are available starting at around 500 Rand (about $41) for the shortest journey, which takes about two hours, and increase from there. For those looking to save a bit of cash and use the bus to travel across the country, there is a 21-day hop-on and hop-off pass, which runs at 4,200 Rand ($355). Baz Bus is not a big money saver as the fares are more than the train and other bus companies, but it is a convenient option for those who are happy to travel along the popular routes and meet other backpackers. The route includes the big cities in South Africa, the famous Drakensberg mountain range, popular spots along the coast, and the famous Garden Route in the Western Cape.

The drawbacks to taking the bus include dealing with a lack of transport once you’re at your destination, though shuttles to various local attractions, such as the bungee jump in Wilderness, are sometimes available at additional cost. You’ll also need to be flexible with your schedule since the shuttles don’t run every day. The biggest drawback for me was that the buses run along one set route and only go to the most popular tourist destinations, and drop off only at certain backpackers’ accommodations, so for those who like to head off the beaten path, it’s not a great option.

For one-off trips, Greyhound and Intercapeserve various bus ports around the country. The buses are large, air-conditioned, comfortable, and filled with locals, not backpackers. Be sure to bring along snacks as the buses run on a tight schedule and most stops are very brief, if they happen at all.

Prices are more expensive than Baz Bus for shorter journeys of 2 hours or so ($30-$40), but cheaper for longer journeys, such as from Durban to Cape Town, which takes 15 hours ($56). During the high season (December and June through August), you should book ahead as buses fill up quickly.

By Air


Flying around South Africa isn’t that expensive. Budget Airlines like Mango and Kulula serve all major, and even minor, airports in the country with several flights per day. They are easily booked online using any major credit card. For example, a one way ticket from Johannesburg to Durban is $67.

Even last minute flights, as long as they still have quite a few seats left, tend not to go up in price if it’s a major route. For a last-minute planner like me, that was a real treat! For less common routes or smaller airports, prices go up the closer the date nears. Unsurprisingly, inconvenient times and early morning flights tend to be the cheapest. As with most budget airlines the world-over, checked baggage and meals onboard cost extra.

By Car


When I told my friends I was planning to drive solo through South Africa, they immediately talked me out of it, envisioning dangerous roads and thieves with no help should something go wrong. In truth, road-tripping through South Africa is not much of a problem at all, as other cars are passing by all the time should a breakdown occur and South Africans are incredibly friendly and helpful.

That’s not to say driving in South Africa is without risk. There are carjackings from time to time, and break-ins are common, but being aware of this and taking precautions to keep valuables hidden and doors locked greatly reduces the risks.

Regardless, if you would rather not travel alone, there are options. You can post on travel forums such as Nomadic Matt’s, Thorn Tree, the Africa Backpacking Facebook group, or Couchsurfing.org. Gumtree and hostels also are good ways to find ridesharing buddies. There are always travelers looking for a ride to some off the beaten path destination. (I found my partner in crime through a friend of mine.)

Renting a car is the most convenient way to get around since you can get to many out of the way parks, cities, and destinations, and, when splitting gas and rental fees with one or more other passengers, beats the price of Baz Bus.

I rented a Volkswagon Vevo on a car comparison website, which we booked online and picked up in person. The price worked out to be $250 for two weeks including gas, the fee for dropping off in a different city than we rented in (we picked the car up in Johannesburg and dropped it off in Cape Town), and insurance. Gas runs at an average of about $1 per liter at the time of this writing, and, if driving a small car like we had, mileage is pretty good. We also gave rides to other backpackers we met along the way in exchange for a bit of gas money.

While it’s possible to buy a cheap car and sell it later, the paperwork can sometimes take months to go through and thus is not the best for travelers who don’t plan to spend ages in the country.

For most of the popular destinations in South Africa, a small manual car will do, though a 4×4 would have been helpful for a few of the lesser-visited places that we went to during our road trip, such as the amphitheater hike in the Drakensberg mountains. Had we taken Baz Bus, we would have spent an extra $100 per person, and missed some of the areas we visited that Baz Bus doesn’t drive to.

By Train


South Africa has a lot of train tracks. Most aren’t currently in use as the population has increasingly come to rely on the extensive highway system. However, major cities in South Africa are still served by a few train companies that range from cheap to high luxury.

Shosholoza Meyl long-distance trains serve Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, Durban, East London, Johannesburg, Queenstown, and East London. They’re comfortable, safe, and make various stops at smaller towns along the way. The fares are some of the cheapest available for any mode of transport in South Africa, running as low as $28 for a sleeper berth from Johannesburg to Durban. You can visit the company’s timetable for more information on fares and stops.

For those who are interested some luxury, the famous Blue Train which runs form Pretoria to Cape Town, costs $1,300 one-way for a shared berth during low season and goes up from there. It’s an expensive but luxurious experience that includes wine, cigars, great food and comfortable compartments.

Safety

On the last remaining issue of safety: South Africa isn’t more dangerous for a solo traveler than your typical big city in the United States. I was surprised to see that the murder rate of Detroit is actually significantly higher than that of South Africa. That said, muggings are still common, especially amongst tourists and particularly in Cape Town and Johannesburg. Given the high level of rape and theft in South Africa, I wouldn’t advise hitchhiking (and this is something I love to do!).

Additionally, one shouldn’t walk around alone at night, be flashy, or leave things showing in the car, but much of that is true around the world.

There are numerous ways to get around South Africa, and after testing serval methods, I think the best is a car rental. Nothing else offers the flexibility, convenience, and reasonable price tag. If a car rental isn’t your thing and you’re solo, I’d consider the Baz Bus.

That said, regardless of which of the above transport methods you choose, South Africa is easy and relatively affordable to travel around, whether you’re solo, in a group, or a duo.

Kristin Addis is a former investment banker who sold all of her belongings and bid California goodbye in favor of traveling solo through Asia while searching for off-the-beaten-path adventures. There’s almost nothing she won’t try and almost nowhere she won’t explore. You can find more of her musings at Be My Travel Muse or on Twitter and Facebook.

7 Things I Learned While Driving Through the American South

Bangkok Travel deals

sunset of the Mississippi river in Natchez, MSThe American South has a mixed reputation in U.S. popular culture: it’s home to sweet tea, greasy but delicious food, country music and the blues, friendly and helpful people, and beautiful and diverse landscapes. However, it’s also supposedly filled with guns, racists, bigots, and rednecks, and it’s the subject of other negative stereotypes.

The first time I visited the South was in 2006 on a road trip across the United States. As liberal Yankee, I wanted the negative stereotypes to be true and my beliefs to be validated. Instead, I found an incredible region of helpful people, a countryside dotted with rolling hills, farms, and forests, and hearty food rich in flavor. From Charleston to New Orleans and everything in between, the South was extraordinary.

Now, nine years later, on another road trip through the South, I wondered if it would provoke the same warm feelings. America is a more politically divided country. The South has drifted to the right politically, and I wondered about heated debates about “that president,” gay rights, and more. Would I feel like a stranger in a strange land?

After spending months exploring the region, I realized that the Southern states, encompassing a large area of the United States, are not culturally and politically monolithic as it once was. There is prodigious variety here, and the region left me with many impressions:

The food will make you happy

southern bbq
Food plays a central of a role in Southern life and is rich in both flavor and diversity. Each region has its own specialties — barbecue in Missouri, Memphis, and North Carolina; Creole food and oysters in New Orleans; Cajun food on the Bayou; fried chicken in Nashville; the growing organic food scene in Atlanta; and upscale dining in Oxford, Mississippi. I pictured Southern food as greasy, fried, and heavy fare. While much of it is hearty, the richness in flavor and variety was outstanding. There is something for everyone, and if you go hungry while visiting, it’s your own fault.

Music makes the region go ’round

honkey tonks in NashvilleMusic is a way of life here. The sound of live music filled the air everywhere. Nashville, Memphis, and New Orleans are famous music haunts, but even the tiniest towns have robust live music scenes. From jazz to country to blues to bluegrass, there’s a music soul to this region. I danced, jammed, and sang, and it was wonderful.

The people really are friendly — There’s a common belief that the South is home to the friendliest people in the country. I’m not sure I believe that, but I would agree that Southerners are certainly friendly. They are cheerful, talkative, and incredibly helpful. Strangers waved hello, inquired about my day, were quick with invites for drinks, and generally made an effort to make me feel welcome. The folks here have hospitality down to an art. Plus, they seem to have an endless supply of sweet tea and I can’t get enough of that stuff!

The landscape is stunning

the bayou in Louisiana
The Southern landscape is beautiful and diverse. The Smoky Mountains are a vast, dense forest filled with inviting rivers, lakes, and trails. The Louisiana bayou’s is haunting with moss-covered trees and eerie calm. The hills of Appalachia stretch for wooded miles, the whole Mississippi Delta, with its swamps, marshes, and biodiversity is gorgeous. And the beaches of Florida are so white they sparkle. I could spend months hiking and exploring all the parks and rivers in the region. (Mental note to future self: Do that.)

To understand it, you have to understand its past

historic homes in natchezAs a former high school history teacher (I taught right out of college), I was excited to explore the area’s colonial cities and Civil War sites. Cities like Natchez, New Orleans, Vicksburg, Savannah, Memphis, Richmond, and Charleston helped shape the country, and their history and influence are important to the story of America. It was in these cities that many American cultural and political leaders were born, the Civil War began, battles were won and lost, the rise and fall of slavery was sown, and many of the biggest names in American cultural history were born. These cities and their history help explain a lot about Southern pride, culture, and current feelings.

It’s politically conservative — Though the Ashvilles, Nashvilles, Atlantas, Austins, and other big cities of the region have become more liberal (thanks in part to open-minded college students, Northern transplants, and hipsters), the rest of the region has moved more to the right recently. Besides country music, radio options seem to consist only of Christian lectures and music or right-wing talk radio warning of immigrants bringing in polio, evil Muslims, and Obama the antichrist. I overheard many conversations about “that guy” (the President) and “queers.” The big cities may be liberal, but in the rest of the South, it’s as conservative as conservative can be.

It’s racist (but it’s not 1950s violent racist) — I found the racism in the modern South to be more an “off-the-cuff racism” than a deep-seated hatred. It was based stereotypes that lingered because they simply become habit. From the B&B owner who made an offhand comment about Jews to the guys in Nashville who talked about blacks being workers because “that’s the way it is,” to the folks in Atlanta making fun of gays, to college kids in Mississippi telling me racist jokes (or singing racist songs on buses), most came across simply as unthinking. If asked if their remarks were prejudiced, they would probably say “No, it was just a joke.” But it’s still very offensive. No one seems to question these ideas, which is why these attitudes seem to linger. Does this mean I think everyone is a deep seated racist? No, not at all. I think the South as made incredible strides towards equality. This racism is born of habit and lack of critical thinking, and with the move toward the political right, I don’t see it going away anytime soon. I had hoped this stereotype would turn out to be outdated but sadly, it was not.

Despite its flaws, I grow to love the area more with each visit. It’s one of the most culturally rich areas in the country. There’s a reason why its cities are booming.

Go visit the region, get out of the cities, travel through the mountains, and find your way into the small towns. You’ll discover friendly people, heavenly food, amazing music, and an appreciation for a slow pace of life.

Travel breaks down barriers and misconceptions about people and places. The more you travel, the more you understand people (even when you don’t agree with them). The South and I may not agree on a lot of issues, but it’s not the region the negative stereotypes make it out to be. It’s a vibrant, lively, interesting, and friendly part of the United States.

And one more people should get to know.

Hello and welcome back to the Bangkok Travelbug and a special welcome to our new subscribers. In this May 2015 issue, we will depart from our usual practice of presenting our visits a place at a time.

Instead we’ll roam free over the area around Ang Thong city to visit some of the attractions there. I had originally chosen four temples in Pho Thong district, that’s just north-west of Ang Thong city. Each of these temples has a unique feature or attraction, natural or man-made.

Discover Scuba Diving 2 Boat Dives at Koh Tao 1 day

Bangkok Travel deals

Discover Scuba Diving (one day try dive program)

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

Our instructors will teach you basic theory and familiarize you with the equipment before accompanying you on two beautiful, controlled dives to a limited depth of 12 meters at one of the fantastic dive destinations around Koh Tao. Our Discover Scuba diving program in Koh Samui have a maximum ratio of two students per instructor.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

The Fun Part
Discover Scuba Diver There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.

What You Learn
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:

Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step
Prerequisites
To take Discover Scuba Diving, you must be at least 10 years old. If you are between 8 and 10 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Babble Maker program available just for you.

You are not require to get medical clearance to take the discover scuba diving course. However, please take a look at the PADI Discover Scuba Diving statement and should you answer yes to any of the questions, please consult a physician before signing up for the course.

In accordance to PADI Flying After Diving guidelines you should not fly within 18 hours after your last dive at 14:00.

Course price includes full equipment rental, PADI materials required to complete the course, application fee (certification), lunch and refreshment on board, traveler scuba diving and hyperbaric chamber insurance, A/C  transfers to and from your hotel.
