Laura Koschade Hello travelers! I would love to visit SA and explore as much as I can, but I don't yet know the best way to get around. Do people usually rent a car if they're staying for a while and want to explore a wide area? And is that safe for a solo traveler? It seems like that option would be pretty pricey, and I've heard that the area can be dangerous. I would love some feedback! 😊 Thank you and have a fabulous day! 🐘

Gaby Pijpers I always travel alone in SA and the bus is the cheapest way, i can recommend intercape bus and city to city but please avoid johannesburg busstation! You also have the bazbus but that one is very expensive. 22 Jan 2018 - 13:30
