howzit,

I will travel by Bazbus through South Africa in December and January. i will start in Cape town in the end of December and will stay along the garden route and wildcoast before going to Durban (around 14 January). but i would like to find out what the possibilites are to go to Maputo from Durban. Are there any bus companies that offer this route? in my LP it says Panthera Azul, but i can't reach them, so maybe they dont exist anymore... i checked greyhound, translux and intercape and most of them only offer Joburg - Maputo..
i would like to travel from Durban to Maputo and then back from Maputo to either Manzini or to Nelspruit? so does anybody have any suggestions to travel from Durban to Maputo and then from Maputo to Nelspruit?
Maybe my best option is to go by Bazbus form Durban to Manzini, and catch a local minibus to Maputo (safety?), and go on the way back from Maputo to Nelspruit by Greyhound or another coach line? Mozman, what do u think?

Thanks a lot!

regards,
Joris

Hi Joris, if it's organized reliability you want then you will have to catch a Greyhound Dbn to Jhb and then JHb to Maputo. Certainly no direct bus links. You may want to look at www.saairlink.co.za that has flights Dbn to Maputo on Mon Wed and Fri leaving 10:10 and arriving 11:25. Otherwise go Baz to Manzini, find a backpackers there and they will put you on the right transport to Maputo.

Cheers Mike
