Such a horrible bus - bus came a day later we slept at the Cape Town station- and when the bus finally arrived it was not iLula bus it was written BM bus - they had to sweep the bus while we were packing our clothes 🤮
Had a great journey, would like the staff to supervise in between stops though, a bit of consideration is needed to those clients that adjust their sits not taking consideration of the person sitting behind.. That was a challenge.
