Stephen P.April 15, 2019 | 

The bus travels with bogus bus crew pretending to be one of the drivers and drop at beitbridge,stealing passengers hand lugauge,the toilet smells bad and it delays to much at the border at southafrican side

Silibaziso M.March 5, 2019 | 

I am overally happy with the service provided by Intercape. The mild delay we experienced is explainable looking at that Intercape does not have control of border formalities. I will choose to travel with Intercape again and again.

Michelle N.December 22, 2018 | 

Staff need to be more assisting

Jeyner Z.October 5, 2018 |
