The concept is simple: buy one ticket to your final destination and hop on and off as often as you like along the route. There are over 180 backpackers and lodges to choose from and more than 40 cities, towns or villages to visit en-route. You get picked up and dropped off at the door of your backpacker hostel. You can travel in one direction until you reach your final destination. There is no time limit on your ticket!

Start in Durban and travel in one direction to Cape Town and RETURN back to Durban. Minimum recommended travel time is 18 days but you can take as long as you want!
