Intercape from Windhoek to Capetown

I'm not worried about delays or lack of air conditioning.

What I am looking for is someone to vouch for the safety- or lack thereof- of this trip for a single female. Has anyone taken this bus recently?

Adventure good. Danger bad.

Intercape is the next safest way of traveling between Windhoek and Cape Town, next to only flying.

You will find many other travelers on the bus as well, as Capetown is a popular route.

Intercape is also great about getting out and arriving on time. I suggest to bring your music, a blanket, pillow, and some snack food.

"Intercape Mainliner

There is one company, Intercape Mainliner, which operates luxury vehicles on long-distance routes covering most of the main towns. These are comfortable, with refreshments available, music, videos, toilets and air conditioning. "

from a good guide to Namibia written by a contributor to these forums.

The music and videos aren't anything to get excited about. The toilets are nice to have, and the air conditioning can get uncomfortably cold through the night while you're sleeping.

If you can, I always enjoyed the front seats on the upper deck. I'd try to score those if you can, you'll have more leg room and a great view.
