The luxury bus ride that took us home away from home

Last week, the Heir and I got on an Intercape from Harare to Johannesburg. The Intercape is the most luxurious bus we have used so far on the trip. PHOTO | COURTESY

What you need to know:

  • We were in the lower part of the double-decker bus dubbed the Sleepliner by its owners. The legroom on the seats was akin to that of a business class flight and the seats collapse back, not quite like a business class flight but definitely more than your average bus.
  • On previous trips on Intercape, the bus has provided food to its clientele. Turns out, this is no longer being done. I only found this out when I asked one of my neighbours when the food would come.
  • But, one man’s misfortune often being another woman (and child)’s fortune, this allowed the Heir and I to go to the restaurant adjoining the petrol station where we ordered a bacon cheeseburger and chips.

Last week, the Heir and I got on an Intercape from Harare to Johannesburg. Dude had gone ahead 24 hours before as he had to comply with visa requirements to enter South Africa before August 3.
