NewG7Mainliner 2018

Another year bites the dust, and while everyone is getting ready to unwind, we at Intercape are rolling up our sleeves to get ready for our busiest time of the year. It has been our pleasure since 1979 to help people safely travel to their loved ones.

Our route network connects seven Southern Africa countries namely South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi. Our fleet of 160 luxury single- and double-decker coaches stand ready to help you travel home or to create an unforgettable holiday experience. Each year over 1.4 million passengers make use of our services. Our Sleepliner and Mainliner coaches offer you a luxurious journey. And you can conveniently book your bus tickets online or by contacting our call centre at 021 380 4400.

Only the Best Coaches for Our Customers

Intercape believes that safety should trump all other priorities. We pride ourselves in staying at the forefront of the latest transport innovations. The new I6 Plus and Marcopolo G7 Mainliner double decker coaches takes travelling in luxury to the next level. Together with safety, we go out of our way to make your journey as comfortable as possible.

These stylish coaches include double-padded headrests, air conditioning, improved toilets facilities, special safety features, reading lights, and USB charging points. The special Intertainment channel offers you a selection of feature films, sport programmes, kids’ entertainment, music videos, talk shows, movie reviews, and documentaries. The overboard entertainment is included in the price of your bus ticket.

We are also very proud of our G7 Sleepliners. The highly comfortable sleeper seats, with extra legroom and a leg rest, are ideal for long distance trips. Arrive at your destination in tiptop shape after sleeping during the overnight section of your trip. You can rest at peace with your seat belt secured. And the on-board entertainment will make your trip even more enjoyable. The G7 Sleepliners are equipped with air conditioning, plus an on-board toilet and washing facilities.


Did you know? Intercape was the first company to introduce the Sleepliner business class seats on intercity routes in Southern Africa.

Serving the Community

Intercape not only focuses on helping people travel across Southern Africa with more ease, we also look for other opportunities to contribute to the community. We were very pleased to again be involved with the Angus Buchan “It’s Time” events.

The 2018 events were hosted in Cape Town (24 March) and Pretoria (27 October). Thousands of Christians gathered together at the annual prayer events with the famous farmer-evangelist. To assist people to attend these events, Intercape offered a convenient charter service for large groups travelling to the two locations. For more information on upcoming prayer events, visit
