 In Bus Travel, Citiliner, South Africa

It’s so hard to believe that we are faced with the end of yet another year. Have you made holiday plans yet? If you’d like to go somewhere special this year and spend some quality time with your family, don’t stop reading.

We’ve compiled a list of our top holiday spots for 2016 that will make you want to book your Citiliner bus ticket right away!


Muizenberg is a hotspot for surfing, kite surfing and land sailing. Just throw in some sun and a light breeze and you have yourself a fantastic summer holiday destination. Go ‘stall’ shopping at the Muizenberg Flea Market and see what gifts you can find for your family and friends.

If you’re not spending long, lazy days on the beach, you can go surfing, browse through fascinating stores and keep yourself fed on the most delicious seafood you’ll taste in South Africa.


This wouldn’t be a proper ‘top holiday destination’ list without old Durban. We’re talking long walks on the Golden Mile, epic nightlife expeditions and endless fun at uShaka Marine World. That’s all we’re going to say on the subject because what more could you want in a summer holiday destination?


Another KZN favourite of ours! Bust out the sunglasses, swimsuits and cocktails because Umhlanga is your more up-market holiday destination with flair. Be it a guest house or hotel room, where ever you stay, you will have an extraordinary view of the ocean and that’s really all that matters.

Simon’s Town

Progress comes slowly to Simon’s Town making it a glorious little destination in which to relax and break away from the stress of the city. The whales in False Bay sometimes come over to Simon’s Town so if you’re lucky you might spot one. Play with the penguins on Boulders Beach, another most memorable experience. Don’t miss out!


Okay, we’re over beaches now. Let’s rather go to Knysna and walk with the elephants. Populated by all things nature, Knysna will capture your heart if you aren’t too fond of the beach. Visit the Elephant Park and book yourself a stay on a houseboat on the lagoon or at a forest lodge. Just don’t forget your heart here when you leave.

Jeffreys Bay

Maybe we lied about that ‘over beaches now’ bit but we just had to add Jeffreys Bay as a final thought. Jeffreys Bay is the king of surf spots. Even surf movies such as Blue Crush 2 have been filmed here! If you don’t own a board or an inclination to surf, no worries, you can go tandem skydiving, go on adventure 4×4 trails or marvel at the treasures at the Jeffreys Bay Shell Museum.

See a destination you like? Don’t spend hundreds of rands on petrol getting to your holiday destination this year. Let Citiliner take you where you’d like to be safely and comfortably. Take a look at our route map, pick a route and book your ticket and travel more for less this summer.
