Katima Mulilo to Windhoek via minibus?

We have extensive experience traveling around Africa using the minibus system. I thought we could just show up in Katima Mulilo and expect there to be minibuses headed to Windhoek. Someone told me they heard that there aren't minibuses there that head down to Windhoek, is that true? If so, are there any other options besides flying? I know there's an Intercape bus that makes the trip a couple days after we are looking to travel. Thanks for your help!

yes you can take a mini bus, but not advisable, those guys are not good drivers!

rather go for intercape then, its an overnight bus.

As Chris said, the mini buses are not recommended and I would rather walk than to get into one of them. Most of the accidents in this country on the national roads a mini bus is involved.

Change your plan and make use of the Intercape Bus.

As already mentioned, it is possible to get a minibus down to Windhoek...but they don't exactly have schedules, mind you the least of your worries could be having to hang around waiting for one. They have a tendency to be very overcrowded, rarely have air conditioning and drive like lunatics....so I would take the good advice above and get the Intercape. Much safer, you know exactly when you are departing and how long it will take and you won't be squashed in like sardines. They do tend to play a lot of religious movies, so if that is not your bag then make sure you have an ipod or something to droen it out.
