About


Runs in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth. But we also run in Cullinan and Parys, where there are B&B options if you want to also make your outing an escapist get-away weekend stay over, rather than returning home (see list of accommodation venues below with very reasonable B&B rates) - both towns offer much to see & do.

The Mystery Ghost Jaunt has replaced our Mystery Ghost Bus, but is similar to it, except that you use your own vehicle (or share with friends) in a vehicle convoy (like a fun car rally), where you bring a picnic basket to snack on the way (include water). If you are a big group you may want to use a bigger vehicle (or hire one), and if you don't want to have an appointed sober driver, you can use Uber (round trip of about 50km in all cities, except in Cullinan/Parys which are both round trips of about 20km in each each town). Either way, this works out at a very reasonable cost for groups.

This fun, interactive outing has both in-the-car and out-the-car stories, where a fun outgoing person reads from a script in your car for some of the venues we pass by, and where your host presents all the out-of-car stops at other venues. This fun part ride/part walk, has a toilet stop midway.

The jaunt also includes the science of the paranormal, use of our dowsing rods, using ghost hunting apps (which we shall tell you how to download onto your cellphone), and finally entering a graveyard.

You and your guests must read our T's & C's here before purchasing tickets.

We run Public Events, and for Private/Corporate Events, as shown below.

Booking details are below.
