TRANSPORTATION is not just about getting people from one destination to the other.
It’s about making the journey pleasurable and efficient, with good service and comfortable surroundings.
As such Pathfinder has indeed brought a new culture in travelling on Zimbabwe’s roads – reliability and comfort.
You now you can “fly around” by road.
As we welcome two new additions to the Pathfinder Luxury Coaches family, let us also talk luxury. The two new buses will bring the Pathfinder fleet to eight. They will be concentrated on the Harare-Victoria falls route.
The increase in demand of luxury by both local and foreign tourists has indeed forced the company to continue looking at improving standards of travel in Zimbabwe.
The new buses feature 60 sleeper seats, wireless internet, full DSTV laptop plugs and FM radio frequencies.
They are also fitted with climatised air conditioners, a fridge, and coffee dispenser and on board toilet. Apart from the trade mark colours, of red and Pathfinder logo, the coaches come with the head of a jaguar — symbol of Pathfinder.
Pathfinder Luxury Coaches is the leading travel and tour companies in the country providing a comprehensive package for group and intercity travellers between Harare, Bulawayo and the majestic Victoria Falls (Musi O Tunya).
With its main offices on the corner of Nelson Mandela and Fifth street, the luxury coaches have been in existence since 2009 and seek to remain the best in travel.
Formed during the economic hardship that hit Zimbabwe, Pathfinder has grown to become a formidable force in luxury travel in the country.
It has managed to combine the lessons provided by a harsh economic climate and increasing competition from both foreign and local transport. It also has helped improve our services.
This has brought out the best out of Zimbabwe’s travel services.
The company’s marketing manager Chiedza Kurwakumire said the new buses would add luxury for travellers between Harare and Bulawayo.
“The company was established to fulfill a yarning gap in luxury travel in the country particularly for those travelling between Harare, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls.
“We saw the need to improve and increase luxury in travelling along one of Zimbabwe tourism arteries.
“It is within this mould that we have continued to improve our coaches to meet the demand of modern day travellers.
“They are coming with more user friendly features for our clients.
“The addition to the fleet was sourced purely with the business traveller in mind who needs to be in touch with his business and friends hence the emphasis on wifi and computer changing ports,” she said.
Kurwakumire said PLC was not troubled by competition as it spurs the company to do better for the travellers.
“We have been in the business for some time now and we will continue to improve on quality. Competition is actually good since it pushes us to do more for the travellers and the country at large. We were born out of a desire to meet growing need for first class road travel and will continue to bring to the traveller an unmatched experience of travel and luxury,” she said.
