Zenica on Tuesday morning.
The 127 participants took off yesterday as part of the Hajj pilgrimage; a yearly event in the Islamic calendar whereby Muslims from around the world descend on the cities of Mecca and Medina.
The pilgrims - comprising of people from Sarajevo, Zenica, Tuzla, Mostar, Kakanj, Tesanj, Travnik, Jajce, Visoko, Vitez and Bosanska Krupa - will drive to Istanbul where they will catch a flight to Jordan, before re-boarding buses to continue their journey into Saudi Arabia.
People of all ages are included in the Bosnians to make this year's Hajj pilgrimage by bus.
At the age of 83, Sarajevo's Aziz Frlj is the oldest person to participate, while 20-year-old Elma Talic, of Zenica, is the youngest.
This year's Hajj is expected to fall between the 24th and 29th of October, with the Bosnian bus travellers predicted to return to BiH on November 3.
Overall, more than 1,200 people from Bosnia and Herzegovina are expected take part in the pilgrimage this year.
