Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and is a fascinating mix of cultures and ideas. It's the main entry point for visitors coming to South Africa and the transport hub of the country. Visitors doing a longer trip in South Africa will find Johannesburg has the most options for booking private transport like coach or minibus rentals.
A road trip across South Africa is the best way to see everything this diverse country has to offer. From beaches to desert, mountains to forest, each stretch of road brings unforgettable views from the window. As the country's transport hub, Johannesburg is the best place to hire a coach for a trip in South Africa. But there is also a lot to see in the city, like Nelson Mandela's old house, the Apartheid Museum, and the Cradle of Humankind.
There are around 30 different coach hire companies in Johannesburg, all offering a wide fleet of vehicles. The coach hire industry focuses on upmarket clients, either local businesses or international visitors. Facilities on board are generally excellent and vehicles from 22 to 70 seaters are available.
As a general guide expect prices to start at around €500 for a mid size coach for full day hire when staying in the Johannesburg region. Most hires include a daily number of kilometres (often around 300). All companies will offer customised quotes and on our site you can compare different companies like SA Coach Charters and Bus Rentals on 5 Bender St, Coachman on 74 Pretorius St, and Eldo Coaches on 316 Lenasia Rd.
Having a private driver is essential if you're going to sample the local Johannesburg beer. With most beers the warning is to not drink and drive. But Johannesburg beer warns its drinkers “don't drink and walk on the road. You may be killed.” It's strong stuff so it's best you have someone waiting to take you home.
Many of the coach rental companies also have a fleet of smaller luxury minibuses, seating between 8 and 16 passengers. However, the local market for minibuses is much larger than for coaches, so there are also a range of cheaper minibuses for hire. These minibuses range from the completely battered and rundown to the modern and clean. When booking a minibus it's essential to verify the age and condition of the vehicle, as you don't want a long journey spoilt by a breakdown or the minibus door dropping off. We recommend a dedicated coach company for booking a minibus, as these only have modern vehicles.
O.R Tambo International (JBG) or Johannesburg Airport is the largest in Africa and the main entry point for visitors to South Africa. Redeveloped for the football world cup it has modern facilities and a wonderful range of dining facilities that showcase the diversity of South African food. Almost everyone arriving at O.R Tambo pre books their airport transfer, either through their hotel or one of the many private companies. This is generally because of people's perceptions of the local safety situation, but it's also the cheapest airport transfer.
From the airport expect to pay around R400 – 500 (€30 – 40) for most destinations in Johannesburg. These prices are for one passenger, and there is usually a surcharge of approx. R50 for each additional passenger. On your first experience of Jo'burg's roads you'll appreciate why a local driver is essential. As traffic accelerates into tiny spaces and the Highway Code is thrown out of the window you'll be glad that your driver knows the alternative rules. Compare airport transportation quotes on our website from companies like Rhino Shuttles in Randburg, Maesela Tours and Shuttle in South Hills, and Transfers South Africa in Mayberry Park.
Lanseria Airport (HLA) is to the west of Johannesburg and is useful for domestic flights. While O.R Tambo is surrounded by busy roads and chaos, Lanseria is situated in a delightful area of countryside where wild animals roam free – fortunately they're kept off the runway. It's preferable to land here for a domestic flight as the transfer times are much shorter, even if it's a similar distance away. Expect similar prices of around R400 – 500 for most destinations.
Johannesburg has three different types of taxi.
You'll find taxi ranks on most major streets but these are for local African taxis. This is the main form of public transport and involves 16 seater minivans that create new definitions for the word overcrowded. Drivers blare out music, seats seem to have been ripped apart by lions, and space for your bum is extremely limited. In short, it's an authentic local experience but not for the feint hearted.
Most visitors use a private taxi. These are either dedicated taxi companies who predominately service local clients and are distinguished in the same way every taxi around the world is distinguished: a TAXI sign on the roof. Most have metres and you can ask for them to be turned on or negotiate a fare in advance. These taxis are best for single journeys over short distances.
There are also a large number of taxi companies that specialise in services for international visitors and business clients. These taxis are more comfortable and offer better value when making multiple journeys. For trips across the city and to outlying attractions you can negotiate a day hire rate, and you'll find all the drivers are eager and experienced working with tourists. On our website you can compare different taxi companies and book before you arrive from companies like BPMN Executive Transport Services in Yeoville, Randburg Cabs on 355 Long Ave, and Zonke Tours and Shuttles on Adrienne Ave.
Johannesburg doesn't clamber for attention like some of South Africa's other cities like Cape Town or Durban. While it's not as visually appealing as elsewhere in the country, the fascinating mix of cultures and styles have produced a city full of hidden treasures.
It might sound dangerous to visit the world's biggest township or slum, but Soweto has really opened up for tourism and its dangerous reputation is unfounded. Full of colour and bursting with life, a trip to Soweto is a journey into the heart and soul of South Africa. Industrial towers are covered in graffiti, buildings are painted every colour of the rainbow, and on every corner you'll find a group of locals shouting hello.
Welekazi Street is the only street in the world where two Noble Prize winners live. Desmund Tutu still lives here but Nelson Mandela's old house is now a museum. Remembering the student uprising against apartheid the Hector Pieterson Museum is a poignant journey through Soweto's history.
Before humans there were hominins. And way before the world charged to Johannesburg during the gold rush, these hominins were living in this area. These are ancestors of the human race and the Cradle of Humankind has 40% of the world's discovered hominin fossils, including some dating back 3.5million years. Fascinating and remarkable, a journey through these caves is one of the world's longest history lessons. Those who don't like fossils can visit the nearby Lion and Rhino Nature Reserve, or head to the Carnivor restaurant where zebra steaks are served on massai swords.
Johannesburg's most affluent suburb is one of the most prestigious in Africa. Full of high end shopping, fine dining, and rich South Africans hanging out, this is an entirely different experience to Soweto. Initially Sandton was cited as an example of the white flight from Johannesburg's city centre, but the area is equally popular with a growing black middle class. Most of the city's top hotels are based here. Sandton is also the birthplace of Prince Leka of Albania. When he was born the South African government officially declared the local maternity ward Albanian territory to ensure Leka could stake his claim to the Albanian thrown.
You've come to Africa you want to see wild animals right? Barely 30 minutes from Johannesburg there are a whole host of nature reserves teeming with all the creatures that make humans very scared. The lions, rhinos, and elephants, are all known about and kept away from the streets. However, wild leopards still live in the surrounding hills.
Johannesburg is a great base to start a trip across the rest of South Africa. From here it's a 2-3 journey east to the spectacular Drakensberg Mountains, and then only a further 1-2 hours before you reach the coastal city of Durban. From there you can follow the N2 around the whole coast line of South Africa. Other people crave safari and head North West from Johannesburg to the famous Kruger National Park, Africa's largest wild animal reserve.
Are you noticing a trend? Johannesburg is in the centre of the different attractions, and from here you can also head South to the Garden Route and Cape Town. Or north to the fascinating nation of Zimbabwe, which once had $100,000,000,000,000 banknotes or North West to Namibia and Botswana. With the continent's largest airport, Johannesburg is the entry point from which the whole of Africa awaits.
