Types of Transportation to and from Pretoria

Coach rentals in Pretoria:

Renting a coach in Pretoria is great for two purposes. Firstly, for day tours or trips around Pretoria and Gauteng, a coach is one of the most cost effective transport options. Secondly, as Pretoria lies at the crossroads of Southern Africa it's the perfect starting point for a journey across Southern Africa.

Coach and bus rentals for tourists:

Around 10 different coach hire companies work from Pretoria and they predominately focus on the business market. As the conference and business capital of the country these companies have enough work to survive. They're also used to providing services to tourists. These companies have an excellent fleet of vehicles. Some people expect African coaches to be rundown and worn out, perhaps mistaking Pretoria for something they saw on TV about the Congo. Facilities are excellent and a range of 22 to 70 seater luxury coaches are available.

Rental prices for buses and coaches in Pretoria:

As a general guide prices will start at €500-600 for a mid-sized coach for full day hire. On our website you can compare quotes and companies from the likes of Rilanco Coaches on 42 Venturi Crescent, Bus Rentals on Emma Street, and Choice Tours at 5 Abrazo. Johannesburg and Pretoria have expanded to the extent that the two cities merge into each other so you can also look at our coach rentals Johannesburg page.

Minibus rentals in Pretoria:

16 seater minibuses are the most common vehicle on Pretoria's roads. These are the local African Taxis and many of them fulfil all images of a bus journey from hell TV program. However, there are also some modern minibuses and a whole range of individuals and companies offer private hire 16 seater minibuses. We recommend using a dedicated coach company as you're assured of the quality, and a back up minibus being available if one breaks down.

Airport Transportation to and from Pretoria:

Pretoria doesn't have its own airport but the two Johannesburg airports are within 60 kms.

Transfer between OR Tambo and Pretoria:

O.R Tambo (JBG) is the largest airport in Africa and the main entry point for foreign visitors to South Africa.  Check out the food stall for a real sense of how diverse South Africa can be. You can go from Bunny Chow (traditional Durban curry and bread), to pap and mass (Zulu and Xhosa speciality), rare steak, and the de facto daily meal for most locals; fried chicken.

From this airport a private transfer to Pretoria will cost up to R1000 (€80) and take 1-2 hours depending on traffic. A 16 seater minibus is normally only a little more expensive so it can be great value for a group. On the journey it's sometimes best to close your eyes as the traffic has a terrible reputation for inducing fear.

Transport between Lanseria Airport and Pretoria:

Lanseria Airport (HLA) is tiny in comparison to O.R Tambo. A transfer takes less than 1 hour and will cost around R500 (€40). Lanseria is situated in the middle of vast wilderness and for this airport transfer you should definitely keep your eyes open. Wild animals roam in the surrounding area, and the winding rural journey to Pretoria is a delight.

Taxis in Pretoria:

Taxis in Pretoria:For both airports you can compare quotes for airport transfers on our website for companies like Pretoria Shuttle on Farm Rd, Speedy Ride Shuttle Services on 1115 Burnett St, and DeKar Chauffeur Services on 527 Charles Street. Expect clean modern vehicles and professional drivers.

South Africans have different definitions for the word taxi. For most people it's not a private hire vehicle but the cheapest available form of public transport. So when you see the taxi rank sign it's for an overcrowded minibus that will stop every 50 metres and smell of local sweat. Take them for an experience but not as a convenient mode of transport.

Private hire taxis are operated by chauffeur companies who are used to working with business and tourist clients. These pre booked taxis are comfortable and spacious, and are usually hired for half day, full day, or multi day hire. Expect rates that start at around R1000 – 1500 (€80 – 120) for a half day going around Guateng province. You can compare services on our website for companies like Rixi Taxis, Stop go taxi on 458 Manitoba Dr, and Exclusive Travellers on Zambezi Ave.

In Pretoria you'll also find taxis that can be hailed on the street. The quality of these varies wildly, and range from tiny old hatchbacks to new 8 seater minivans. Distinguished by a TAXI sign these run on a metre, although bizarrely, the metre is the same regardless of the quality of the vehicle.

What to see and do in Pretoria

Pretoria is the administrative capital of South Africa and the main business hub of the country. Its wide streets and huge forest of Jacaranda trees make it a gentle green city that's pleasing on the eye. Pretoria almost merges into Johannesburg and while it doesn't have a load of stand out attractions, it's a more relaxed place to stay than Johannesburg. Pretoria is a modern capital city but is engulfed by greenery. Walking around the central business district is pleasant and there are enough attractions to keep you occupied. Surrounding the city is a raw and rugged landscape where you can live out all your safari dreams.

Union Buildings:

Home of the South African presidency, the elegant Union Buildings are peacefully situated in a garden of greenery. President Zuma resides here and is famous for his no nonsense approach to debates. If someone disagrees with his policies, his regular response is to call them stupid or idiots that know nothing about South Africa. It borders on bullying but locals usually recall some of Zuma's own idiotic moments, like when he claimed you can't give a woman HIV if you shower after sex or when his anti HIV campaign involved stapling condoms to flyers.

Voortrekker Monument and Freedom Park:

The big cubed building that stands above the South West of the city is Voortrekker Monument and Fort Scanskop. These Afrikaan named monuments are the city's best preserved old architecture and afford stunning views over Pretoria. Picnic in the serenity of Freedom Park and admire the forest that surrounds this verdant city.


All around Pretoria is a landscape that teems with wild animals. It's easy to do a half day safari and get up close and personal with the continent's most famous creatures, including the big 5 of lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and wildebeest. But don't get too close. A group of Chinese tourists had their car flipped by an elephant when they annoyed him by taking too many photos with the flash. Some like Hartebeestport Nature Reserve take encounters to a new level by offering lion and elephant walks. These trained animals will walk alongside you, under careful supervision from the handlers.

Get into Nature:

Pretoria's beauty is its surroundings and the nearby hills are ripe for exploration. Visit the 1000 year old fig tree in the Wonderboom Nature Reserve or go searching for strange birds at the Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary. Groenkloof is the second oldest nature reserve in the world and you can walk and mountain bike alongside antelopes and giraffes. Just don't try driving your coach inside; it's 4x4 only and there's a fine for getting stuck in the mud.

A trip across South Africa:

The Gauteng province has the main entry point to South Africa, so for most foreign visitors Pretoria can be an ideal starting point for a longer trip. From here the whole of Southern Africa awaits. There are many different routes to take; either North to Kruger National Park, Zimbabwe or Botswana or east to Mozambique, Swaziland, and the Wild Coast. Southwards bring the Garden Route and Cape Town. With a number of specialist coach hire companies in Pretoria, many people start and end their holiday here.
