Catch one of the Johannesburg flights to visit this large bustling South African metropolis. O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) is your introduction to a modern city that is well within reach of outstanding wild animal game reserves.
Transportation from JNB
Once you've disembarked from your flight to Johannesburg at O.R. Tambo International Airport, travel to your chosen accommodation by taxi or shuttle service. Follow the icon signs to the public transport terminus, where you can board one of the accredited vehicles. A number of Johannesburg hotels are located in the area around the airport, and most of them provide shuttle services for the convenience of travelers. If you need to get further afield, take the Gautrain from the airport. This rapid rail system runs to Marlboro and Sandton, where you can take connecting commuter trains. International and local car rental companies are represented at the airport, so it's a simple matter to collect your hire car if this is your preferred mode of transport. Once you're settled, visit the Apartheid Museum for a poignant view of the system of separateness that dogged the country for nearly 50 years. Absorb the artistic culture of sub-Saharan Africa at the Wits Art Museum, and have fun on theme park rides and in true-to-life historical exhibits at Gold Reef City, which celebrates the gold rush of the 1880s. If one of your goals is to view some of the intriguing wild animals of South Africa, take a trip from Johannesburg to Pilanesberg Game Reserve (2.5 hours) or Dinokeng Game Reserve (1.5 hours); both reserves offer luxury lodge accommodation.
