safety issues in Joberg airport/

by ron.sharon

My wife and I are travelling from the airport to Sandton to overnight before returning to the airport the next day for an onward flight.We had originally planned to take the Gautrain and then a taxi to our b and b both ways.One of my south african patients here in Canada told me for safety sake to take a taxi direct and avoid the train.his reasoning was that as obvious tourists we were targets for muggers.Is this a hysterical over reaction?Is there any semblance of truth in this idea?Sandton looked attracive partly because of the quick and cheaper travel from the airport.What would it cost to take a taxi instead of trhe Gautrain/?Maybe we could taxi out and Gautrain back?Any advice welcome.I need to allay my wifes fears.

I doubt whether your patient has actually been on the Gautrain - I suspect he equates the Gautrain with the general SA train service. Not that I have used it myself, but reports from folk that have actually used it say that it is top class.

Re: safety issues in Joberg airport/

by CatherineReichardt

I am happy to report that your concerns about Gautrain are unfounded. I use it regularly to travel to and from the airport on business, and have had absolutely no problems. Furthermore, I have not heard of a single instance of crime in relation to Gautrain, and believe me, it is such a high profile facility that if there had been, then we'd have heard all about it!
Gautrain costs R100 each way per person, so it's around half the cost of a taxi from the airport. It is also much quicker (15 minutes from OR Tambo to Sandton). See my writeups for more details on the ticketing procedures, operating hours and other related issues under my travel tips on my Jo'burg page.
My suggestion would be that you contact the B&B to see whether they're willing to pick you up from Gautrain - many will, and most won't charge you for it if you're staying close by. If they are going to charge you, then it may make more sense to get a taxi directly from the airport to your B&B - in which case, be sure to arrange a pick up with a reputable taxi ahead of time. If needs be, I can give you the details of an excellent guy we use for business transfers - if you're interested, then e-mail me at my VT address.
My advice would be to try Gautrain, if only one way, as it's the only service of its kind in the whole of Africa, and is a great experience. I can understand your trepidation to try this just after your fall jetlagged off an intercontinental flight, but perhaps consider it for the transfer back to the airport the next day when you're feeling rested and a little more confident?
Have a wonderful trip!

the gautrain started operation last june and so far, no crime incident on it had been reported yet.It had become a novelty for some families and group of friends who use it on weekends for a breakfast or lunch run at the airport food court according to some journalists. However its operating hours is only up to 2030 hrs.

An airport shuttle taxi service will be about 365 rands per vehicle to sandton cbd and vicinity one way.

A car rental for a basic car will be less than 300 rands per day and adding a gps adds 75 rands per day to the rental. Ideally this would be the best and the cheapest, but it would depend on your comfort zone with regards driving in johannesburg.



Re: safety issues in Joberg airport/

Typically the quoted 300 R/day applies if you rent for a lot of days - only renting for one day is lot more. Plus you need to add fuel costs.

Re: safety issues in Joberg airport/

by Gerald_D

Have just checked some online reservations and the quoted prices for one day rentals is indeed under R300! Funny, when I do business trips up there, I always end up paying about R500.....will have to ask my secretary (wife) about this :-)

Travel Tips for Johannesburg

Your private guide for daytrips from Johannesburg

by Airpunk

Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, is a popular place for visitors to South Africa. But this doesn’t come from the attractions in the city – the attractions outside are much more interesting. For wildlife, make a trip to the Pilanesberg national park or the Lion park, for culture, the cradle of humankind or the Lesedi cultural village are interesting places. This means, that you have to take a rental car, take organized tours or go with your private guide.
We did the tours with Annekie and Henry from Catz Tours. They are surely among the most friendly people I’ve ever met and they did the best to show us their country. They have their standard tours, but as it your private tour, they are fexible when it comes to date and time. And of course, they can also show you around in Johannesburg or take you on a tour through Soweto.

Zulu people

by Manyana

Zulu tribe is famous in South Africa, very interesting. Women dress with short skirts, and bare-breast, men wear short pants and children may go naked sometimes.
You can interact with them in their natural settings in Kwa-Zulu Natal province or at cultural villages for tourists.

This is now called 'Brightwater Commons'

by CatherineReichardt

The above tip is several years out of date. The 'Randburg Waterfront' was redeveloped about 4 years ago and rebranded as 'Brightwater Commons'. The complex consists of shops (including Pick'n'Pay and Woolworths), a cinema, a skateboard park, Virgin Active gym and quite a lot of restuarants. It is a pleasant and secure place (with ample parking and lots of space for kids to run around) to spend a few hours if you live in JHB or happen to be in the area, but probably isn't worth a special trip.

Melville, Greenside, Parkhurst

by arzauk

Melville, Greenside, Parkhurst
Melville has the largest concentration of night clus, pubs and restaurants in Johannesburg. There is something for everybody (excluding parking space, that is!)
Greenside and Parkhurst's main avenues have some of the best restaurants in Jo'burg.

Traditional African Food

by Stuwalmsley2003 about MOYO

We had a great meal here. The restaurant serves traditional African meals. There are differnt areas to eat. Outside are some big sofas, inside there are smarter tables and booths all in candlelight. It is a very nice place in the ricer suburb of melrose so security is no problem at all. Venison Bobosie. Venison braised with malay spices and baked with an egg custard, served with crispy popadum, rice and a sambals.
