Shuttle service between Pretoria and O.R. Tambo Int. Airport?

by wimneel

Can anybody tell me if there is a coach shuttle service between Pretoria and the International Airport?

Re: Shuttle service between Pretoria and O.R. Tambo Int. Airport?

by JohanIsWeg

Yes, there is.
Have a look at:
http://www.airportshuttle.co.za/
http://www.ezshuttle.co.za/

Not sure whether you're talking about arrival or departure...
If you're arriving, I would not use public transport in any form - that includes trains, buses, taxis.

That leaves you the option of renting a car - Pretoria is easy to get to from Joburg International.
You also have the option of contacting your accommodation and asking them to arrange a shuttle. For example, the Backpackers Lodge Pretoria offers a shuttle at R100pp during office hours or R200 after hours.
Another option is to arrange with friends, colleagues, associates or even VT'ers to meet you at the airport (a small fee may or may not be negotiated).

by Gerald_D

Johan, you will have to explain why the difference between arrival and departure.

Re: Shuttle service between Pretoria and O.R. Tambo Int. Airport?

by PierreZA

There are quite a few services. I previously made use of Meet Africa Airport Transfers (www.meetafricatransfers.co.za).
You can book online.
As Johan said, the safest option to use would be a shuttle service, especially if traveling from ORTIA to PTA.
Happy travels
Pierre

Gerald, because I thought he/she probably would not want to rent a car to the airport if he/she was leaving the country - and that was one of the options I mentioned ;)

Re: Shuttle service between Pretoria and O.R. Tambo Int. Airport?

by wimneel

Hi JohanIsWeg and PierreZA. Thank you very much for your answers. I will be arriving at Pretoria Station at around 5 in the morning and have to be at the airport before 10. Time is not the problem, as you can see.
On the website "To & From the Airport" (www.toandfromtheairport.com) a scheduled bus service called "Pretoria Airport Shuttle" is mentioned; they even give the times the bus is leaving and a telepone number as well. When I phoned to Tshwane Tourism Information Centre, they gave me the same name and phone number. However, the number doesn't work! It seems to always be busy. Do you know if this service still exists?

I have used Exclusive Travellers, a company that does airport transfers. They meet you at your arrivals gate at any time, I have also used them to go to Sun City. The service was excellent and much better than I've experienced with rental companies.

Yes, i am based in Centurion and i do transfers from/to OR tambo to Pretoria. Please send me an email to shuttleservices@gmail.com for contact

Travel Tips for Pretoria

Tour Guide & Driver

by almostacowboy

The Farm Inn just outside of Pretoria is the largest structure "under thatch" in SA or possibly the world. A great place to stay with wonderful breakfasts and accomodations. Hearing the on-site lions and hyenas at night was exhilerating.. We used "Friends of Mine" tour operators in Pretoria. Hennie Van der Berg (owner) was absolutely wonderful! He created a custom tour for us which my wife and I will never forget. Not only did we see the "tourist traps" but he took us to wonderful little restaurants, B&B's, shopping, and sight-seeing off the beaten track. He even cooked us a typical South African braai - 3 meat courses!
You absolutely must use him! Now Hennie is a "friend of ours"!
Thanks, Hennie.

Wildlife

by Deefstes

Around Pretoria and Johannesburg there are many wildlife reserves so you needn't drive very far to find wild animals.

Ezemvelo Nature Reserve, Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, Borakolalo, Ditholo, Buffelsdrift, Dinokeng and Krugersdorp Game Farm are but a few.

Prawns : Mozambique Style

by PierreZA about 40 Knotts

A nice and different restaurant. The speciality is seafood, and in Mozambique style. A very nice atmosphere with live music some evenings.
Worth a visit, especially if you like seafood.
They also have other Portugese starters.
THIS RESTAURANT RECENTLY CLOSED DOWN! PRAWNS

by Yolandam

'For many South Africans the Union Buildings are the most beautiful seat of a government in the world. Sir Herbert Baker was the architect of this 275 m long building and had it built in the English monumental style from light sandstone. It does indeed look majestic and lends a solemn environment to the official acts of the respective President. The Union Building has a half-round shape. The two wings at the sides represent the Boerish and the English part of the population.

The building's name comes from the time of the South African Union, which was only changed in 1961 to the current name, the Republic of South Africa.

Since the first free and common elections in South Africa in 1994 the Union Building has been the seat of Ex-President Nelson Mandela for the winter season. Parliament spends the summer in Cape Town, the alternate capital.'
The gardens of the Union Buildings are some of the most spectacular in the country. There are many statues of political figures from the history of South Africa. The best known is one of Gen. Jan Smuths, a founding father of the nation and the UN.
