Getting around Joburg

Joburg is very spread out with no single city centre but rather a number of different centres and neighbourhoods. Please see my blog on "Where the city centre is .. or isn't"! Fortunately Craighall Park is very centrally located for easy access to the central suburbs and areas of Rosebank, Sandton, Randburg and Joburg Central.


Effective public transport for visitors to Johannesburg is virtually non-existent. But there are various ways around this:
  1. Use our Liz at Lancaster on-site transport with Mr.T.
  2. Load the Uber app while still at home (it’s often funny about taking a “foreign” credit card when in South Africa. Also if at home you will have IT back-up to help you if you need help.
  3. Contact various designated cab drivers whom we have worked with for many years
  4. For the most significant Joburg tourist sites the Red City Bus is an ideal option.
  5. From OR Tambo International Airport the Gautrain is safe fast efficient and means that you will never be caught in a highway traffic jam.

We hope this helps with preparing you for your Jozi visit - this fast-paced city of extremes.
