Getting around

Johannesburg really is a sprawling city scape of roads and routes. Although public transport has improved with the introduction of the world class Gautrain rail network, this facility is still limited to where it can get to, so even more so than the other two major urban areas of the country a car is absolutely essential when wishing to navigate the city. 

Length of stay

Johannesburg is doable in a week but if one wishes to really immerse themselves in the culture whilst experiencing neighboring towns, nature and wildlife, roughly two weeks would be a more sufficient time frame. If you feel you need more time please check the visa requirements of your country of origin before departure and to see how much time they give you and what are requirements for extending your visa. Car hire Johannesburg Airport will give you the freedom to venture further which might prompt you to extend your stay.

What to pack

Its best to prepare for all weather conditions, the summer months are generally hot and dry and the winter months can become bitterly cold. Summer has the occasional thunderstorm so pack some waterproof clothing and a jacket or two.
