About Johannesburg

Johannesburg or Jozi, as some locals like to call it, is the economic heartbeat of South Africa. What started out as a small mining town, has grown into the wealthiest city on the African continent. It’s also the largest man-made forrest in the world and certainly boasts an interesting and diverse heritage. With the bustle of a metropolis and a somewhat severe city skyline, travellers often use it as a basecamp for safari holidays. But there is so much to discover if you are willing to delve a little deeper.


Best time to visit

Johannesburg doesn’t really have a peak season. The weather is mild all year round, with summer showers and cooler, dry winters. So, when you visit depends on why you’re travelling there. The best time for wild game viewing is winter to spring (May to October). Summer is from November to February, which is when holidaymakers flock to the South African coastline.


Transport from airport to city:

When you arrive at OR Tambo International Airport there are shuttle buses, car rental agencies and taxis available to take you where you need to go. There is also a rapid rail network called The Gautrain, which takes about 25 minutes to get to Sandton (financial and business district), from where you can catch another train to your destination.
