Flying into OR Tambo International Airport

Your flight into Johannesburg will land at OR Tambo International Airport, formerly known as Johannesburg International Airport. The airport is located about 13 miles northeast of the city centre. OR Tambo is South Africa's largest and busiest airport, easily shuttling upwards of 28 million passengers every year. It also serves as the hub of the country's signature airline, South African Airways.

Transportation Into Johannesburg

There are several ways to get from the airport into town. If you wish to take a taxi, only take airport-approved taxis. They are recognizable by the ACSA logo on their cars. Each terminal at the airport has an airport-approved taxi desk, so check with them if you have an issue. A taxi will cost you anywhere from 370 to 460 ZAR and will take about half an hour to get to the city centre. You can also take one of the many shuttle buses offering service between the airport and town. One of the most famous is the Magic Bus Shuttle, which runs every two hours between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The fare is 350 ZAR per person, or $41.

Johannesburg's Climate

Johannesburg has a subtropical highland climate. Summertime in South Africa runs from about mid-October until March. Temperatures usually range anywhere from 25°C to 30°C, and the days can be quite humid. This is also considered the rainy season, meaning that you can have days with short, passing showers or heavy downpours that last for days at a time. Winters tend to be dry and mild, with sunny days and chilly nights, and temperatures range from 4°C to 17°C. This is also considered the region's dry season, so there will be very little rain. Johannesburg is a bustling cosmopolitan city, so anytime is a good time to go.

Things to Do in Johannesburg

Johannesburg is a modern city that has a wealth of activities for visitors to enjoy. No trip to Johannesburg is complete without a visit to the Apartheid Museum. The complex is comprised of a series of exhibits and memorabilia dedicated to teaching people about the history of the apartheid era. You could also visit the South Western Townships, more commonly referred to as Soweto. Many people expect to find poverty and despair, but instead find a fiercely proud, thriving community of locals. Be sure to check out Nelson Mandela's former home in Orlando West. When you really just want to kick back, take a trip to the SAB World of Beer. SAB is South Africa's premier beer maker, and you'll be able to take a tour through the facility to learn about the history and production of South African beer.
