Johannesburg Car Rental Reviews

Johannesburg roads are easy to navigate but always be vigilante. The outskirts near Pretoria have hidden gems such as game sanctuaries and wilderness easy to drive to for day trips with lots of friendly helpful people. Drove from South Africa to Zimbabwe all paperwork to cross over was in order making it an easy passage. beautiful scenery Mussina South Africa to Gwanda Zimbabwe good for the thrill seekers whether hiking or cycling.

I was travelling up to Marloth park in Mpumalanga province. It was about 5 HR drive from the airport. It wouldn't have been easy to get there without a car. A map or GPS is necessary to find your way out of Johannesburg from the airport as the signs don't give much information. Better signage on the return journey but again I needed a map to find a petrol station to refill car as there is none very close to the airport.

Driving in Johannesburg is quite daunting as it seems there are no road rules and you have to have your wits about you. Pedestrians run out in front of cars which is scary. We have lived in South Africa and found it tricky to navigate the roads. Hiring a car is the only way to get around though, so grit your teeth and good luck!

Rather hectic to get out of the city. If you're not used to driving on the left sidenof the road, managing this plus the busy roads to get out of the city isn't so easy.

Rent a car the first day you arrived Johannesburg is the best option to enjoy this city and to travel around south africa
