Airport Car Rental
Get your rental cat at Johannesburg Tambo Airport! Then drive to the city center. The Market Theatre area has plenty of bars, restaurants, and concert venues, and so does Braamfontein, the students’ neighborhood. Make sure to visit the impressive South African Museum of Rock Art.
Johannesburg is a great city to explore because it’s a bit like seeing all of Africa in one place. There are Somali, Ethiopian, Congolese, Cameroonian, and many other areas, each with its unique culture and atmosphere. Make sure you visit the West Side too—it was once Johannesburg’s Indian quarter and still has a lot of excellent Indian and Pakistani restaurants. With a rental car, you can venture outside the city to the Lesedi Cultural Village—a dance center for Zulu, Xhosa, Ndebele, and other local cultures—, drive to the now abandoned Ferreira’s gold mine, or visit a nature reserve to see lions and other wildlife.
Johannesburg’s a great destination, but the surrounding area has so much more to offer. With a longer term car rental you can explore the east and the west of South Africa, go to the tiny, but fascinating, Lesotho or Swaziland, or even drive all the way to neighboring Mozambique, Zimbabwe, or Botswana. Picking up your rental car at Johannesburg Tambo Airport and dropping it off in a different city is possible. Start planning your adventure today!
Johannesburg Airport is also known as O.R. Tambo International Airport.
