City Lodge at OR Tambo Airport

Local Area

Johannesburg is South Africa’s largest city and the capital of the country’s wealthiest province, Gauteng. Getting in and out from OR Tambo International Airport takes around 30mins by car. You can also take the Metro into the city centre or to Sandton station, just outside.

Once you’ve arrived in Joburg there are one hundred and one things to do. This is the country’s cultural heartland with the Apartheid Museum, the Hector Peterson Museum, and the Johannesburg Art Gallery, all showcasing South Africa - warts and all.

Although not necessarily a typical tourist destination, Joburg’s worth visiting before or after jetting off to the bright lights of Cape Town or the wildlife reserves of Kruger National Park. It’s a chance to learn about South Africa’s troubled past with organised trips into the townships of Soweto and Alexandra becoming increasingly popular.

Of course, for many travellers, Johannesburg is also a gateway city. Somewhere to stay at a convenient airport hotel before heading off on an early morning flight.
