      Arriving on 28 May at 7 10 am on an International flight (from Europe) and then leaving on 29th May to Asia. Would appreciate any help regarding such a short stay in JNB. Of course one hears about the crime etc in RSA. Stay near the airport? take the Gauteng Train to Sandton? or fly off to CPT where I have friends? Muito Obrigado.

      Hi, we will be visiting JNB in late January or early February 2015 for about five days. We are looking at hotels in the Sandton area - is this a good/ best ? area to stay in ? We expect to do some sightseeing and want to know what are the best things to see for first time visitors as well. Also what is the best/ reasonable price transportation from JNB to the Sandton hotel area ? Willing to take train or taxi. Thanks. Judy (from New York).

Do you think 2 hrs is enough for Apartheid Museum or recommend another short morning tour? Any hotel recommendations - I prefer to avoid the large, American-style chain hotels when possible.

      2. Does minibus taxi run to Mafikeng? How early should I be there? 4am? 7am? Or even 12 noon?

    • Timings and cost of Underground Mining Tour and Gold Pour

      Johannesburg Oct 5, 2013 at 12:38 PM


      I am visiting Gold Reef City on 29th Dec (Sunday) and want to experience the Underground Mining Tour and Gold Pour. So, is there any particular time for the mining tour and Gold Pour? If yes, then what are they? I also want to know the duration of the tour.

      As its a Sunday, should I buy tickets online or are they easily available at the counter? When checked for online tickets, it gives the date and the time as 9.30am but I am planning to visit at 12.30pm. So will the tickets be valid in that case? Can the mining tour tickets also booked online?

      As I am spending only one day in Johannesburg, I dont want to mess up travelling without proper information. Any help and advice would be highly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.
