    Hi

    There is a shuttle that runs several times a day from Sun City-Airport-SunCity. However, you arrive fairly late. I suggest that you contact Sun City ( I presume you have accommodation booked?) and ask times of shuttle.
    You could also self-drive, but I DO NOT recommend night driving in South Africa. Its very dangerous- speedsters and animals on the road are death traps.A better option is to spend first night at airport hotel, and leave very early next morning, by shuttle or car. Its a pretty drive, and roads are good.

    I agree with Lynne. Spend the night at a hotel near the airport and then head to Sun City first thing in the morning by bus or rental car. It's an easy drive.

    I just returned from Sun City and had a great time. It is 2-hr by car from Tambo Int'l Airport to Sun City. We hired a driver and things went smoothly. Animals are not the only hazards. Night driving through the wrong areas can be dangerous at the stoplights due to criminals (smash and grab). I can imagine though that if you come in from a very different timezone it would be wasteful to stay at a hotel only to lie in bed and look at the ceiling then be asleep once you finally arrive. I suggest if you can find a shuttle or driver then proceed to the hotel. The casinos run all night. Good luck!

    Regarding ***Animals are not the only hazards. Night driving through the wrong areas can be dangerous at the stoplights due to criminals (smash and grab)***.

    Are you suggesting that having a driver will prevent these from happening?

    Not so. He should stay in hotel overnight, have a sleep and proeceed safely in the morning light.
