Top Tips

  • Driving in Johannesburg is relatively safe. The best way to avoid any problems is to keep your windows up and ensure your doors are locked.
  • As a general rule, it is always advisable to park in a multi-storey or shopping centre car park. Most of these are likely to be barrier-entry and will have security staff on duty.
  • Any valid driver’s licence is accepted in South Africa, providing it displays the photograph and signature of the holder, and is printed or authenticated in English.

Which companies offer best value in Johannesburg?

Knowing which brands offer the best rental experience can be tough, so we show reviews and ratings from previous customers next to each listing — that way, you get honest, impartial advice that will assist your decision when choosing who to rent with. You can also avoid hidden fuel costs by booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (just remember to refill the tank before you drop the car off).

Day trips from Johannesburg

The Apartheid Museum: Located around 8km south-west of the city centre off the M1 freeway, the Apartheid Museum illustrates the rise and fall of South Africa’s era of segregation and oppression. Providing a chilling insight into the apartheid system, the museum is invaluable in explaining the inequalities and tensions that still exist today. Visiting the centre can be an overwhelming yet uplifting experience, and is a must-see for anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding of South Africa’s past.

The Orlando Towers: The Orlando Towers offer the ultimate experience for thrill-seekers. Situated in Soweto, around thirty minutes by car from the centre of Johannesburg, the 33-storey towers of a former power station are used for extreme sports — such as bungee jumping, abseiling and zip line pendulum swinging.

Big Cat Experience: Less than one hour’s drive from Johannesburg, this popular tourist attraction offers visitors the opportunity to witness the largest of all feline predators. With Clouded Leopards, Black Leopards, Jaguars, Panthers, White Tigers and Lions, this is a truly wild experience that you will never forget.
