OR Tambo Gautrain

Jump to last reply

This summer, I will be traveling with a group to Swaziland, and will be spending about 2 days in Johannesburg on my own. I will more than likely stay at one of the hotels near the airport that has a shuttle to and from the airport. If possible, I would like to have some mobility to see some of Johannesburg. I saw that Johannesburg has a commuter train system, and it looks like there is a station at the airport. Is it possible to take my airport shuttle from my hotel to the airport, and then catch the Gautrain there to explore the city more? If so, where around the airport is the Gautrain station?
I'm from a medium-sized city where there is no extensive public transport system, and I don't travel much, and so I'm looking for the easiest way to get around Johannesburg for a novice.
Thanks so much for any help!
