Peak season:

Johannesburg enjoys warm summers that span from November through February, but depending on what kind of itinerary you have planned, the best time of the year for you to visit Johannesburg could vary. Summer is Johannesburg’s peak tourist season, which means that flights booked for this time of the year will often be most expensive.

 

Off season:

You may find that booking flights to Johannesburg can often be done most cheaply when it’s booked outside of the peak summer season. Do make sure that there are no major festivals taking place during your predetermined time of travel, as this may very well rev up the flight and accommodation prices in Johannesburg, even during the quieter, off-season months, which run from March through October.

While booking a flight with a carrier such as Mango or Kulula.com might see you paying the most affordable rates possible, keep in mind that airlines such as South African Airways and British Airways do offer more onboard comfort and added extras such as snacks and drinks en-route to Johannesburg.

 

How to get from the airport to the city center?

 

Getting from the OR Tambo International Airport can be done in a few ways. You can take the Reya Vaya bus parked outside of the arrival terminals, which is a safe and cost-effective way of commuting between the airport and the city center, but you can also take a ride with a pre-ordered Uber cab. Another way of getting to the city center is by making use of the Gautrain, which will take you all the way to Sandton City, from where you can then take a taxi to get to exactly where you need to be. Alternatively, you can also enquire with the hotel you’re staying with to find out whether they offer a complimentary shuttle service from the airport to the hotel.
