Our house is in Sundowner, Johannesburg. This is a friendly and fairly upmarket suburb, very well-established and with lots of trees. It is safe; the area is boomed off from the general roads, with a security company manning the booms at tentrances to the suburb. The area is quiet, with fairly large properties. Our house is in walking distance (approx. 1km) from Northgate Mall shops. We are also quite close to the Cradle of Humankind - a major attraction of South Africa. We are close to highways. You can have the best of both worlds: city life, but on the peaceful outskirts rather than in the city centre.
Public transport is one of South Africa's biggest weaknesses. We can help you to connect with Uber drivers, or show you how to find your way around if you have hired a car. You can make use of Gautrain or Rea Vaya busses on very limited routes. If we are available, we will be happy to give you a short lift in our private cars (e.g. within a 10 km radius of our home) for a small fee to cover petrol per km. We do NOT recommend that you use the local minibus taxis , although they cover all routes. This is an unregulated industry and their accident rate is very high - it is dangerous (maybe good for adrenalin junkies only!) There are also public buses but they are a bit unreliable and unsafe. The best option, if you have a driver's licence and intend to stay for more than a couple of days, is to hire your own car. We can help you do this and there is parking space in our driveway at home.
