Car hire in Johannesburg and beyond

Situated in the South African province of Gauteng, Johannesburg is the biggest city in South Africa and has the largest growing economy of any metropolis south of the Sahara.

Johannesburg is in fact one of the 50 largest cities in the world. Located entirely inland without benefit of a shoreline, lake or river, Johannesburg residents claim it is the world number one for lightning strikes (although this has never been verified).

Even though Johannesburg does not enjoy the status of being a capital city, it is the seat of South Africa’s Constitutional Court, as well as being famous for diamond and gold excavations on an immense scale.

The richness in natural minerals of the nearby Witwatersrand Hills continues to provide the region with precious stones and gems to this day. Johannesburg has all kinds of attractions from wild life game reserves, zoos and lion parks to hiking trails and picnic areas; the warm climate ensures most activities are carried out in the open air throughout most of the year.

The city also has a wide range of museums, the most famous of which being the Apartheid Museum. The most inexpensive way to explore all these attractions is by driving, and booking a car rental with Budget could not be any easier.

If you choose our car hire service during your stay you will immediately see its advantages as many of Johannesburg’s attractions are located outside of the city.

With limited public transport and mini cabs being difficult to find outside of the city itself, an inexpensive car rental is definitely the way to go. Driving in Johannesburg is straightforward enough, as they also drive on the left and the road signs and directions are in English and easily visible.

The city has a new road network too, which has evolved, as the city itself, in a mostly northerly direction. The main motorway is the N1, which connects Johannesburg with Pretoria to the north and Cape Town to the south. The N12 leads to the Kimberley mine area, Witbank and to the Kruger National Park and famous safari land, while the N3 leads towards the south-east coast and to Durban.
