I have some queries concerning the shuttle bus service which runs every 15+ minutes interval between JNB airport and the Southernsun OR Tambo hotel.
My initial plan was to do a safari in Eastern cape but we have now changed our plan and heading to KNP instead. For this we need to do a 1 night stop over at Johannesburg and we have decided to go ahead and book with SouthernSun OR Tambo hotel ( which is 500 m from the airport). My flight arrives late night (after 9 PM) and I am travelling with small children.
Here is the list of queries which I have -
1. Do they have proper signs to the pickup point / waiting area
I have read some posts saying that the signage for the shuttle to the airport Sun wasnt well marked so it becomes hard to locate the pickup
2. Do we need to pay or its a Free shuttle service to/from the airport to the hotel
3. Safety while waiting for the next shuttle service ?
How safe is the waiting area / pickup point ? I understand that we may have to wait over 15 odd mins to catch the next available shuttle to
Will it be safe to wait there on our own at 10 PM+ or should we consider taking a cab from the airport to the hotel.
If so, which cab would you recommend i.e Rikkis, Metered cabs etc
Any advice/feedback would be much appreciated.
