Johannesburg Airport Car Rental | Rent a car Johannesburg

The financial and industrial metropolis of South Africa. There are enough sites you can visit here like the Soweto &the Mandela Museum, the Apartheid Museum, Gold Reef City or the South African National Museum of Military History.
Some sites are close to the city center but for some you need to travel a bit. A smart way of doing this is by renting a cheap car.

Johannesburg Airport Car RentalJohannesburg, a sprawling metropolis in the interior of South Africa, is also the country’s largest city after Cape Town. With a mesmerizing skyline and an equally glorious history to boast of, Johannesburg is one city where the white and black people live in peace. Full of splendid mines, huge towers and monuments, art galleries and national parks, Johannesburg is definitely a travellers’ delight. With our car rental services you can easily travel through the city and visit the important sightseeing places.

It is for a particular reason that Johannesburg is called the ‘Gold City’; indeed, the Krondaai Gold Mine is the best and the most sophisticated of gold mines and was built in the early 16th century. A visit down into the bowels of the earth can be an edifying experience. Learn all about gold, its carat descriptions and the processing methods at a guided tour. Moreover, the beautiful surroundings of the area make for an excellent one-day trip.

Built overlooking the city of Johannesburg, the Constitutional Court is a glowing tribute to the freedom fighters who laid their lives on the line fighting for equality and justice. What served once as a prison during the 18th century has now become a national symbol of freedom. The monument offers spectacular sights and views of the marvellous skyline of the city. With our car hire services, you can travel for miles and visit this and other places of importance.

Housing Flemish, Dutch and other medieval European art masterpieces, the Johannesburg Art Gallery actually belongs to a wealthy connoisseur of art, who sold her diamonds and procured some of the vibrant paintings displayed here. Today, converted into a national heritage site, her mansion with its charming promenades is an important place to visit in the city. There are several other museums in Johannesburg that you can explore with the help of car rental. 

Situated away from the city, the Lion Park, unlike any other sanctuary in the state, lets you pet the lion cubs at the entrance and feed the giraffes (inclusive with the entry fee). There is a lion safari where you come in contact with the most dangerous and intimidating of all beasts. There is also a game reserve at the other end filled with deer, fox and other desert animals.

Make the most of every moment and let Johannesburg car rental services ensure that you see as much as you want to during your time in one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
