Lanseria Airport Shuttle
Lanseria Airport is the only accredited international airport other than Johannesburg airport in Gauteng. Since its recent revamp, which came with some of the best safety and emergency response ratings in Africa as well as recommendations based on its sleek style and services, Lanseria Airport has become something of a destination of choice for private jet-setters in particular.
Lanseria Airport features a three-deck parkade, dedicated drop-and-go facility, and its own Lanseria Airport shuttle. There is no shortage of things to see and do in Lanseria and surrounds, and hailing a Lanseria shuttle, taxi or private car hire service won’t pose any problems.
Lanseria is close to:
- Sandton, the richest square mile in Africa
- Pretoria, an administrative capital rich in historical sites
- The West Rand, a bubbling new hub of commercial enterprise, and
- The North-West province.
Taxi, cab and Lanseria shuttle transfers
The only authorised – but by no means only reliable or ‘allowed’ Lanseria Airport shuttle and taxi service at the airport is Lanseria International Airport Taxi Association (LATS). A wide range of standard or bespoke point-to-point transfers are available through them. Choose your vehicle, number of passengers, and standard of luxury, such as whether you’d like to be chauffeur-driven or not.
When deciding on a Lanseria shuttle, Lanseria International Airport shuttle service is one of your options. It connects you to and from the Sandton Gautrain, the rapid-rail service for OR Tambo passengers. It is a convenient method of transfer to Sandton and Johannesburg as schedules are synchronised with flights. Remember though that this service does not offer a tailored route, and won’t be your best option if you’re travelling with lots of baggage.
There are also generally many Uber-style Lanseria Airport shuttle services available. You can pre-book your route and ride and pay per kilometre. Be sure not to wait for your ride at the airport building exit to avoid congestion.
There are also private companies such as Rhino Shuttles who are dedicated to providing the airport with a tourism-style Lanseria shuttle. Cars are clearly marked and the pick-up point is to the left of the airport building exit. A company such as this one is geared towards tailoring your pickup around the best local sites surrounding Lanseria, of which there are many!
Taking a Lanseria Airport Shuttle to Sun City
Because of Lanseria’s proximity to the world-renowned Sun City, many international and local travelers alike are opting to access the destination of a million thrills via Lanseria Airport. A number of dedicated Lanseria shuttle service providers will have you dropped off at the complex in just a few minutes, any time of night or day.
Taking a Lanseria Airport shuttle to Sun City is well worth it, considering that the venue is home to the widest selection of world class adventure you could hope to find just about anywhere. Whether you fancy going on a safari, want a day at a sea-like lagoon or prefer the thrill of a theme park, the destination of a million thrills does not disappoint. The only limiting factor is your sense of fun and how far you’ll let it fly!
Rhino and nature Lion Nature Reserve
This is another nearby-to-Lanseria must-see stop. Booking your Lanseria Airport shuttle to the reserve billed as ‘the nearest far away place’ is more than well worth it for the memories you’ll create alone.
Experience the king of the jungle in the form of lion troops in all their majesty. The park also has loads of other wildlife on offer including crocodiles, snakes and other reptiles. The reserve is situated in Krugersdorp and getting there with your Lanseria shuttle will hardly take you fifteen minutes! From the airport, simply cross the three-way stop and drive for two kilometers. At the Kromdraai sign on the left, turn left and drive for seventeen kilometers. The reserve is also indicated along with the Kromdraai sign. At the end of this stretch, you’ll find the entrance on the right-hand side.
Of all the reasons to book your Lanseria Airport shuttle to the reserve though, the most spectacular one has to be to catch a glimpse of the now endangered white rhino. There are only approximately 20 000 white rhino and 4 800 black rhino surviving in the wild. The white rhino is considered a vulnerable species, even though the black rhino has been hunted more for its horns in recent years. The white rhino is second only in size to the elephant.
Another standout sight near to Lanseria airport is the Sterkfontein caves. Whether you direct your shuttle via the N14 or R374, it is a straight, thirty minute drive. You could reasonably expect to pay R300 to R420 for a taxi or cab drive from the airport to the caves.
These world-famous caves are known for their fossil finds, which have significantly shaped our understanding of early humankind. It is a World Heritage Site owned by the University of the Witwatersrand, whose scientists excavate at the site.
The tours are well narrated and filled with the richness of all the rare discoveries of the past. While the tours commence above ground, they then run deep into the heart of the caves. ‘Mrs Ples’ is one of the famous three-million year-old skulls found at the caves, along with ‘Little Foot’.
There’s no excuse to miss this life-changing excursion – tours run every half an hour, seven days a week. The fee is R120 for adults, R65 for children and kids under four are exempt from any fee charge.
