OR Tambo Airport Accommodation


Johannesburg’s best cure for jetlag


O.R. Tambo International Airport, the largest and busiest airport in Africa, is undoubtedly the world’s gateway to South Africa and your first taste of Johannesburg’s vibrant energy lies just outside its borders. While the airport itself is a hub of activity, there’s plenty of accommodation in its immediate vicinity where weary travellers can rest their heads.

Well over 10 hotels lie just outside O.R. Tambo’s sliding doors – quite a few of which are actually within walking distance. The InterContinental Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport Hotel, for example, is about one minute’s walk from the terminal while the Southern Sun O.R. Tambo is just 500 metres from the airport. The Emperors Palace casino-hotel complex is about three kilometres from the airport and houses the Peermont Metcourt Suites Hotel and D'Oreale Grande Hotel.

Once travellers have beaten back the jetlag, getting around for business or pleasure a cinch. Both Pretoria and the buzzing heart of Johannesburg are only about half-an-hour’s drive away from the airport. The swift and nifty Gautrain, Johannesburg’s rapid-transit rail system, is an equally top-notch transport option and can get you from O.R. Tambo to the city’s affluent Sandton suburb in only 15 minutes.
