Car Hire

It is important to consider hiring a car when in South Africa as public transport is virtually non-existent.


 Modes of Transport

    There are several transport options for getting from Oliver Tambo International Airport (Johannesburg) to umSisi House:
  • You can hire a car in Johannesburg and enjoy a 4 hour or so journey to umSisi House. This is a very easy and picturesque drive bypassing Johannesburg altogether, or
  • You can take a short flight to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) from Johannesburg and either hire a car on arrival, as we are only 15 minutes drive away, or we will arrange your transfer to umSisi, or
  • You can take an air-conditioned minibus from airport to airport and hire a car at the airport or we will arrange your transfer to umSisi.

Please have a supply of South African rand with you to pay for road tolls on the N4 and fuel as some petrol stations do not accept credit cards. Tolls will cost approximately R120 for each leg of the journey.
