South African airport transfers
Did you know?
Cape Town International Airport, which provides South Africa transfers, is Africa's third largest airport.
South African airport transfers are available at international and domestic airports across the country. Airport transfers in South Africa can be pre-booked online, through your tour operator or the hotel at which you're staying.
South Africa transfers from the airport are provided by several local car rental agencies. These companies offer door-to-door airport transfers services and often, chauffeur-driven services.
Try Avis Rent a Car, Hertz or Tempest Car Hire at OR Tambo International Airport, Durban International Airport or Cape Town International Airport for these services.
South African airport transfers also include shuttle services. A popular provider offering airport shuttles to hotels in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town is Magic Bus.
These are scheduled services that run daily. The company also provides a 24-hour, 7 days a week point-to-point airport transfer service, if this is preferred.
The majority of South Africa's tour operators also undertake transfers - check when booking your trip if your tour operator provides this service. If not, there are a multitude of operators to choose from at airports across the country.
This is particularly useful if flying to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA), where transfers to out-of-the-way bush destinations may be necessary.
Private Connections Tours & Safari provides transfers from KMIA to the Kruger National Park and surrounds. Another operator, Citybug Transfer Services, offers airport transfers to destinations across the Lowveld.
Private, luxury airport transfers are also easily booked. Check with your hotel on booking which operators service the establishment. Alternatively, contact SoWhere2 - a company that offers luxury airport transfers to destinations across the country.
There are dozens of top hotels within close proximity to South Africa's airports. In Johannesburg, try the InterContinental Sandton Towers or Michelangelo Hotel in Sandton. In Cape Town, visit The Commodore Hotel or the Mount Nelson Hotel.
In Durban, try the Beverly Hills Hotel in Umhlanga or Hotel Izulu in Ballito. If flying to KMIA, overnight at Emnotweni Sun in Nelspruit or Karula Lodge in White River.
