Daily Johannesburg & Mashishing / Lydenburg Shuttle


Except for farming, trout fishing, and mining now being among the most well-known industries of Mashishing (previously Lydenburg), the well-known Panorama Route starts almost immediately after leaving Lydenburg, close to where the Long Tom Pass starts, making the town a popular place to visit.

The town is also rich in history as Lydenburg, as it was originally known, was already established in the year 1850 by Andries Potgieter, a prominent Voortrekker leader. It even served as the capital of the South African Republic (Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek) for a brief period of time.

Safari Link provides a regular shuttle service between Johannesburg and Lydenburg.

The Lydenburg Museum is on the bucket list of many people interested in history, as the Lydenburg Heads, sculptures made of hollow clay that are around 500 years old, are on show at the museum. It is believed that the statues were used in religious ceremonies by the people who invaded the area long, long ago.

We also offer shuttle services between Johannesburg and Dullstroom.

Connecting Johannesburg with Mashishing / Lydenburg

Safari Link Southern Africa offers a daily shuttle service that connects Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport and Mashishing/Lydenburg in Mpumalanga on route to Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa.

You will travel through some of South Africa’s most breath-taking scenery as you pass across the country’s Highveld and Lowveld districts.

The shuttle departs from Johannesburg’s O.R Tambo International Airport at 07:00 and travel via Emalahleni (previously Witbank) “the place of coal”, eMakhazeni (previously Belfast) which means “The Cold Place” and Emnothweni (previously Dullstroom), to Mashishing / Lydenburg.

Visitors will note that while these are the official new names, the original names are still commonly used in everyday conversation and you might find both names being used interchangeably.

The transfer takes about 4 to 6 hours, with convenience stops along the way so passengers can use a restroom and buy snacks before continuing on their journey.
