Daily Johannesburg and Phalaborwa shuttle


Due to its near-perfect weather, Phalaborwa is affectionately known as ‘The Town of Two Summers’ and is an ideal stopover before embarking on a Big 5 safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park and other game reserves. It also has one of the world’s largest copper mines, making for an impressive day trip.

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

By developing all of their excursions and packages with both domestic and foreign tourists in mind, the company has made it much easier to travel to these more isolated locations of southern Africa.

Alternatively, Safari Link also offers regular shuttle services between Johannesburg and Pilanesberg.

Connecting Johannesburg with Phalaborwa

Safari Link Southern Africa’s daily shuttle service between Phalaborwa in Limpopo and Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport is well-known for its dependability and safety.

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

The pick-up and drop-off locations in Phalaborwa were carefully chosen due to their accessibility to all of the game lodges and safari activities found in the adjacent Greater Kruger area’s private game reserves.

The shuttle departs from Johannesburg’s O.R Tambo International Airport at 7:00 a.m.

The transfer takes about 6 to 8 hours, with several convenience stops along the way so passengers can use the lavatory and buy snacks before continuing on their journey.

Your arrival destination can be any of the following convenient locations:

  • Kamogelo Tourism Centre in Hoedspruit around 13:00
  • Three Bridges Restaurant
  • Balule Olifants West Gate
  • Phalaborwa
