Travelling to Sun City

Sun City is approximately a 3 hour drive from Johannesburg’s O R Tambo International Airport via either road transfer or self-drive/car hire.

The road to Sun City is the main arterial road link to the north. You have the option of renting a car, arranging your own single or group charter transfer with a driver, or joining another group of Fusion attendees travelling to Sun City and back to OR Tambo International Airport at set times on different days of the week. For first-time visitors we recommend a charter transfer as it is the most convenient option.

 

1.  Self-drive (Car Hire)

Should you prefer to self-drive there are many car hire companies to choose from that operate from OR Tambo International Airport.

Please note: We do not recommend travelling to Sun City during night-time. The roads are not lit all the way from OR Tambo International Airport to Sun City. You will travel through several villages, where livestock are not always fenced in and people cross the roads at unlit intersections.  We do not recommend travelling to Sun City from Or Tambo International Airport after 15:00. (The sun sets at approximately 18:00)
