South Africa is a country that is filled with friendly and engaging people.

That being said, entering a foreign country, no matter how well travelled you are, can be daunting – which is why we are on standby to assist you along every step of your journey.

We offer a wonderful chauffeur-driven transfer service that will ensure you collected and dropped off at your destination in Sandton, Rosebank, Melrose or in the greater Johannesburg area safely.

For those who are little more adventurous, you can hop onto the renowned Gautrain at the airport, which will literally drop you off within walking distance of the five-star hotel – although you won’t have to walk because we will be there to collect you and your baggage, should you wish!

If you are looking for an adventure or merely want to explore the city and it’s plethora of delights, we have an excellent concierge who is ready and waiting to offer insight on Gauteng’s attractions.

convenience logoConvenience & reliability

An integrated system means paying for all transport with one Gold Card. All areas respect the needs of passengers with disabilities. Buses currently provide connectivity to suburbs at Sandton, Rosebank, Midrand, Centurion, Pretoria, Hatfield & Rhodesfield Stations as well as car rental facilities at Sandton. Bank on our reliable timetable and never miss a flight – travel from Sandton to O.R. Tambo in only 12 minutes.

link logoAffordability

Gautrain has a balanced approach in its fare policy, aimed at making its services accessible to most. It complements and integrates existing transport modes. Fares are typically lower than that of a private car for the same journey, but more expensive than those of mini-bus taxis, Metrobuses and the Metrorail.

leaf logoEnvironmental Awareness

A dedication to responsible environmental management throughout the system, including the construction phase, as governed by the Environmental Management Plan. Trained personnel ensure that we adhere to this commitment. More than halve your carbon footprint! Rail transport remains the most earth friendly mass transit system.
