In the past that drive would take about 1 hour at the most. But now the roads around Jo-burg are so congested it may take you much longer than that, especially that time of the day. Some even said that it takes them 2-3 hours.

Good luck

hi depends what day - friday could easily be 3 hrs. Or if as I heard this morning a tomato truck lost is load all over the carriageway, 2-3hrs. the drive should take you 30-40 minutes with relatively flowing traffic. Unfortunately that cannot be guaranteed, so cross thumbs. you should be fine though. You will be out of Lanseria within 10-20 mins if that, they are extremel efficient. Assuming you are then on international flight from or tambo therefore need to be there around 6.30 - over 3 hrs should be no issue.

Hi Gassogassy,

Lanseria airport is located in Randburg. Flights landing at Lanseria usually clear sooner than at O R Tambo, meaning you'll be off the plane and luggage in hand within relatively little time. Say for argument's sake you'll be out of the airport and in the car by 16:00. Unfortunately that's peak time traffic and getting to the O R Tambo will be a bit of a nightmare. Realistically I'd say you can expect a 2-hour drive. That means you'll be at the O R Tambo around 18:00, you should be stressed but still in time!

Just another question, are your flights booked already? Any chance that you can change your domestic flight to O R Tambo? Might be slightly more price-wise but it will save you loads of hassle and stress.
