My husband and I will be in Johannesburg five days, then renting a car to drive to Kruger. We will be staying in Roodepoort and would like to visit Newtown, Braamfontein, Soweto and other areas. We were thinking perhaps it would be best to hire taxis for those 5 days, rather than renting a car and having the stress of driving in a foreign country in a busy city while on the opposite side of the road.
Any opinions on this? Are taxis expensive? Is it easy and safe to drive in Johannesburg?
Thanks! Also, if you have any advice on things not to be missed in Johannesburg, I'd appreciate it!
