Taxi in Sandton

We will be staying at The Intercontinental, Nelson Mandela Square, and are thinking of going out to dinner one evening at The Bull Run... How easy is it to get a taxi (not an expensive hotel car!) in the evenings? Is there a company we can pre-book with - both to pick us up at our hotel and also to return at a set time after the meal? Not sure how safe it would be to just "hail" a taxi on the side of the road!

Thanks

Johannesburg, South...

Hi Alexandra

You should be able to arrange a meter taxi from your hotel...

You cannot hail a taxi on the street in South Africa.

You need to prebook.

There are a number of taxi companies available for this purpose, just google.

The distance is only about 650 metres, in the busiest part of Sandton, so, personally, I would walk, especially if there will be more than one person.

Another option is to use a Tuk-Tuk for the short distance. It will certainly be more economical than a metered taxi.

They operate between 06:30 and 21:00

Just use Uber if you have access to data on your phone.

Have you checked if the IC has an area shuttle? Or just walk it is at most 10 minutes.

8 minutes at a reasonable walking pace.
