Aside from major time spent with your customer service people (talking 10+ hours in multiple sessions - one session was over 4 hours) to work on a name change issue and a refund issue, Orbitz has been great. Frustrating that SAA would not accept a passport name change (when a person gets married they need to update their SS card, Driver's license and Passport in the states and can't do this from a foreign country but have to get to the US first to do so and then travel back home with new info. If I could help it, I would never travel SAA again!

Planes are about to be replaced, so I'll forgive the failing entertainment system. Otherwise a good flight.

I ended up missing my connecting flight because our departure was delayed by almost 1 hour and a half. And even though my next flight was also SAA, they left without us.

Fly to Lanseria

Travelers fly to Lanseria for one overwhelming reason, to get out and enjoy nature. There are several options for recreational activities and wildlife-based attractions to keep you entertained, including a well-known nature reserve. Lanseria is frequented by visitors who want to see the South African environment in all its majestic beauty.


After you fly to Lanseria, the first place you'll want to visit is The Cradle Nature Reserve. The reserve offers guided tours, excellent meals and a firsthand look into Africa's natural environment and ecosystems. A number of excellent restaurants in the area will keep you full and ready for adventure. Lanseria has few buildings and other manmade structures to take away from the natural beauty of the area.

Hints and tips

The Lanseria International Airport (HLA) is a privately owned airport capable of handling large aircraft. Once you arrive, you can get a car rental at the airport, take a shuttle to the Sandton Gautrain Station or hire a taxi to get you around. Temperatures typically range from the mid-30s to the mid-80s. The coldest time of the year is in July. Cradle Cycle Festival is held each April and offers wine tasting and a cycling race.

Johannesburg When to Go

In the world of South African weather, Cape Town is often too cool and wet, Durban is often too hot and humid, and Johannesburg—at 5,700 feet above sea level on the inland plateau of Highveld—is often just right, with sunny days and balmy evenings. Sure, it bakes on some summer days (think 95 degrees), but the scalding temperatures are often broken by brisk breezes and booming thunderstorms—which make the summer months of November, December, and January the rainiest of the year. In fact, some claim that Johannesburg is the most lightning-struck city on earth.

Winters can get pretty chilly, with frost in the mornings, though it’s only snowed here about a half-dozen times. Come August, the winds can get strong enough to blow a yellow haze down from the surrounding mines.

If you’re worried about finding an event to catch while you’re in town, don’t be. Thanks to Joburg’s size and diversity, there’s something for everyone, anytime. The FNB Dance Umbrella (February–March) showcases up-and-coming choreographers over a three-week stretch. The Joburg Art Fair (September) is one of the continent’s biggest expos of African art, photography, and furniture, and the same month brings Arts Alive—with poetry, dance, art, and internationally known pop and rap musicians—to some of the biggest stadiums in the city. The Joy of Jazz (August) features some 200 musicians, many of whom play at the clubs of the hip Newtown neighborhood. And the world’s second-biggest timed bicycle race—with 30,000 participants—rolls out on the third Sunday of November, rain or shine.
