Rustenburg in is the direction of one of the preferred
weekend getaways for residents of Johannesburg
The main attraction for many is the Lost CitySun City
leisure and casino resorts situated just outside
Rustenburg, but also a collection of wilderness
preserves and wildlife parks add to the attraction.
Rustenburg is also no more than an hours drive
so getting there is easy.
You can fly if you want, Rustenburg has an airport
offering limited domestic connections, and
more will be added for the Fifa World Cup
Soccer Tournament 2010.
However from Johannesburg to Rustenburg it makes
much more sense to jump in a car or on a bus and
travel up the N4 for a short an comfortable
ride to the sights and the stadium.
Rustenburg is en-route to Botswana and most
inter-city coach services ply the route between
Pretoria/Gabarone with Rustenburg
as a stopover.
From Johannesburg though you will need to make
your way to Pretoria.
The main bus terminus is on the northeast
corner of Church Square in downtown Pretoria.
Not all coach services offer Rustenburg as
a stopover on this route so it is worth
checking in advance.
Here are a selection of the main operators:
TransLux InterCape Greyhound City to City (no frills coach booked thru TransLux) SA Roadlink (super luxury coaches) Citiliner
Long distance minibus taxis run frequently
between Johannesburg and Rustenburg.
The main terminus is adjacent to the
Pretoria train station on the corner of
Railway St and Paul Kruger St
>> This is a rough and ready local service.
It is usually friendly but not always safe
Baz Bus does not currently offer
the northwest as a route option.
There are currently no scheduled train services
There will however be services available
during the Fifa World Cup Soccer Tournament 2010
Jump on the N1 leading north out of Johannesburg,
then keep your eyes open as you come into
Pretoria for signs for the N4 west which will
include indications for Rustneburg.
It is a short drive, less than an hour on a good day,
with views on the left hand side of the
beautiful Magaliesberg Nature Reserve.
