Johannesburg Driving Stress Level: 7/10

Driving in Johannesburg has something of a bad reputation but gladly it is not as bad now as it used to be. You will still need to have your wits about you and just remember to keep your windows closed and doors locked. Keep your valuables hidden and always be vigilant when you are stopped at petrol stations, traffic lights and near concealed entrances.


If you are visiting Johannesburg then it is highly recommended to rent a GPS unit. South Africa's road signs are lacking and without such a device you will end up on the wrong side of the city or the wrong part of town. It is highly recommended that you do not be cheap here and simply pay the extra money for the added confidence to your journey.
