I have to spend an extended weekend in Johannesburg because of a visa I must get so I'll be 5 nights.
I'm looking for somewhere safe and convenient and near supermarkets, restaurants andpublic transport, especially the Gautrain.
I do NOT drive so I must walk or take other transport and want to avoid taxis if possible.

I really appreciate any help.

But some people told me that Namibia is more beautiful.. Or I can visit Zanzibar. I have 3 weeks. Which country do you recommend?

I purchased a ticket online for Shosholoza Meyl train from Joburg to Cape Town 30 Nov. Yet, when I printed my "receipt" there was nothing on it but the letterhead. Email requests for help to Shosholoza have gone unanswered.
Does anyone know if it's realistic for me to be able to pick up my ticket when I get to Joburg with nothing other than my name and the blank receipt?
