Johannesburg International Airport - OR Tambo Gautrain Station is elevated on the international departures level, accessible by elevators and escalators to the arrivals level, one level below the departures. For more information, see Gautrain official site.
From the airport, it is possible to take a bus to Gautrain station. It is a very short journey, but can still be tedious due to the number of buses that go to the city.

Buses are not always the most convenient option, as you may have to walk a long time to reach your destination. There is also a new train service that departs from Tambo Central Station, but it has yet to gain popularity.

There is an old fashioned lighthouse, as well as a theme park.
