          We are two couples traveling together in September. One couple will have two days there and the other couple only one complete day. My question concerns transportation as we will not have a car. We are concerned about getting from and to the airport, sightseeing Jo'Burg and also getting to Sandton for shopping. Is the Saffron Guest House a wise choice if we do not have a car at our disposal?
