Very straightforward and easy to find. Just follow signs for the Gautrain. There are like 6 or 8 kiosks and a couple manned windows. My credit card wouldn't work at the kiosk for some reason and had to use the manned window, other than that no issues. Trains about every 10 minutes or so. Gautrain is a great option for sure.

Sorry noticed you said you arrive on a Sunday, I believe trains are every 30 minutes then.
