What is the point of being stuck in an airport for a few hours? This guide is just to give you an idea provided you can hire out a car for a day from Lanseria. You can decide to drive to the Lion Park first and enjoy a couple of hours before driving to Al Fresco for a lovely lunch. Then head back for Lanseria to catch your flight out. You will need a good five hours to do all at your own leisurely pace. Both places are easily accessible from Malibongwe Road that leads to Lanseria Airport.

Featuring four prides of lions of various ages, Lion Park also boasts a number of rhino as well as other herbivores. The lions are enclosed in a high-security area while the greater park area is given over to the other animals. For the adventurous, photographs with lion cubs are permitted under supervision. A restaurant and curio shop is situated in shady surrounds. Picnic facilities are also available. These areas are clearly demarcated and nature conservation officers are always on hand.
This legendary country restauarant has been going strong for many years and is a favourite with families as there is a lovely playground for children to play. The extensive al la carte menu caters for all tastes and the pizzas are out of this world. Set in an attractive setting with generous patios, it is so easy to relax and unwind. The prices are good value for money and there is a good selection of wines on offer too.© Roger
