I am planning a visit to Jo'burg in August this year. I plan to use public transportation. But how do I go about getting a taxi. It's not like London or any other place where taxis look for passengers. Is it safe for a backpacker to use taxi? Are there are any reliable numbers to call to get a taxi?
Thanks,

    I have traveled a lot in RSA and Joburg is not a safe place.
    Its reputation is bad. You should get information from the local people on the proper safety precautions if you go there. over 3 years ago

    Uber is safe enough and once there you can easily get local taxi company numbers. Jhb is only unsafe in certain areas like central Jhb. about 3 years ago

    Joburg is definitely not safe. Would avoid it any time but definitely when you do not know the area. almost 3 years ago
