Joberg is commercial town... limited things to see as tourist. 1 day bus tour is good enough.... (we are where highlighted safety all the time) So not sure if one can go on it's own) Covers major areas... separate line to Swato is costly

Buses are regular and on time. Check their website for latest and updated times. But they usually run every 30 minutes or so. Enjoy!
