From Johannesburg airport you will have to travel to Park Station in Johannesburg or Pretoria Railway station to catch a bus to Makhado (Louis Trichardt). You can either take a taxi or the Gautrain. We recommend the use of the Translux Bus Company (www.translux.co.za) which is a safe choice. Also, it is better to get the ticket online or through us before your arrival to skip long queues at the bus station. However, you should still arrive at the bus station well in advance (at least 30 minutes before departure).
Since all buses leave in the morning you might have to stay overnight in either Johannesburg or Pretoria. Pretoria has a lot more to offer and is safer especially at night. The Lonely Planet website gives you a good overview of possible accomodation (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/south-africa/hotels).
We recently started using shuttle services from OR Tambo to Louis Trichardt for which you are welcome to contact us.
