Here is a walking map to the closest Metrorail station Isando:

Go to the ground floor of Domestic Terminal B. Walk all the way to the southern end of the terminal until you see a clinic. Go out and turn left. Keep walking on the left side and walk until you see a walking bridge that goes over the highway. Cross the bridge and the railway bridge, buy a ticket from the ticket counter and go to platform one to wait for your train. There are several trains. Take one that has a number starting with 06. The Metrorail train trip takes about 1 hour and the walk 15 minutes. Johannesburg Park Station is the last stop so you can't miss it.

Happy travels!
