This one was the worst accommodation of our holiday. Our room was oke, but the shower is really bad. My parents room was so nearby the road that he couldn't sleep because of the traffic. The crew is ok, but can be better. Breakfast can be much better. There is not a lot of different food. Really simple and the...

The staff were very considerate to us following our long lousy flight from Perth on SAA which had been delayed for 3 hours prior to departure and endless hold ups clearing Immigration. The room was comfortable, the meals, especially breakfast were excellent. Our concerns about possible noise levels were unfounded. It is not 4 star but it is comfortable and...

This was not the best place I have stayed but it had some good things going for it. First, it was really close to the airport which made pick up and drop off real easy. The rooms are fine, not dirty, but nothing amazing. The food was great, the cook they have does a great job of cooking some local...

We stayed here 2 nights before the start of our safari tour. A very basic offering. It is close to airport and offers a free transfer. We did not leave the complex as the surrounding area did look very rough and no restaurants close by. Staff were always smiling. This does not have a restaurant. It offers a breakfast buffet...

I stayed at the Safari club in August 2016 for one night for business. Being only 4.5 km from the airport and my meetings being in the area the location is ideal for people arriving or leaving the airport during peak traffic times. My room was positioned in the garden looking out to the swimming pool. It was clean and...

We stayed one night on our way to our safari. I liked that they allowed us to check us in early morning after our 15 hour flight to Jbg. The place is basic, but decent. Don't expect luxury,a also is close to the airport so nowhere close to the city if that is what you are looking for. Since we...

I stay at Safari Club on business quite often, not because I really like the place but because the closeness to the warehouse and Airport suits me. I really wish the owner would sort out some simple issues that would make the stay more pleasant. As a local it really bites me that many overseas guests stay here and this...

We disliked the stay in the Safari club. They should pick us up from the airport, but this went wrong. Finally we were with more people than seats in a transfer bus to the hotel. The reception was difficult to understand and not very friendly. The rooms were dirty, one of the beds was broken, the airco made a terrible...

We stayed at the Safari Club for two nights one at the beginning of a 14 day tour and one at the end. The first night my partner was awoken by someone opening the door to our room around midnight - even though we had locked it. Given that we couldn't put our valuables in the safe because it was...
