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...

Away from the bustle and noise of Joburg yet just off the highway, this oasis of calm offers a great place to relax and recharge your batteries ( figuratively and literally) before heading out for adventures or going back home. We stayed in the main building in large spacious rooms with enormous bathrooms - sink, toilet, and shower. The self...

As we only had a 20 hour-stopover and no car in Johannesburg we decided to stay in a lodge which was located close to the airport and, moreover, offered a free shuttle service. 1.) We were informed that our driver would be waiting for us in front of the customer's information desk at the arrival terminal. However, it took us...

I stayed in this lodge after a 5 days safari next to Kruger Park. The place itself is very nice - large garden, nice lobby, nice bar under the roof. The rooms are quite large, furniture is good, the bathroom ok. People can sit in the garden whereever they want. In front of the rooms are chairs, in the room...

I love this place. Yes, it is close to the highway, but it has a super nice garden and the staff is wonderful. Everything you need is here for an easy overnight. They pick you up at the airport just near the big tourist info desk after you exit baggage claim. You may have to wait for them to show...
