  • "Beautiful location 20 min from Johannesburg Airport"

    08 November 2014

    "Infrastructure is basic and enough. Rustic African decoration. Good service. Attention to detail. Excellent breakfast. Double bed was extremely comfortable. Beautiful place.On the downside I would point out the lack of signalization to get there. Is actually not that difficult. But at night, looking for signs that are not there and street names that have been scratched off, it gets a bit challenging. Strongly suggest you print out a map of the area with the specific address. Confirm address as the link from Safarinow had a wrong address. Also the toilet is barely separated by one wall, so not much privacy for our taste. Its far away from restaurants, we learnt afterwards that is better to ask the owner to start the fire and you can make your own bbq (bring your meat)."
