Hairdryer can be borrowed from reception. Little garden with deck chairs and pool outside the chalets. Dinner reasonably priced though we didn't eat there. Nice relaxing place if you don't like the big airport hotels. They provide...

With their new owners Safari Club had a total make over and came out beautifully. Everything looks fresh and new again. The rooms breath a calm atmosphere where you can have a good night rest after a day of traveling. Enjoy a good diner in their restaurant.

Once you have entered the grounds of the lodge it is easy to forget that it was only a 5 minute drive from the O.R. Tambo airport. The grounds are very well maintained, which includes a swimming pool and the trees are regularly visited by colourful birds. I found the atmosphere very relaxing and the staff very helpful.
