I met Laurence in 2009 at a Safari Camp in Mpumalanga as he was catering to other clients. I found him to be very professional and I enjoyed the conversations we had around the camp fire. We swapped contact info and I contacted him a few months later prior to my next trip to Africa. He met our group at...

My wife and I stayed here for a week as we were visiting family, some of our family who stay on the other side of Johannesburg also stayed a couple of nights as well. The rooms are spacious, clean and have most things you need. Nearly all the rooms open on to the patio with the pool which although a...

From initially booking 4 rooms to leaving was very pleasant experience. It is in a residential area of Kempton Park so a bit disorientating but about 20 minutes from Airport. One set off guests where only arriving after last check-in but still Journey’s Inn offered to collect. The so called budget room is not on par with the other rooms...

Close to airport, easy pick up for early morning trip to the kruger. Very clean, peaceful, friendly staff. Friendly dog and cats as well. Fireplace and surrounding couches made for a perfect place to relax before an excellent home cooked meal. Only downsides are that the pool is not heated so too cold to use in April for my liking,...

Super clean room. Convenient location, easy drive to the airport. The pool was very clean and the outdoor fireplace was a great touch. The entire staff was very welcoming and ready to help answer any questions. The "honor" bar was very convenient for the entire family.

Very pleasant stay, close to airport, Rooms are clean. Bathrooms spacious. Cats were friendly. Dog overweight. Breakfast selection sufficient. Service quick. But now you are forcing me to write at least 200 words, and I am getting annoyed.

This is a very reasonably priced place for an overnight stay with excellent access to the airport. You might argue that it is too close as it is directly below the flight path so a noisy jet passes overhead every few minutes at peak times. There seems to a curfew after 22:00 so there are no flights until the morning...

On our way between Zambia and Dar es Salaam we had to spend the night in Johannesburg. Instead of staying at an impersonal hotel at the airport we chose the Journey's Inn Africa. We were not disappointed. Excellent BBQ for dinner, clean room, bonfire and nice breakfast the next morning. Everything the we needed for this short transit.
