“Great place to stay in Jo'burg area - a safari lodge in the city!”
Reviewed 15 February 2011

We stayed at MoAfrika Lodge for 3 nights after our trip to Kruger. The lodge is situated within easy access time both to the international airport, and the large shopping centers.
It is really like staying in a typical lodge - but in the heart of the city.
Very quiet and pastoral, with unbelievably comfortable rooms (just the bed was worth the stay!). Unwinding on the deck after a hard day's touring or shopping - nothing better.

Actually what you looking for after/before an long distance flight is a quiet, calmly and peacefully place to stay, to come down and to get a first vibe of South African well known hospitality. Moafrica is one of these places in Jozi. It’s just a jump of a cat from Airport but within a complete kind of countryside scenery. There is also a shopping yard near to catch all things you urgently need to have on vacation. The accommodation itself is a new born star under the “money for value places” in Jozi. There a lots of them, certainly, but not worth to stay in or to talk about. Believe me, as a tour operator, I’ve seen many places here. The most important points, it’s safe, clean and with very friendly, helpfully staff. No noise, no street, no Pub will disturb your sleep ever.

We stayed at Moafrika for one night after arriving at Jo'burg from Capetown. Moafrkda is situated less than 20 minutes from Jo'burg airport and was so convenient for our onward trip to Kruger National Park. The owner/host picked us up at the airport and took us to our accommodation. If you are looking for something a little bit different this is your place. Beautiful surroundings out in the country, the lodgings have a swimming pool, fantastic clean and comfortable rooms but its the host who really makes your stay personable. He was happy to drop us into town to do some shopping and pick us up again at a set time. He organised us a take-out breakfast roll as we had a pick up time of 5.30am for our onward trip to Kruger. We really couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation, it certainly beats staying in a stuffy hotel in the centre of Jo'burg!

A conveniently situated lodge with all the looks, facilities and management to create a fantastic business or leisure holiday.

I visited MoAfrika Lodge from 18th till the 30 th of November. I had an amazing time there! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The warm and in African style decorated rooms were spacious and clean. The bathrooms were spottles, and towels were changed every day. The bar was always open for a refreshing drink, and the staff made a simple, but very tasty meal for you on request.

Very friendly and guest minded owner Anthony had countless ideas for interesting things to do in and around Johannesburg. I wish I could have stayed longer, because Johannesburg is a place with a buzz that never bores you.

I can recommend MoAfrika Lodge to anyone who wants perfect value for money, excellent service and an overall pleasant and comfortable holiday experience. I will definitely return to MoAfrika Lodge.

Special thanks to Andrew, who made me the best coffee in the morning when I was awaking on the sunny deck.
Also special thanks to Anthony, who made me feel at home and showed me some of the Johannesburg finest attractions and sights.
