“Excellent Choice, especially for those in transit”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

Great value, especially with free transfers to and from the airport. Rooms are great, breakfast mammoth (except for the little birds that fly in to try and steal some bread), and the staff very helpful. Rooms have everything you could require, including internet. The location isn't great if you are wanting to explore Johanessburg

Room Tip: The better rooms are in the courtyard, the rooms in the main building seem to only be used if they a...

We enjoyed our stay although it was only for one night as a stopover before flying home from SA. The accomodation is not too spacious but very comfortable and the gardens, especially lit by large candles at night are quite stunning. We also dined there and had an excellent meal with great service and then enjoyed a relaxing evening upstairs in the honesty bar. There is also a large sitting room with internet access and a selection of books and magazines.
The free tranfer to the airport is a huge bonus-no looking for taxis or worrying about returning the hired car. We arrived at the safari club and then dropped off our car at the airport accompanied by the club driver who took us back and then took us once more to the airport the following morning at no cost!!! Wonderful service.

This is a hidden gem in the area. The setting is peaceful with outside rooms at the edge of a large garden with beautiful lawns. The rooms are smallish but nothing really to complain about. We had coffee / tea in the rooms and the bathroom had a proper shower with good water pressure. The establishment has a very nice and warmly lounge and bar room under thatch. It is not well signposted (apparently for security reasons) but a map or a phone call get you there quite easily. Pity we couldn't stay longer!

Room Tip: They have rooms in the main building as well as rooms outside - I preferred the outside rooms.

If you need to stay near the OR Tambo Airport, this is the place! The staff will collect you or if driving yourself, it is really easy to find. It is only about a 10 minute drive from the airport along the motorway to Pretoria. Behind the security fence is another world - thatched cottages, the main lodge with restaurant, bar, lounge area complete with internet, outside are beautiful gardens and a pool.
We initially stayed one night on our arrival in South Africa in a family room. It was huge as was the bathroom and all extremely comfortable. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms.The food in the restaurant was tasty and served with a smile. Breakfast next morning was equally impressive with a large range to choose from, cereals, fruit, hot and cold dishes, croissants, muffins, tea, coffee etc.
On our return to Johannesburg we decided to stay again and this time had a room in the main lodge. It was a massive room, with two double beds, lounge chairs, desk, the bathroom had double sinks, bath and shower.
Not only is the accommodation fantastic, but the staff are too - always smiling, friendly and helpful. Safari Club is a much better option than the sterile environment of a hotel and great value for money. Well done to the the owners and staff.... keep doing what you're doing.

My friend and I had to stay here for one night in transit just getting back from a safari and then a 6:30am flight the next day. Tired and hungry, this place was perfect! Beautiful and relaxing grounds, very safe, clean room, internet in main lounge and friendly staff. Due to the early flight, we missed the breakfast that was included so upon leaving it was packed up for us. Thanks Precious! The airport was super close and if need be, we would definitely stay here again!

I cannot think of a better place to make a transfer in Johannesburg. Nice rooms, beautiful garden and main lodge and good dinner. They pick you up and take you to the airport, included in the price. I liked very much the honesty bar!! Will repeat next time, no doubt about it. Ah! and good price!

Me and my husband started our trip at Safari Club and we just loved the little hidden paradise.
The rooms are so neat and tidy. The food was from one of the best and friendliest chefs (Lucky) I know. The staff were so friendly and they really went the extra mile to assist us and make us feel home. A big thank you to Precious, Birlize and Natalie for all their help. You cannot ask for more friendlier and accommodating staff

It was well above what we expected. The garden is so beautiful and peac ful and you would have no idea you were 5 minutes away from OR Tambo International.

You are definitely 5 star.....
We will definitely be seeing you again.

Room Tip: The outside rooms are nice and big and you cant hear any city noise.
