African Rock Hotel is by far one of the most enjoyable places that we have stayed in the Johannesburg area. Located in a gated community we felt completely safe and well cared for during our visit to the area. The rooms were great, beds very comfortable, lovely decor and wonderful soaps. The owners, Otti and Zelda, went out of their way to make us feel at home and the staff was absolutely marvelous with their attention to detail. The food was out of this world and fantastically prepared by chef Christine. With our tip money to her she went right out and purchased a much desired cook book which speaks of her devotion to pleasing the guests with her culinary creations. Blessings the manager was amazing and made us feel at home in many, many ways and was very professional and caring in her desire to meet our needs. Orlando and the rest of the staff were so helpful and helped make our stay delightful. The gardens are small but well kept and nice for bird photography. We visited the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre (highly recommended for great photos of cheetahs and wild dogs - and the admission fee goes toward research and care for these and other amazing animals) and the Cradle of Humankind. Best place to stay in Johannesburg and only about 20 minutes from the airport makes this a great find.
